The Spanish team has now finished five races in the top five after seven GPs

The Italian Grand Prix was once again very positive for BOÉ Motorsports. Despite a difficult start, both David Muñoz and Joel Kelso went from strength to strength from Friday and were able to complete a very creditable race. 

After the start, both Joel and David tried to position themselves with the front group, but on the fourth lap a crash forced the race direction to show the red flag, a moment in which Muñoz was seventh and Kelso tenth.

With the race neutralised, the Moto3 riders had to face another restart and the race distance was reduced to eleven laps. On this occasion, David Muñoz was in the fight for the podium positions from the start and was finally fifth after an intense fight in the leading group, while Joel Kelso was twelfth and again scored important points for the championship.

With these results, David Muñoz is fifth in the overall Moto3 standings with 60 points and Joel Kelso is seventh with 46 points. In the team standings, BOÉ Motorsports is fifth in the Moto3 World Championship with 106 points.

David Muñoz: “We are happy with the result of the race, we got some good points for the championship, but we still have to keep working on the details. We know we have the speed to be at the front every race, and we are there, but we have to keep working. Now during the short break we have to take advantage of the time we have to keep training to be as prepared as possible for the next race. The team has done a great job, thank you very much to everyone”.

Joel Kelso:“I felt comfortable all weekend on the medium tyre. The start was a bit crazy, I lost a few positions, but we were doing good lap times and I started to move forward. However, as the laps went by I started to suffer with the tyre. I was struggling to overtake and to stop the bike, and it’s a shame to end the weekend like that because we had worked so hard during all the sessions. It wasn’t the fault of the set-up of the bike, I suffered with the tyres. Now it’s time to keep working and think about Assen”.

The next Grand Prix will be held from 28 to 30 June at the Assen circuit.
