Encouraging debut for Alcoba at Red Bull Ring

11 Aug 2019

Jeremy Alcoba put together a good race performance in what was his debut under the Team Kömmerling Gresini Moto3 this weekend at the Red Bull Ring – on a new track for him. The Spaniard, who was called up from CEV to replace the currently injured Gabriel Rodrigo (who is recovering from collarbone and pelvic fractures), did not disappoint as he crossed the line in 18thplace – and then demoted to 21stfor exceeding track limits. Alcoba kept improving throughout the weekend and therefore leaves the Red Bull Ring in high spirits.

Not the same feeling for Riccardo Rossi, who was also making his debut at the Red Bull Ring. After an encouraging first day and a lot of motivation, the Italian ended up with a very different outcome than expected. The mixed conditions and a penalty (long lap) prevented him from finishing any higher than 23rd.

There is now one full week before battle resumes at Silverstone – with an eye on Rodrigo’s recovery from injury.
