It was a difficult race for Jorge Martin, whose performance might been affected by a not perfectly-performing tyre. The Spaniard could not join the battle for the win in the latter stages of the race and had to ride defensively to maintain his fourth place – even though he was only four tenths away from the winner at the flag.
Both Del Conca Gresini Moto3 riders will enjoy a two-week break before leaving to Japan for the first of three fly-away races. The goal will be to keep challenging for third place in the standings – which is now 36 points away from Di Giannantonio.
4th – Jorge Martin #88“I got a great launch and tried to push, but Enea (Bastianini) was able to challenge me but I have to be honest: I didn’t have the right feeling, surely not the right one to be able to pull away. I didn’t have a good feeling with the rear tyre right from the start, so I think it wasn’t possible to do any better than fourth. Now we will try to find out what happened with the tyres but we’re still up there near the front, so that’s the most important thing.”
