It was the first one of the 2013 season, under artificial lights at Qatar and with an unconventional schedule and a very tricky circuit. Alberto Moncayo started from 31st position on the grid and finished the race in 25th position.

It was hard for Alberto to get the bike over the finish line in one piece as chattering left him fighting with the front end into every corner and just finishing the race was already an achievement.

The Arguiñano-Ginés Racing Team knows clearly what needs to be improved for both riders and will prepare well for the next race, taking place at the Austin circuit in Texas on 21st of April.

Alberto Moncayo #17, 25º: “I don’t have any feeling at the front. This race was like a complete learning experience, I was strolling into almost all corners. I tried to test different positions to see if I could ride more comfortably, I couldn’t feel the front at all. I started well, which is the only positive thing, I started better than some riders I had in front of me. I don’t understand this bike and I need a setting, which we haven’t found all weekend. In Texas we start from zero, but we keep working hard. Thanks to the mechanics for their work.”
