It was an interesting race for Jorge Martin, who bravely chose after warm-up to get back to the pits to change tyres in order to start the race with slicks – albeit from the back of the grid. The strategy, however, did not pay off because despite a streak of quick laps, the Spaniard was only 11th at the flag (after recovering 17 positions) while scoring some important points for the title race.

After two rounds, Martin and Diggia are currently second and fourth, respectively, with only four points between them, while Team Del Conca Gresini Moto3 remain on top of the team standings with 56 points.

Jorge Martin:

“It’s been a complicated day. We chose to change tyres on the pit-lane and we lost a lot of time, but we were competitive and so I managed to recover many positions. If we chose the slicks on the grid I would have probably won with a big margin but these things happen. We won’t get it wrong in Austin.”
