By totalmotorcycle TOUGH #SACHSENRING $MotoGP™ RACE FOR $SUZUKI @ECSTAR
Team Suzuki Press Office – July 17.
Team SUZUKI ECSTAR’s Maverick Viñales and Aleix Espargaró scored in the points at today’s drama-packed German MotoGP™ World Championship ninth round at Sachsenring that saw both wet-and-dry conditions and a necessary pit-stop with nine laps to go to change to softer tyres when the racing-line dried-out. The end of the race saw Viñales in 12th place and Espargaró in 14th.
Both Spaniards had decent jumps on their GSX-RRs in the wet start from their second and third-row grid positions, but gradually lost places as the race progressed. But, in the middle of the 30-lap race, they began to climb-back through the field. They both made a pit-stop to change the bikes from ‘wet’ set-up to ‘dry’ before the two-thirds race distance, but could not quite get back the positions they lost before the chequered flag.
Team SUZUKI ECSTAR will now move to Spielberg, Austria, for a two-days of testing on Tuesday and Wednesday, as a preparation for the race that will be held there in August.
