 In Alonso Lopez, Fermin Aldeguer, Moto2, News

The Sunday race at the Mugello Circuit for MB Conveyors SpeedUp has just ended. López suffered two long laps and crossed the finish line in an excellent sixth position. Aldeguer crashed at the first corner, closing the Italian GP without the possibility of fighting.

At the start of the lights, the Madrilenian immediately positioned himself behind the leader Acosta, immediately demonstrating great ability to conquer the podium at the end of the race. Unfortunately, after a contact with Lowes, the management imposed a penalty considered by the team to be a bit too exaggerated compared to the contact that took place. Unfortunately, Alonso missed the long lap had to do it again, putting a strain on Lopez’s race for the podium. Determined not to give up though, he made an incredible comeback of eight positions, overtaking the other riders one after the other up to sixth position.

For Aldeguer the race ends with a little bitterness in the mouth. After a good start, determined to catch up with the leading group, Fermín slipped at the first corner thus wasting the opportunity to finish the Italian Grand Prix in an excellent manner.

Determined and fierce, the team leaves Mugello and heads to the next round which will take place at Sachsenring on 16/17/18 June.


It was a shame about the penalty given to me by the race direction. Despite this, I am very happy with the sixth position and even more with the pace followed throughout the race.


We didn’t finish the weekend as we hoped and even less as we wanted. We fought a lot throughout the weekend and for this reason we could definitely achieve a good result in the race. Instead, we slipped at the first corner without understanding why but, as always, the mistake serves as a lesson to us and we will undoubtedly convert it into a strength.
