Isaac Viñales finishes seventh after a strong fight in Le Mans, Maria Herrera 19th

 In Moto3, News


The Husqvarna Factory LaGlisse has completed the French GP with good feelings, after a strong performance by Isaac Viñales. The rider from Llança has kept a constant and fast rythm during the whole race, but two wobbles at the beginning of the round made him lose contact with the group in front of him, making it so difficult to catch them again.

Nonetheless, Isaac has fought until the last lap to finish seventh, a positive result in a very fast and even race. After this result, Viñales keeps the sixth place in the championship and arrives to Mugello, a circuit where he finished second in 2014, with the aim of taking another step forward that allows him to fight for the podium again.

For María Herrera it has been a difficult day, since she crashed during the warm-up and lost confidence to face the race. Even though she made a good start, the Toledan rider lost a lot of places because she didn’t find the right set up for her bike.

The positive part is that María keeps adding kilometres and experience to her career, something very valuable in regard of upcoming rounds of the championship, when she will continue fighting to score her first points.

The Moto3 World Championship will be back in two weeks time, at Mugello. The Husqvarna Factory LaGlisse will face the sixth date of the season, the Italian GP, with confidence and the aim of improving the results scored during this week’s French GP.

#32 Isaac Viñales – 7th
“I made quite a good start, but I suffered a couple wobbles that made me lose contact with the leading group. I was riding in the same lap times than them, but I wasn’t able to catch them because the rythm was so strong. I thought that they would battle between them and lose time, but it didn’t happen and the race pace was so fast. We hoped to end in a better place in this round, but I’m happy because my rithm was good”.

#6 María Herrera – 19th
“Before starting the race we knew that we were taking blind steps because we didn’t have the chanve to try everything in the warm up. I tried to stay as close to the front as possible in the start, but I wasn’t too confident after this morning’s crash during the warm up, so I focused on finishing the race. Now it’s time to think about the next race, Mugello, and work harder”.
