RODRIGO OUT AS ROSSI SCORES ONE POINT ON COMEBACK    

A very challenging three-race, fly-away trip draws to a close for Team Kömmerling Gresini Moto3 who, despite a promising weekend between free practice and qualifying in Malaysia, leaves Sepang almost empty-handed as Gabri Rodrigo is out of the race after few laps and Riccardo Rossi is 15th. The point taken by the Italian is the only one scored by the team in the last three Grand Prix (Motegi, Phillip Island and Sepang), which is a very poor and hard-to-digest reward.

There is not much to say on today’s race, with Gabri Rodrigo able to get a good start but out of the race straight afterwards after a mistake at turn four, a corner that has not been kind to him throughout the weekend. Riccardo surely had a good comeback, forced by a nightmare qualifying.

There are pride and results and to recover and there will be one more chance to do so in Valencia in less than to weeks as the traditional season finale gets underway.

15th– RICCARDO ROSSI #54

“It was a good comeback and maybe we could have done a little bit better, because I had a good start but then I lost time at turn one with all that traffic. We had a good pace and we were consistent, so we claimed that point. I must say that it was even harder physically, because they forgot to put water in my leathers, and I completed the race with no way to hydrate myself.”

DNF GABRI RODRIGO #19

“I had a great feeling in the warm up and I knew I could do very well. I was near the front: on one side I wanted to save some energy for the final part of the race, because I was aware of the fact that it was going to be a very physical race – and on the other side I wanted to avoid any drama with other riders. This time, however, it was my mistake, at a corner that had made me struggle the whole weekened – and that today I was unable to manage. I would like to apologise to the team because they needed a result after all the good work done.”
