Great race for Lopez with 8th in #ItalianGP, Aldeguer 14th after long lap penalty
From Mugello comes a great performance by Alonso López and the Boscoscuro B-22 bike who together reached the top ten recovering 11 positions. Fermín Aldeguer, penalized by a long lap, secures the points area.
From p19 to p8 with determination, rhythm and tenacity. It is the perfect description of a perfect race that healed, and in a big way, the wound created after a disastrous qualifying. Alonso López, at his second GP of the 2022 Moto2 season, made space among the big names, making himself known as he had already done in the last French GP. His start was good and the first two laps in which he recovered seven positions were fundamental, then Alonso found stability and reached the finish line eighth without errors.
Aldeguer saves what can be saved by remaining in the points although the complicated race. On lap 16 the young Spaniard was slowed down by the long lap, a penalty imposed on him for having exceeded the track limit, in which he lost three positions after battling Dalla Porta in the previous laps, and so reaching p16. Fermin stayed strong and in the last five laps he gave everything up to took p14, gaining two points.
ALONSO LÓPEZ #21: 8th
I’m really very happy with how it went today! In the warm up we couldn’t do much with rain tires. In the race I managed to ride very well in the first laps, making up several positions. I found myself riding with experienced riders and learning a lot from them. In the end we close this weekend with an excellent eighth place, super satisfied with the comeback and the work done in our second race. Thanks to the whole team, let’s continue like this.
FERMÍN ALDEGUER #54: 14th
Not entirely happy with the result of today’s race, but we showed ourselves strong; when we lost positions we were able to recover them quickly with good overtaking. Too bad for that long lap that definitely conditioned our race by taking away the possibility of continuing the ascent. In any case, we are equally happy and determined to continue the good work we are doing.
