Alonso Lopez finishes #JapaneseGP in 13th, Fermin Aldeguer 22nd
At the Motegi Mobility Circuit, Alonso López and Fermín Aldeguer finished the Japanese race in P13 and P22 respectively.
As the traffic lights went out, the number 21 performed one of his usual starts, jumping from P6 to P3. A position that Alonso managed to maintain until completing the two long laps imposed by the management after the last race in India. Once both penalties were completed, López returned to the middle of the group with an excellent tenth position and also climbed up to eighth place. However, starting from the twelfth lap, the rider from Madrid began to experience braking problems and was thus unable to finish the race with the desired result. P13 for Alonso in the Japanese Grand Prix with the regret of having lost the chance of arriving on the podium due to the two penalties.
Excellent start also for Aldeguer who jumped from ninth position to fifth place, unfortunately losing it after a few corners. In fact, Fermín did not maintain the place he achieved, dropping back to seventeenth position. Unfortunately, during the race the number 54 lost control of his Boscoscuro as it left the track. Fermín then managed to get back into the race but was no longer able to reach the points, eventually crossing the finish line in P22.
LÓPEZ #21: 13th
I’m a bit disappointed with how the race went because after yesterday’s sensations I had very high expectations. I started very well but after the two long laps I started to have problems braking. I would have liked to demonstrate my potential today but I still have to think that there are still many races to go so we hope to continue making progress in the next ones.
ALDEGUER #54: 22nd
I made an excellent start but unfortunately the position I had acquired slipped away after a contact at the start of the race. Unfortunately, I also went off the track during the race, causing me to lose several positions. On the one hand I’m happy because the pace was there but on the other, I’m very disappointed because I could have finished a better race.
