IT’S ALONSHOW AT THE ARGENTINA GRAND PRIX
NHK Helmet – Alonso López takes the BETA TOOLS SpeedUp team to the second step of the podium at the Grand Prix of Argentina, concluding an excellent weekend, while Aldeguer crosses the line fifteenth.
At the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit is AlonShow; the number 21 is back to show with a race as a protagonist.
Not a perfect start from the pole in which Alonso lost four positions but very cleverly recovered in a short time and was already in the lead on the second lap. Despite the difficult track conditions, López maintained the first position with Arbolino and Dixon on his heels until three laps from the end in which Arbolino managed to find space and took first place. Alonso stayed behind him, but with the wet track he decided not to take too many risks, finishing the race with a second place that is worth a lot.
For Fermín a very difficult start to the race conditioned by a subdued start and the loss of many positions, twenty-third at the end of the first lap. The sensations on his Boscoscuro bike didn’t give him the confidence to overtake at first until the number 54 found a good race pace that allowed him to recover multiple positions arriving fifteenth at the Argentine finish line.
ALONSO LÓPEZ #21: 2nd
“I didn’t expect such a race! I’ve always been fast in the wet in Moto2, but I have to say that it has always cost me a lot. Today, as soon as I was able, I took the lead of the group setting my pace, but with a wet track it was very difficult to brake in some points. Second place is worth gold to me after the crash in Portimão, even though I know for sure that without that mistake we could have won!”.
