Uncertain weather conditions from the morning onwards characterised a day on the track that gave, in any case, good ideas for next week’s races, again at the Red Bull Ring.
Sunday started with a heavy downpour at the Styria GP: wet conditions for the morning Warm Up where MV Agusta Forward Racing rider Lorenzo Baldassarri who was very comfortable on his F2 bike, placing just over a tenth from the Top 10, in 12th place.
Doubtful weather and threatening clouds also characterised the following hours, leaving uncertainty about track conditions for the race, which turned out to be dry.
Balda made a good start, recovering several positions.
In the first laps the fight with the opponents saw him losing contact with the points zone and this did not allow him to increase his recovery.
Balda finished the race in 21st position.
Now the team will try to take advantage of the next few days to prepare the next round in the best possible way and they will start again on the 13th August at the Red Bull Ring circuit for the Austrian Grand Prix, the eleventh round of the season.
“Today’s race was a bit special. It wasn’t easy at the beginning, but then I was able to recover several positions. It has been a weekend where we have tried a lot of solutions and today we found a set-up that I feel good in. It will be important to work again this week on the front end and on the speed ahead of next weekend here in Austria. I would like to thank all the guys for their work and I will see you next week.
