6th place for Foggia in #MalaysianGP, DNF for Suzuki
The Malaysian Grand Prix has come to an end, and what a race!
Dennis Foggia started from pole position and Tatsuki Suzuki from the 8th spot of the grid, both riders made a good start and pushed from the beginning of the race. As the laps went by, things got complicated as rivals didn’t make things easy and were strong, but the Le0pards didn’t give up.
Unexpectedly, Tatsuki Suzuki crashed when trying to recover positions. The important thing is that the Japanese rider is fine and hasn’t suffered any consequences.
Foggia, on his side, battled throughout the whole race for the podium and victory, even led some laps and passed back when rivals wanted to take his spot. At the last lap, when giving his maximum, he saw himself in the middle of the group that was fighting for the victory and finally crossed the line 6th.
After today’s results, Dennis is 3rd on the general standings (233 points) and team mate Tatsuki Suzuki sticks to 7th position (128 points).
It’s been one of the toughest races of the season, the level of our competitors was high and everything changed in a blink of an eye. I managed to fight for the victory until the very last corner, but finally I crossed the line 6th. I tried my best.
When trying to recover positions, I’ve crashed. It’s been a pity as we could’ve done a nice race. I’ll try to do my best in Valencia to finish the season as well as possible.
