ALEIX RECOVERS AND FINISHES IN THE POINTS
It was almost a photocopy of what happened seven days ago at the Red Bull Ring: today a red flag once again interrupted the first part of the race, which then restarted for a 12-lap distance.
Aleix Espargaró exploited both starts well, moving up positions and finishing with an outstanding twelfth place. But, more than anything, the Aprilia rider’s pace was extremely positive as he managed to keep the gap behind the leaders to just 6.4 seconds on a difficult track and in less-than-easy conditions. The Austrian double race confirms the good base of the RS-GP project, ready to take on the double “home” rounds in Misano.
