Jaume Masia takes 2nd step of the podium in Austria, Dennis Foggia 20th
Jaume Masia has taken 2nd position at the Red Bull Ring after a very tough battle for the victory. Bad luck for teammate Dennis Foggia, who finished 20th.
It’s been a very positive weekend that has concluded with Jaume Masia on the second step of the podium! The Spaniard has taken his maiden rostrum position with the team, a super desired result. After the crash in Brno, the rider was determined on taking the best of this track and immediately felt good from Friday practice sessions. That made the team think that nice results were possible.
Today Jaume Masia wasn’t able to do the perfect start, but lap by lap has been pushing. From the moment he put himself in front, the young rider has been fighting for the lead most of the time. He’s been swapping positions and at the last lap he was first, but three corners left to the end, compatriot Arenas has overtaken him. In any case, a second position is a very good result that proves Masia’s adaptation and potential with his Honda. We expect that to be the first of many more!
The other side of the coin has been Dennis Foggia’s race. He hasn’t felt good from the beginning and has finally crossed the line the 20th.
After today’s result, Jaume Masia is the 8th on the standings (39 points) and Dennis Foggia occupies the 10th position (32 points). On its side, the Le0pard Racing is now the second on team’s classification (71 points, 37 far from the first).
Jaume Masia, 2nd
“I’m happy with this second position as it’s been a long time without podium results. Many thanks to the team for their job, this is very positive for the next races. I hope to continue like this”.
Dennis Foggia, 20th
“It hasn’t been the race that I expected, I haven’t had good feelings with the bike. I’ll keep working and I’ll try to be fighting with the front group next week”.
