6th place for Bezzecchi in #MalaysianGP, 10th for Marini
On his 25th birthday and just two races from the end of the Championship (Qatar GP and Valencia GP in the next two weeks), Marco Bezzecchi finished in 6th at the Malaysian GP for the Mooney VR46 Racing Team and confirms P3 in the Championship with 323 points (P3 also among the Teams with 494 points). Another top 10 finish for Luca Marini, eighth overall with 171 points.
Marco was the protagonist of an excellent first part of the race: after a practically perfect start from the sixth box on the grid and in P4 at the end of the first lap, he maintained a constant pace until the finishing line.
Luca also did well, starting from fifth place on the grid. Fighting in the group for most of the race, he has struggled in the final stages, and finished in 10th place.
Not a fantastic race, but not terrible either. I started off really well, the first lap I was in P4. I tried to stay with Pecco and Jorge (Bagnaia and Martin), but I didn’t have their pace. I lost them, then I tried to push, but Fabio (Quartararo) finished really strong. Overall very good, although I was hoping for better. Full gas to Qatar now.
A very difficult race: I tried to give my all at the start, because I knew it would be the crucial moment. The acceleration wasn’t bad, then I put the second gear, the bike started to move and when the tyre hit the ground I lost the front. I had to close the throttle at turn 1 and I lost a lot of positions. The speed wasn’t bad, the top 6 was possible, but I was struggling a lot in the slipstream. I started having problems with the front tyre and then the rear tire dropped. Too bad, let’s go back at work in Qatar.
