No points but another good learning experience for Cardus
QMMF Racing Team rider Ricky Cardús had a good start into the San Marino Grand Prix. He made up five positions in only the first lap and seemed to able to reach the group that was battling for world championship points for a while. But the young Spaniard soon found himself struggling with the same lack of confidence in his machine that had slowed him in practice and found it difficult to fight with the other strong riders around him. Cardús settled for 21st place in the end und took the race as another valuable learning experience on his way up in the hard-fought Moto2 category.
Ricky Cardús – 21º
“The race was tougher than usual, surely the hardest of this season for me. I want to apologize to the team, the Qatari Federation and our sponsor Maquinza, because we could not maintain the level of the previous races. My team gave everything to reverse the situation and I appreciate it. But this time I did not have the necessary confidence. The best thing of the race is that I finished it. We took valuable information from the weekend which will help us in the future. Now I will rest a few days, but I will not stop training, sleep and eat well. Only that.”
Luis Soldano, teamm coordinator: “It was a difficult weekend for us. Ricky had problems with the cornering lines in some of the turns and he was not able to keep up with other riders that finished in the top 15. I want to thank the team for their hard work during the weekend to fix the bikes of both riders!”
