Complicated Sunday for Bastianini and Marini at the #ItalianGP
Enea Bastianini and Luca Marini conclude a Gran Premio d’Italia Oakley complex considering all the circumstances that have surrounded the weekend.
Bastianini was unable to see the chequered flag. The Italian suffered a crash during the formation lap after an incident with Zarco. Despite this, Enea was able to return to the pits to start with the second bike, but unfortunately crashed again.
Luca Marini, who did not have a good feeling with the bike during the whole race, crossed the finish line in 17th position.
It was a very tough race and we fought hard. We have to work to close the gap. I had a similar problem in Qatar: I couldn’t feel the rear tire and I couldn’t make it work properly. I was losing on corner entry, I was always sideways and I was also losing acceleration. This weekend was something strange that I had never experienced before. The difference with the front was big and we have to understand what happened because we haven’t made any major changes to the bike since Friday.
Unfortunately, it was a very tough Sunday, starting from the loss of Dupasquier. On the formation lap, coming out of the last corner, I touched with Zarco and I couldn’t do anything to avoid the crash. I tried to get to the pit as fast as possible to take the second bike, but on the first lap I crashed. We’ll try to make up for it in Barcelona and I’ll try to prepare as much as possible because in any case we were fast and competitive.
