Enea Bastianini was one of the riders who stood out the most in MotoGP this year. So far in this debut season, the Italian has already taken two podiums and set the goal for tenth place in Portimão. However, the driver crossed the finish line in ninth place after finishing a race with problems keeping up with the other drivers.
‘To be honest, the expectation for today [yesterday] should end up in the top ten. It wasn’t exactly the position he wanted to land in, as he was hoping to land higher. I’ve been working all weekend to get there and improve, but unfortunately I couldn’t make it. In the race I had great difficulties and despite the problems I was able to drive a very good race pace. It’s a shame that he lost contact with the leading drivers in the early stages, but I couldn’t push anymore, ‘said the driver, who was quoted by GPOne.
When asked what he thinks about the contact between Darryn Binder and Dennis Foggia that put an end to the Italian’s hopes of winning the title, Bastianini was very critical and said that what happened cannot be seen in MotoGP.
“I think that’s a stupid mistake, especially when the driver overtakes – actually he wanted to overtake two – is fighting for the world championship. It was a scene not worthy of MotoGP. What scares me the most is that he will ride with us next year, ”he explained.
It should be noted that Darryn Binder will make the leap into MotoGP with the colors of the WithU Yamaha RNF MotoGP Racing, the current Petronas Yamaha SRT. By skipping Moto2, Brad Binder’s brother will replicate Jack Miller’s feat when he entered MotoGP in 2015.
