Aldeguer finishes #AustralianGP in 3rd as weather stops the race, DNF for Lopez

 In Alonso Lopez, Fermin Aldeguer, Moto2, News

The rain at Phillip Island did not seem to stop Aldeguer who closed the Australian Grand Prix by climbing onto the third step of the podium. For the second time in a row, Fermín achieved another sensational result, his third this season.

Shortly after starting from pole position, the number 54 found himself in seventh position due to the rain which had already begun to complicate the riding of all the riders. In fact, the worsening of the track conditions and the intensity of the wind led to a succession of falls which forced the organization to interrupt the race and confirm, despite the fact that 2/3 of the total laps scheduled had not yet been completed, the order of riders on track as the final result of the Australian GP.

Once again, Fermín brought his Boscoscuro and the Beta Tools SpeedUp to the podium.

However, lots of bad luck for López who despite an excellent start suffered a crash in turn 4. After a pit stop, the number 21 took to the track again without however returning to the final classification due to an insufficient number of laps completed.


After a weekend like this we would have expected to get on the first step of the podium but the weather conditions and the little confidence I had made me cross the finish line in third place, which for me is worth as much as a victory. I’m leaving Australia happy and with my eyes already turned to Thailand.


I’m not happy with today’s result because, despite the good sensations during the warm up, I wasn’t able to finish the race as I would have hoped. I started off focused and in a short time I was already first. Unfortunately, the track conditions were not favourable and in fact I fell on the fourth corner of the first lap. A shame because although Arbolino was at another level, I could have fought to get to the podium.
