Enea Bastianini’s race weekend was nothing special. The Avintia Racing team driver finished the Germany GP in 16th place, missed the chance for one point for 15th place. This point was brought home by his boxing colleague Luca Marini.
“It didn’t go the way I wanted, I didn’t get a single point. I’m a bit sad. I’ve suffered a lot in the corners all weekend and I’m disappointed because I was pretty quick the rest of the track. We have to understand why and for this I will look closely at the data. It went like this today ”.
What does it mean to lose three starting positions on such a tight track?
“A little, also because we have to understand why I start well and then, when I put second gear, drive backwards. It would have been great to be further up front, maybe I could have set a good pace. I was slow in T2 while I was fast the rest of the track. Without this sector, I would have been able to keep up much further ahead. “
What did you think after the sentence?
“I was upset because I didn’t do anything. I hit the track and drove a nice lap, then I lost it in the back. I saw Lecuona and Binder come and let them pass, then I started lapping again. Danilo caught me on this lap, but I was in the lap. Then downhill he passed me so I don’t think I bothered him that much. His reaction was exaggerated, I think he needs to find some calm. It seems that he has been sleeping since the beginning of the season ”.
Race Direction was more responsive this week. Does it appear that, on the contrary, they exaggerated?
“Yeah right. Instead of Q1 where I was punished, I would watch Q2. Everyone stopped to wait, it’s true that the MotoGP regulations don’t dictate anything compared to what I’ve done.
What do you expect for the next race?
“Assen is a track that I really like, I want to get a good result. It’s one of my favorite songs, if not the best. “
Many drivers admitted that they dropped Marc Marquez here as the winner before the weekend. Did you think that too?
“Yes sir. I was expecting it because Marquez seems unbeatable on this track. I definitely expected him to get on the podium. I thought he wasn’t ready to win, but apparently he was. “
