Lopez 7th in #AustrianGP, DNF for Aldeguer
At the Red Bull Ring the CAG SpeedUp team has just finished the Austrian Grand Prix race. With seventh place Alonso Lopez closes a rather positive weekend, while Aldeguer loses the chance to fight for the top ten after the crash on lap 12.
Fast and competitive in every session, then the excellent qualifying in which for his first time in Moto2 he took the front row and then the race, again with the big riders. One lap after the start and Alonso was already at the top, but for a few laps because then the feeling with his Boscoscuro changed, especially in the corners. However, López managed to stay in the top ten until he crossed the finish line in seventh position.
Not the best Sunday for Aldeguer. A demanding race was expected but within the reach of the young Spaniard who after two days of continuous growth had confirmed his progress especially in the morning warm up (P1 in 1’34.684). Unfortunately, team 54 finished their race early with a crash at the new chicane on lap 12.
ALONSO LÓPEZ #21: 7th
I’m happy with how the race went, but I honestly hoped it would finish better! I think it is one of the Sundays on which we have learned the most and from which we can get important data that will help us to be more competitive from now on. I am very motivated and with a great desire to get back on the bike because, honestly, I think we need very little to take the step to always stay in front! Thanks as always to all the sponsors, the team for the work done and all those who support me every day.
FERMÍN ALDEGUER #54: DNF
Today we had the pace to do well, we deserved to be on the podium but the crash left us without the chance to fight. Anyway, let’s look at the positive side of what was our first Austrian weekend while continuing to grow and gain experience. Eyes on Misano, I can’t wait to continue working.
