CATALAN GP RACE
Forced to take a long lap penalty, Baldassarri loses positions and finishes 23rd.
The seventh round of the season has just concluded at the Circuit de Catalunya for the rider of the MV Agusta Forward Racing team, who started from the eighth row of the grid.
After a start of the day that seemed to predict rain, the sky has opened, making way for a warm sun that recorded 28 ° C air and 44 ° C tarmac, with a humidity rate of 42%.
Lorenzo Baldassarri was on track today with essentially one practice session less, due to the crash on the first lap of FP3.
“Let’s say that the weekend was uphill from FP3 onwards. I didn’t have a bad start in the race today, but I had some contact with another rider which caused me to lose time and positions. At turn 7 I went long to avoid another rider and the log lap penalty compromised the improvements I was trying to make. Anyway, it was important to finish the race, which allowed the team to collect important data for the next GPs”.
