Astonishing #AmericasGP victory for Alex Rins
LCR Honda CASTROL rider Alex Rins won on American soil after a masterful race.
Starting from the second spot of the grid and with yesterday’s Sprint podium in his pocket, Rins made a perfect start, pushed and fought unceasingly for the first position with Bagnaia, and after a Pecco’s mistake, Rins led until the chequered flag opening a gap and imposing a tremendous pace. He just did a perfect race.
Crossing the finish line as the winner, Rins has made history with LCR. The Spaniard’s victory has been the 100th podium of the squad since 1996 until today, and the last time the team won was back in 2018 (Grand Prix of Argentina, with British Cal Crutchlow). Moreover, it’s been a significant result for Honda: the last victory of the Japanese brand was in 2021 (Misano). At LCR Honda CASTROL, we are over the moon and enjoying this unique moment.
Alex Rins – 1st
The race was amazing. I’m so happy; it’s a great achievement. We put some good lap times together, and the tyres were there. It was quite a good race, and I’m happy because the pace was faster than last year, and the bike is more or less the same, so let’s keep going. Many thanks to the team, my family, the sponsors, and everybody supporting us.
