Disappointment for Antonelli and Tatay with double DNF at the #FrenchGP
Niccolò Antonelli, despite trying, cannot finish the race after suffering a fall when he was leading the Moto3 race. In the Warm Up he also suffered another fall as soon as he started, the rain left track conditions that have not favored him at all.
Carlos Tatay also loses control of his KTM on the grid formation lap, forcing him to go through Pit Lane so that his mechanics could repair his bike and finally be able to start in last position. But finally he is forced to abandon the race due to problems with the bike.
A weekend quite complicated due to the weather conditions, at the end of the race I fell leaving the Pit Lane without having done anything comparing telemetry, we have seen that it was even slower than in previous rounds leaving the Pit Lane, but they are things that happen, bad luck, the bike was badly damaged and I had to go out with the steering damper bent so I couldn’t finish the race, I couldn’t ride like that and I had to enter the Pit Lane. Now focused on Mugello in the Barcelona tests that we have next week and he has to work hard for the next one.
Today the race ended early for us. It seemed good to me. I tried to push hard and distance myself from the one behind because I saw that I felt good, but he suffered a strange and unfortunate fall in the last corner, starting with the bike practically straight. We are still strong so we hope to be ahead in the next race.
