We were sure that Termas de Rio Hondo circuit could be the right chance for the Snipers Team riders to aim for a better result. And so it was!
First podium in career for Tony Arbolino at Termas de Rio Hondo circuit! The rider from Garbagnate, starting from the third position on the grid, fought for the whole race, one overtaking after the other. A well-deserved result that Tony has been waiting for several races.
Difficult race for Romano Fenati who is out today from the point zone. There are still 17 races and Romano will be for sure a protagonist of this championship but his season has still to start!
Here are the riders comments :
Tony Arbolino: “I am very happy for this podium, I have been waiting it for a long time and today I was feeling good. We worked well for the whole weekend and after Qatar, which was a difficult race for me, I worked hard. At the last lap when I have been overtaken, I thought for a moment that everything was lost but then I braked hard, opened the gas and got the podium,. I thank the team for the work done and even Romano as, after Qatar, he helped me a lot”.
Romano Fenati: “It was a quite difficult weekend. Yesterday I was feeling good as we solved braking problems and we did a good qualifying. In the first two laps the front closed in a couple of occasions in a strange way and this compromised my race. We’ll do better for sure in Texas”.
Next appointment with Moto 3 in Austin, Texas (USA) on April 14th at the Circuit of the Americas.
