Bulega takes one point at home, Pons suffers technical issue
Nicolò Bulega does his very best at his home track at Misano Adriatico and makes it into the top-15 despite a very challenging weekend. After starting from 19th place, the Italian put together a good comeback, despite some bruises and pains from yesterday’s crash.
A little point that gives some faith to the #11 rider of Team Federal Oil Gresini Moto2 even though it’s clear that the goals are very different and there will be a lot of work to do in order to get near the front in the series.
Edgar Pons is still enduring a difficult moment as he could not finish the sixth lap of this first of two Grand Prix on Italian soil. A technical problem forced him to an early retirement. A reset is needed before the start of the new racing weekend in five days still at Misano.
“A difficult race, but we struggled throughout the weekend. Yesterday’s crash didn’t help and Today I surely wasn’t 100% fit, but it’s clear that we have to do better and start from a more favourable position on the grid. Let’s keep our heads down and look forward to next weekend.”
“Obviously there is a lot of disappointment for team and sponsor, but we haven’t yet found the feeling we’d like with the bike and we’re working hard to make it. Unfortunately I had a problem with the bike which we’ll have to analyse, the goal is to grow quickly and we have a great opportunity already next week.”
