CORSI SAVED THE RACE ON LAST TURN.
The true main player of the Grand Prix of San Marino e Riviera di Rimini was the weather. After two days of dry sessions, the expected rain totally changed the track and race conditions by forcing teams and riders to change the bike setting already in the morning warm up. The race started in a mild rain that made the track slippery and riding conditions really difficult. The Speed Up rider Simone Corsi lost some starting position while Augusto Fernandez immediately recovered. Only 16 riders finished Moto2 race at the Marco Simoncelli circuit in Misano and among them Simone Corsi. The Roman rider, after a crash in the last turn, managed to save the race by getting up and arriving eighth at the finish.
SIMONE CORSI#24 - 8th
“It was a really long and hard battle. There was very little grip and the rain seemed to be getting stronger, for this reason a lot of us crashed. I’m sorry becauseI missed the fifth place right at the last turn, but I’m happy I finished eighth and earned 8 points in the overall standings.“
