RIMONTA SENSAZIONALE DI FABIO DI GIANNANTONIO AL SUO PRIMO GRAN PREMIO IN MOTO2. NAVARRO CADE DOPO LA PARTENZA

Uno strepitoso Di Giannantonio termina il suo primo Gran Premio nella classe Moto2 all’undicesimo posto dopo una rimonta sensazionale. Il rookie romano, dopo aver perso parecchie posizioni in partenza, riesce a trovare il feeling necessario per guadagnare terreno. Sorpasso dopo sorpasso arriva alla zona punti e supera ogni aspettativa raggiungendo l’undicesima posizione.

Jorge Navarro invece balza dalla moto poco dopo la partenza a causa di una frenata improvvisa dovuta ad un incidente avvenuto a pochi metri da lui. Il pilota spagnolo dopo la brutta caduta ha riportato diverse contusioni e tre punti sul ginocchio destro, ma fortunatamente non sembra nulla di grave.

Il bilancio, nonostante la caduta di Navarro, è comunque positivo grazie al progresso raggiunto dai due piloti Speed Up nel corso del weekend. Il feeling con le Speed Up SF19T è di molto migliorato in questa prima gara e Jorge e Fabio sono pronti a continuare i miglioramenti raggiunti finora per poter essere più competitivi nel prossimo Gran Premio di Argentina.

JORGE NAVARRO#9 – non classificato
“Sono deluso ed arrabbiato perché non meritavamo di finire così questo gran premio per qualcosa che non si può controllare quando altri piloti ti cadono davanti. Ho provato a frenare appena ho visto quello che stava accadendo perché non avevo altra soluzione, ma ho bloccato la ruota posteriore, perso grip e son balzato in aria. Alla fine mi hanno dato tre punti al ginocchio destro, spero non sia nulla di grave. Farò ulteriori accertamenti appena arriverò a casa, ma ce la metterò tutta per ritornare al meglio per il Gran Premio di Argentina. È un peccato perché credo potevo stare tra i primi, ma dobbiamo guardare avanti e continuare a lottare!”
FABIO DI GIANNANTONIO#21 – 11°
“Contentissimo! Non mi aspettavo così la prima gara! Ho commesso un errore in partenza, ma alla fine sono riuscito a recuperare le posizioni perse e molte di più di quelle previste. Non mi aspettavo neanche di avere questo passo e invece più giravo più andavo forte quindi tutto benissimo! Con i ragazzi bene bene bene, abbiamo trovato la quadra per la gara che era fondamentale per prendere i punti. Quindi bene, più 5 sulla classifica generale!”

 

QUALIFYING: FORTH AND SEVENTH ROW FOR THE +EGO SPEED UP TEAM’S RIDERS

The +EGO Speed ​​Up team’s riders, Jorge Navarro and Fabio Di Giannantonio, are determined to achieve positive results in the opening round of the Moto2 World Championship to be held under the spotlight of Losail International circuit at 6:20 pm (local time), in Qatar.

Today, for the first time, the Moto2 class faced the double qualification as the MotoGP class. Jorge Navarro reached the direct access to the Q2 thanks to the sixth time of the combined free practice. It was a qualifying little bit difficult for the number nine of the team that placed twelfth and will start tomorrow from the fourth row. Unfortunately, the feeling was not the same as the previous days and the wind made the driving conditions more difficult than usual, but in the race everything can change and he is determined to do so.

Di Giannantonio instead has faced the Q1 after the twenty-first time got in the combined free practice. The young rookie had almost made it to gain access to the Q2 to then fight for the pole with the fastest, but the fastest lap of his qualifying was eliminated for having passed the kerb. Fabio will start the race from the seventh row in nineteenth position determined to recover as much positions as possibile.

JORGE NAVARRO#9 – 12th in 1’59.325
“Today we continued to work according to how we had planned. In the fp3 there were not the right conditions to try and we could not get good solutions. Even in qualifying, unfortunately I could not give my best because of the strong wind that made the driving definitely more unstable. I’m not at all happy but we have to look ahead because we have had a good pace throughout the week and tomorrow in the race we can be competitive!”
FABIO DI GIANNANTONIO#21 – 19th in 1’59.754
“Overall good! Compared to yesterday we improved a lot, increasing above all the feeling with the bike. In Q1 we did two good laps only that the lap that brought us the Q2 was eliminated cause out of the allowed area. Tomorrow we can have a good race, we will certainly use the warm up to try to improve a bit more. The goal is to make points and then I’ll do it all”.

 

NAVARRO AND DI GIANNANTONIO AT WORK IN THE FIRST DAY OF FREE PRACTICE SESSIONS AT THE LOSAIL CIRCUIT

The first day of free practice of the first Grand Prix of the 2019 Moto2 World Championship has just come to an end. The +EGO Speed ​​Up team staff is excited for the new season that even this year will touch 19 circuits in 15 countries of the world.

The first session of the Grand Prix of Qatar took place under a bright sun with the asphalt temperature reaching 39 degrees. In the second round the sun went down, bringing the temperature down to 22 degrees. Navarro wasted no time, and already from the first practice he pointed out his competitiveness. At the end of the day he placed sixth with a gap of only four tenths from the first.

On the other side of the box, Fabio Di Giannantonio and his technical staff focused on bike setting by trying different solutions. He finished the first day twenty-first with a good margin for improvement.

JORGE NAVARRO#9 – 6th in 1’59.036
It was a positive day. We were immediately competitive even if I made a small mistake a few laps from the beginning and I slipped for the little feeling. In fp2 we started with the rear tire used to see how much grip we had and I must say that I had very positive feelings both on grip and on the pace. We have to improve in T1 which is the sector in which we lose more time and we must therefore understand what we are wrong, but in general it went well
FABIO DI GIANNANTONIO#21 – 21st in 1’59.831
“First day not exactly as I expected because after the tests of the last I expected to leave better. We are trying a bit ‘of things, especially on the engine brake and power. There is still a lot of work to do but I remain positive because we still have some time to do well from tomorrow”.
