Many emotions with FPS Automation, at Mugello as a partner of the Team Kömmerling Gresini Moto3.
The disappointment is big as Gabriel Rodrigo was among the protagonists in this first of two Italian events in the season: always fast in free practice, he was second in qualifying and then great at the start of the Moto3 encounter.
Rodrigo’s race did not last too long, however: after five laps, the Argentine rider lost the front while entering turn 4; he escaped uninjured, but the #19 still lost a great opportunity to get closer to the top of the standings as he is now tenth with 37 points – 46 points away from the leader.
It was an important weekend for Ricardo Rossi: his 21stposition at the chequered flag does not give justice to the Italian’s performance, as the young rookie was battling for what would have been his first championship point within a group of six riders. One slightly-too-aggressive overtaking manoeuvre forced him wide at turn one and that took him out of contention for the top-15.
The next appointment is for the weekend of June 14, 15 and 16 in Spain.
