· David Muñoz, who was racing for the first time at this circuit, fought for victory until the chequered flag and finished third
· Ana Carrasco crashed in the early stages while gaining positions and was taken to hospital, where a broken tibia and fibula were confirme
BOÉ Motorsports has returned to the podium with David Muñoz after a weekend in which the team has been in great shape since the first practices. BOÉ Motorsports continues to prove that in every race it is a candidate for victory and, once again, David Muñoz confirms himself as one of the most promising riders in the Moto3 World Championship.
After a weekend in which Muñoz has been consistently in the top ten since the first practice on Friday, the team also worked hard on the pace for the race, something that has been demonstrated from the start. On the first lap, David gained four positions and stayed in the front group from this moment until the end. The Spanish rider fought all the way for the victory and finally crossed the chequered flag in third position, just one tenth of a second behind the winner.
Bad luck came on the side of Ana Carrasco. The rider from Murcia started the race really strong and showed a good step forward from Friday, but in the early stages of the race she crashed in turn ten. After this crash, Ana was taken to hospital and, after the first tests, a broken tibia and fibula were confirmed, although the extent of the injury is still being assessed.
David Muñoz:“The race was a bit crazy, for me and for the other riders, with a lot of overtaking in the front group. We saved some time at the beginning of the race to be able to have good tyres at the end, I think it was a good strategy and we did very well. I’m very happy with this podium, we keep adding good results to keep growing in the championship”.
Ana Carrasco:“First of all, I want to say that I feel good. I had a good start and I was feeling good, I had the pace to move forward although I had a scare at the front. At turn 10 I had a crash, the front of the bike closed and then I did a pretty nasty highside. At the moment it looks like I have a fracture in my tibia and fibula but we still have to confirm the severity, as well as a strong blow to my head, but I feel fine”.
The next Grand Prix will be held in Australia on the weekend of 21-22 October.
