Fabio Di Giannantonio 13th in the #BritishGP but DNF for Alex Marquez

 In MotoGP, News

A dream Saturday and a nightmare Sunday. This is racing… but today everything that could go wrong did go wrong at Gresini Racing.

Let us start from Fabio Di Giannantonio who finished 13th after a race in which all sorts of things happen: a coming together with Martin at the start pushed him all the way to the back of the pack. He then put together a great comeback to the top ten, before the rain came. The Italian rider decided to go for the pit stop and change the bike to the one with wet set-up, but the weather does not follow his intentions and the final part of the race is an uphill battle. Two points that left a bitter taste in his mouth.

Alex Marquez’s race turned out to be a very short one. The Spaniard’s performance was brought to an early end due to a technical problem on his Desmosedici machine, as he was forced to retire while he was battling for the podium right behind Espargaró.

“Three races in one today. Two comebacks, the rain, the pit stop… All sorts of things happened and maybe we could have had a bit better luck during the whole weekend. We had a great pace and we could have battled with the top guys both on the dry and in wet conditions. We still did our race and we’ll go to Austria with plenty of confidence.”

“Not much to say… We had the pace to stay with the leaders. I started quite good an despite Bezzecchi and Bagnaia were quite far, I was well placed behind Espargaró and I was feeling good on the bike. Too bad because with today’s conditions we lost another chance to be among the protagonists.”
