MARTIN BACK IN THE LEAD AFTER WINNING #AMERICASGP MOTO3 RACE

Jorge Martin has literally dominated the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas and, after the excellent pole position secured yesterday, he scored his second win of the season, the third in four races by counting in last year’s season finale at Valencia.

The Spanish rider of Team Del Conca Gresini made the right tyre choice today as he was one of the few to select the harder rear compound. After struggling a bit at the beginning – despite staying near the front – he unleashed all his potential in the final stages of the race and crossed the line with one and a half second margin over second position.

It was a great race also for Fabio Di Giannantonio, who even led the race for a while before making a mistake at turn 11, which made him drop down to fifth. Despite the setback, the Italian tried to do his utmost to get a top-3 finish but had to give up on his podium hopes at the last turned as he finished the encounter only 0.074 seconds from third place.

Courtesy of today’s win, Martin and Team Del Conca Gresini Moto3 return on top of the championship standings with 55 points – with Diggia 18 points behind in fourth. In the team standings, the Gresini team leads with 92 points and 31 over second position.

1st – JORGE MARTIN #88

“The race was very hard at the beginning because I opted for the hard tyre. I did well in staying calm and avoiding any danger at the beginning, but then with five laps to go I gave 100% and try to pull away while setting my pace. It wasn’t easy because Bastianini was coming in strong, but today I felt untouchable. I would like to thank the team for giving me a perfect bike!”

5th – FABIO DI GIANNANTONIO #21

“Today was so and so. We chose the medium tyre and towards the end of the race I had no more grip. It’s a shame, because we showed great speed throughout the weekend and we wanted to battle for the win. I hope this will come at Jerez”.
