Alex Mariñelarena was not able to cross the finishing line and Ezequiel Iturrioz finished in twenty-fifth place but, however, it must be consideredr positively the performances of the new Blusens Avintia riders at the San Marino GP. Without hardly any experience, without knowing the circuit and having to adapt to the organization of a team with the one they had never worked before until this weekend, both Alex and Ezequiel proved that they are able to get used to a discipline as hard as the Moto2 World Championship.
Mariñelarena did a good qualifying session yesterday that allowed him to dream of the points and, although Alex did not want to think about it, this was a realistic option. Today he did a good start and placed himself in the group that fought for the points, proving that yesterday’s thought was real. Unfortunately, Alex was not able to avoid a fall on the second lap which did not have significant physical consequences for the Blusens Avintia rider, but deprived him of showing his fast adaptation to the World Championship.
92 Alex Mariñelarena (NC): ”It has been a pity, because I have done a good start and I was at ease riding in the group where I was. Yesterday we did a good qualifying practice and I think that today I could have been able to end a good race, but it has not been possible. I was in a group in which some of the riders have finished in the top ten, so I have to be happy. Unfortunately, I have touched the back of Corsi’s bike and I have gone to the ground. It is a pity, but now I am already thinking about next week’s CEV race, in which I will ride again the bike of the Targobank team with the one I run this championship, before going to Aragón with Blusens Avintia again”.
