QUARTARARO FLIES ON THE SECOND STEP OF THE DUTCH PODIUM
A race to remember for the LighTech-Speed Up Racing team’s rider Fabio Quartararo at the iconic Cathedral of Speed.
The young French had to give all he had to take a solid second place in a drama-filled Grand Prix of Netherlands. Quartararo took home his second podium in a row in a hard faught race. After Saturday’s qualifying, in which Fabio was seventh on the grid, he was penalized by three grid positions because he did not see the red flag during the session. Then he made a difficult start losing 2 positions that he was able to recover in only 2 laps. At lap 10 he overtook Pasini and Binder starting his comeback.
Teammate Danny Kent had another difficult race unfortunately crashing out of the race in turn 3, lap 1, he made an average start but entering turn 3 a rider tried to overtake him on the inside, touched him a little which caused him to run a little wide and losing the front end.
FABIO QUARTARARO#20 – 2nd
“I’m really satisfied, I did not expect it! We are working well from Le Mans race and the results are finally coming. I understood how to change my driving style and how to adapt to the Speed Up bike. We will keep working on this way for sure! I really thank everyone for supporting me. Can’t be more happy!”
DANNY KENT#52 – DNF
“Frustrated not to finish the race today, I’m sorry to my team once again because we deserve better, we started the weekend quite well, unfortunately having made a bad qualifying we made the job a lot harder for the race, I’m sure I was able to finish inside the point because the group from p12 to p14 was around the pace I was running all weekend, I will head home now, work hard and prepare from Sachsenring”.
