Very tricky race today at Spielberg on the Red Bull Ring, where the Trentino Gresini MotoE Team faced a "sprint race" of 5 with the track in damp conditions due to the rain before the race.
Matteo Ferrari started well from seventh position and fought with Smith, Gibernau and De Angeli to play for the third step of the podium. Beautiful overtaking and counter-overtaking of Ferrari with Sete Giberanu. Due to an error at the 3 corner, the Rimini rider lost some positions, but in the final part of the race, Ferrari recovered well until closing at the 5º place.
Good race also for Lorenzo Savadori which, after the crash at the Sachsenring, closed the race in 10 position showing a clear improvement of the feeling with the MotoE . Savadori can now look forward to the next event in a month at Misano, a track that he knows very well.
Under the comments of the two pilots.
"I was good and lucky because I risked so much at turn three and ended up an inch from the gravel. A mistake that didn't allow me to race for the podium but it was still a positive race for us in difficult conditions that we had never faced. "
“All in all it wasn't a bad race. With so few laps and starting back it was difficult to recover. On the straight a gap is immediately created which then becomes difficult to fill without a wake. The top 10 is a good result on which we will try to build the next appointments. "
