SAN MARINO GP

+EGO SPEED UP

BITTERSWEET PODIUM FOR DI GIANNANTONIO AT SAN MARINO GP. NAVARRO TO REMOUNT IN SEVENTH POSITION.

+EGO Speed ​​Up team ended the Gran Premio di San Marino e della Riviera di RImini with a bittersweet podium for Fabio Di Giannantonio and Jorge Navarro’s comeback, seventh at the finish line. It is difficult to accept the decision of the race direction on the off-track of Fernandez a few turns from the end being aware that Fabio’s amazing race deserved the victory. Despite the decision, the Roman rookie climbed for the second time on the second step of the podium satisfied with his performance and aware of having given the maximum. Navarro made up for a tough weekend with a good comeback by crossing the line in seventh place. Eight positions recovered by Jorge who with a good start and a lot of determination managed to finish the race with nine fundamental points for the World Championship classification.

“I’m sorry for what happened today and I’m sorry about the decision made by the race direction. Let’s take the result that is, which in any case is excellent. We were very strong this weekend and the pole position took yesterday with today’s podium confirm it. A pity because it would have been nice to win after 24 laps leading the race. Let’s focus on next Gp in Aragon satisfied and aware of what we know and can do!”
JORGE NAVARRO#9 – 7th
“It was the most complicated weekend of my season, without a doubt. We made a radical change this morning in the warm that worked very well with this morning’s temperatures. But in the race the conditions changed and the feeling was not the same. Fortunately, I managed to start well and move forward in the first laps until I reached the fifth position, but I realized that I had neither the rhythm nor the feeling to continue driving as I was doing. I risked crashing twice and so I tried to keep up without risking too much. In the end, seventh, but for how this Grand Prix went I think it’s a positive result. Now let’s think about next race in Spain, Aragon, a track that I really like”.

 

FABIO DI GIANNANTONIO SEALS SUPERB POLE POSITION AT SAN MARINO GP

The pole position of the San Marino GP is all Italian. Fabio Di Giannantonio took his Speed ​​Up to the top of the Misano World Circuit starting grid and sealed the first pole position of his world career. That of Misano is not among the simplest weekends for Jorge Navarro who qualified fifteenth and will start from the fifth row in tomorrow’s race.

Since the first practice session on Friday, Di Giannantonio has proven to be competitive by concluding the third free practice sessions with the second best time in 1’37.802. In qualifying Fabio made no mistake and found his fastest lap at the end of the session, taking pole position.

Navarro struggled in the three free practices but he’s good at gaining direct access to Q2. In qualifying he did his best but couldn’t find the fastest lap and finished the race in fifteenth position. The Spaniard will use tomorrow’s warm-up to try new solutions at the rear. The goal will be to recover positions from the first laps and find a fast and steady rhythm that will allow him to gain ground.

“Great day today! I’m so happy for my first position! This morning I got on the track with the hard tyres and I had a great feeling, when I put on the soft tyres I didn’t expect to improve so much. In the afternoon I managed to take another step despite the fact that the lap was not perfect, I am really happy. It will be a tough race, but I think we’re there”.
JORGE NAVARRO#9 – 15th in 1’38.181
“I think it’s the most complicated weekend of this season. The technicians and I are really struggling to find the feeling of the previous weekends, but we will continue to work as we have always done. We will use tomorrow morning’s warm up to understand how to face the race to the best of our abilities”.

At Marco Simoncelli circuit in Misano Adriatico, the thirteenth round of the Moto2 World Championship season has been kicked off today.

Di Giannantonio closed the first day of free practice of the home Grand Prix with the third best time. It was a good day for the number twenty-one of the + EGO Speed ​​Up team, who, in both Friday practices was able to show determination and good pace finishing the day at only +0.138 from the first.

Jorge Navarro ended the first day in nineteenth position. Jorge and the team weren’t able to take full advantage of the second session to find a solution to the lack of rear grip but they are confident in tomorrow’s third and final free practice to improve the bike set-up and try to reach direct access to Q2.

FABIO DI GIANNANTONIO#21 – 3rd in 1’38.463
“I am really happy about this first day both for the result and for the Grand Prix itself, it is always exciting to return to this circuit mainly for the warmth of the people who make me feel right at home. Today we were fast with both hard and soft tyres. Tomorrow we will understand with which tyre to face the qualifying. We are very determined and excited!”
JORGE NAVARRO#9 – 19th in 1’39.084
“The truth is that it was not our best Friday, it was quite a complicated day. We could not find the right feeling to face the two sessions as we normally do. We didn’t have the right feeling in the front, but especially in the rear when I feel no grip in the middle of a turn when accelerating with some vibrations. Now we just have to understand how to solve these problems, we have enough time and determination to do it and come back as competitive as ever“.
