Aldeguer dominates to win #ThaiGP, 8th for Lopez
At the Chang International Circuit, Aldeguer and Beta Tools SpeedUp return to the first step of the podium after an extraordinary victory. With López in eighth place, the Thai Grand Prix comes to an end.
A weekend worth remembering for young Fermín who ended today with the second victory of the season after a wonderful race. The number 54 had an excellent start and in just a few seconds took the lead of the group, maintaining the leading role until the end. The young rider from Murcia therefore greets Thailand from the first step of the podium, the second of this season after that of Silverstone.
Even López made a good start which allowed him to jump from P7 to P5 in an instant. In the tussle with Arbolino for fifth position, the latter got the better of Alonso who, from that moment on, unfortunately began to fall back crossing the finish line in P8.
ALDEGUER #54 – 1st
To be honest I didn’t expect to have a race like this at all. We had pace all weekend but we weren’t prepared to cover so much distance and prove ourselves superior to Acosta. At the first corner I saw the free track and I said to myself ‘why not give it a try?’ and so I pushed to the maximum, even doing two/three laps at ’35. This result is a source of motivation for us to continue on this path. Thanks to all my team.
LÓPEZ #21 – 8th
From today I expected a different and certainly better result; from mid-race onwards, I started to lose positions and was no longer able to advance until I crossed the finish line in eighth place. Now we’ll see each other in Malaysia with a big desire to demonstrate.
