The podium missed by a nose! An unfortunate Qatar for Tony Arbolino who, starting from the 10th position on the grid, is the protagonist of a great recovery during the first laps of the Losail Grand Prix. Unfortunately on the last lap Tony is victim of a contact with the rider Binder and this compromises everything. From the first positions he is forced to go wide and closes the race in the 15th position.
The amazing comeback is that of Filip Salac, who, starting the 20th on the grid, goes back twelve positions, obtaining a precious eighth place.
The Snipers team is really satisfied with all the work that has allowed us to be competitive and always protagonists among the first positions. The bad luck component is the only element that has to be eliminated.
Here are the riders comments:
Arbolino: “A race not lucky for me. Anyway I’m satisfied with the way we worked, the bike was almost perfect and I felt very good. In the next races I’m sure I can still give my best.”
Salac: “I had to recover positions after not very good qualifying and we’ve done it. I’am happy of the result, an eighth place is important, but I’am not easily satisfied and I’am sure that I can improve further.”
