Solid 4th for Bezzecchi in #ThaiGP, Marini 7th
Marco Bezzecchi scored another important placement in the top 5, crucial to maintaining the third place in the Championship with 310 points (P2 in the Team classification with 464 points).
The rider of the Mooney VR46 Racing Team set the fastest lap and took fourth place today at the Thai GP. Luca Marini was struggling more after an excellent start and finished in P7.
Starting from the fourth place on the grid and forced into P10 after the start, thanks to an excellent pace, Marco was the protagonist of a great comeback, and was really close to the podium.
After starting from the second box on the grid, Luca fought in the leading group for the entire first phase of the race, finishing in 7th. He is eighth in the overall standings with 164 points.
A great battle, I had fun, it’s just a shame about the end, I hoped something would happen between the top three guys, obviously I’m joking. I didn’t start well, I found myself in the middle of the group, I had a couple of contacts and I had to recover. In these situations it is impossible to try to manage the tyre, I gave everything, but with the hard at the rear I was still able to finish the race while remaining competitive. I lost a lot of time in overtaking and when I got to P4 the others were ahead. I suffered more than expected with my shoulder, now let’s go home and recover as best we can for the grand finale. We can do well.
A complicated race, especially the last 7/8 laps when I had no tyre on the rear. The potential shown yesterday was very good, but not enough for the podium today. I was struggling when entering the corners, the bike wouldn’t stop and I have struggled to get to the finishing line. I couldn’t keep up with the top guys and had to give up at the end, it was a shame. Overall, considering my condition, a good weekend. Let’s continue like this.
