On Sunday morning, Spielberg welcomed MotoGP and spectators with gray skies and rainy warm-up sessions. 🌧

Fortunately, by the start of the Moto2 race, the track was so dry that only very few spots of moisture remained on the asphalt.

Starting from 18th on the grid, our Tony certainly didn't have the best starting position for the difficult 25-lap race, but with little to go before the start🚦, the Italian managed to work his way up to 15th. However, among the various feuds and smears, he then lost some positions, ending the race in 17th place. 🏁

Let's say that this race weekend certainly didn't start in the best way: the knee contusion during the bike training, the difficult bike setup... But one important positive note, in the end, we brought home: in the last third of the race, in fact, our super Shark recorded lap times that would have been worthy of the top10!

It's very encouraging and important that our ambitious rookie felt much more comfortable on his Kalex in the race than in qualifying, because this is the good base on which he and his team can start to work for the second week, always here in Spielberg!

🎙 Tony: "The feeling today was improving lap by lap and I understood the bike a lot better and overall I think we figured out what direction we need to take to improve next week. I'm sure we can be stronger, but it's critical to start further ahead.

Halfway through the race, I started to feel pretty good on the bike because it was working well and I tried to make up ground because my lap times were improving so much. I felt and rode better than I did in qualifying, so that means we need to focus on the current setup and work on the details. We will work hard to get a better result next week." 💪🏻

Jürgen Lingg:

Team manager

🎙Jürgen Lingg:"We expected more, but we learned a lot from this weekend, so it was still very interesting. It was difficult for Tony because he started quite far back, but in the last third of the race he set the same times as people between fifth and tenth. With those times, so you can easily get into the top10. So for next week I look at it pretty positively, because with knowledge and experience we hope to definitely do better."
