Solid eighth place finish for Pol Espargaro at Brno

 In MotoGP, News


Monster Yamaha Tech3 Team rider Pol Espargaro delivered another resolute performance in the 11th round of the 2015 MotoGP World Championship as he clinched 8th position in the today’s race at the 5.4 kilometre Automotodrom Brno.

When the highly anticipated event jumped into action, the Spaniard bolted from the middle of the third row and aggressively completed his first lap in 7th position.

From here, he rode behind his teammate and embarked on a hot pace. On the fifth lap, Dani Pedrosa overtook him yet he remained fully focused and continued in his strong rhythm.

As the race distance progressed, the 2013 Moto2 World Champion pushed onwards with his sights fully set on Smith, but as the lap numbers ran out, he met the chequered flag in 8th position in front of just over 138,000 fans.

The result positively concludes a challenging weekend for the 24 year old in the Czech Republic which sees him progress up to 8th with 81 points in the World Championship standings.

Pol Espargaro
“Of course, I can’t be completely satisfied with today’s result, but compared to the race in Indianapolis we finally made a good step forward as we completely made up the gap to Bradley. We were able to improve the behaviour of the bike in the braking areas as well as the turning which was where I was stronger than my teammate today. Unfortunately, we are still lacking rear grip and I’m quite surprised that the other riders don’t seem to face the same difficulties. However I’m convinced that if we can solve this issue then we will be able to ride a lot faster. Therefore, we have still plenty of work ahead of us, but it has definitely been a productive day and we were able to draw some positive conclusions which should help us to make further steps forward during the next races. In addition, another encouraging point of the weekend was that I moved up one position in the championship standings and I’m keen to collect another top result at Silverstone to boost my placement further”
