FRANCIA: GOOD PACE FOR FERRARI, 4th IN RACE 1. ANOTHER POINT FOR FINELLO

Race1 – #FrenchGP The opening race for team FELO Gresini Racing MotoE at Le Mans was a positive one, with Matteo Ferrari able to secure a fourth-place finish at the chequered flag. The rider #11 started the encounter from fourth place and, after a big moment in the opening lap, he got up to speed showing a great pace that allowed him to recover a couple of places and bag 13 important points for his title chase.

Alessio Finello had a good start to the race as he overtook a couple of riders at turn one. The lack of experience – and track-time – in the series and at this circuit for the rookie #72 surely didn’t help the Turin-born rider, who struggled to keep the pace in the following lap as he lost touch with the group ahead of him.

The point scored today is surely a boost of confidence for the Italian, who has another shot tomorrow at 15:30 local time (GMT +2) in race two.

4th – MATTEO FERRARI #11

“I’m happy with the save on the opening lap and at the same time disappointed, because we had a great pace and that allow me to recover some positions. I’m happy with the work we’re doing and how I rode, I’m very focused on improving my riding style in order to adapt it to the new tyres and I think we’ve done a great job, because I was able to be quick in the last laps. This is very important ahead of tomorrow: we will try to start as good as today, but with the goal to stay in touch with the leaders from the get-go. If things work out at the beginning, I think we can play our part in the battle for the win.”

15th – ALESSIO FINELLO #72

“It’s been a difficult race, especially in the first three laps as I struggled in finding the right confidence and be quick. I need to get used to this format without sessions before the race: I need to work a lot on it in order to find the right feeling straight away. I’m still happy that I was able to get a good start: I managed to overtake a couple of riders at turn one and stay with them on the opening lap. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to display the race pace I wanted, so I will work on it ahead of tomorrow’s race, which will likely be even faster.”
