An excellent start in the first Grand Prix of 2020 for the Kömmerling Gresini Moto3 Team, which we are supporting with our brand this year too. Both drivers, Alcoba and Rodrigo, entered the top 6, despite qualifying with some difficulties.
Gabriel Rodrigo was fifth at the chequered flag. After solving the chattering issues that hindered his performance in the previous two days, the Argentine rode a smart race as he kept himself in the back of the pack for the whole encounter before beginning his charge to the front with three laps left. Rodrigo led the penultimate lap of the race #QatarGP, but as the riders crossed the line for the 17thtime he was passed by several opponents and was unable to battle for the win in the final metres of the race.
Jeremy Alcoba’s race was a lot more eventful. Following a good start that catapulted him in the top ten, the Catalan rider dropped down to 14thplace due to a mistake and then even further down to 19thafter a collision with Vietti. Alcoba managed to stay focused, however, and make his way back to sixth at the line.
Unfortunately both Kömmerling Gresini Moto3 received an after-race penalisation of one position as they exceeded track limits during the final lap. The final result is this: Rodrigo 6thand Alcoba 7th.
