Fermin Aldeguer and Alonso Lopez 6th and 7th in #AmericasGP
At the Circuit of the Americas, Beta Tools SpeedUp concludes the third and stormy round of the 2023 Moto2™ World Championship in sixth and seventh position.
The difficulties encountered by Aldeguer after yesterday’s crash paid off today with an incredible comeback in the race. Excellent start for Fermín who managed to recover positions from the fourth row of the grid thanks to speed and decisive overtaking up to third place with six laps to go. Unfortunately, during the last lap, Canet’s impact caused him to lose positions and the possibility of hitting his first world podium by crossing the finish line in 6th. Team 54 showed today a great progress obtaining the best result since the beginning of the season.
As the lights went out, López immediately leapt to the lead with a stunning start. After a few laps, however, the suit began to tighten to the point of making his arm fall asleep and unfortunately Alonso was no longer able to maintain the excellent pace of the start of the race and gritting his teeth he arrived 8th at the finish line.
ALDEGUER #54: 6th
It wasn’t exactly the position we expected but after yesterday’s crash and the start in P11 we can only be happy. I found an excellent feeling with the bike during the race thanks to which we were able to reassemble and fight. Even if in the end I wasn’t able to keep third position, I’m still happy and I’m going to Jerez with a different head and with clear objectives.
LÓPEZ #21: 7th
From today’s race I honestly expected a lot more for how I started. After a couple of laps the suit made my arm go numb and it was hard to ride. A pity because I think I could have done very well and demonstrated a higher level.
