Brilliant podium for Lopez with 2nd in #ArgentinaGP, Aldeguer 15th
Alonso López takes the BETA TOOLS SpeedUp team to the second step of the podium at the Grand Prix of Argentina, concluding an excellent weekend, while Aldeguer crosses the line fifteenth.
It was an AlonShow at the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit as the number 21 was back with a race as a protagonist.
Not a perfect start from the pole in which Alonso lost four positions but very cleverly recovered in a short time and was already in the lead on the second lap. Despite the difficult track conditions, López maintained the first position with Arbolino and Dixon on his heels until three laps from the end in which Arbolino managed to find space and took first place. Alonso stayed behind him, but with the wet track he decided not to take too many risks, finishing the race with a second place that is worth a lot.
For Fermín a very difficult start to the race conditioned by a subdued start and the loss of many positions, twenty-third at the end of the first lap. The sensations on his Boscoscuro bike didn’t give him the confidence to overtake at first until the number 54 found a good pace that allowed him to recover multiple positions arriving fifteenth at the Argentine finish line.
ALONSO LÓPEZ #21: 2nd
I didn’t expect such a race! I’ve always been fast in the wet in Moto2, but I have to say that it has always cost me a lot. Today, as soon as I was able, I took the lead of the group setting my pace, but with a wet track it was very difficult to brake in some points. Second place is worth gold to me after the crash in Portimão, even though I know for sure that without that mistake we could have won!
FERMÍN ALDEGUER #54: 15th
It wasn’t the race we expected but in the end we see the glass as half full. We got to the finish line despite the very difficult track conditions and in the second part of the race we had good pace. I lacked a bit of confidence at the start where I lost several positions but then I was able to recover. Now let’s think about Austin and continue to work as we always have.
