Ayumu in the points at #AragonGP
Starting today’s #AragonGP from P18 on the grid, Red Bull KTM Tech3’s Ayumu Sasaki came off the line well, making up two positions immediately. With strong lap times in the first half of the race, he moved further ahead until he arrived in the second group, where he fought until the line to eventually see the chequered flag in 13th.
“It was a difficult race. We made a good start and we had a good pace in the beginning. I could gain some positions, was catching and was even in P10. I knew in the beginning of the race, that the tyre would drop, so I didn’t push too much, I was keeping calm. In the end, some riders passed me and for me it was frustrating. We could have been much stronger, I need to manage the tyre better next race. I learned from it today and I know, I can improve as well. It’s still a pity, as I know we could have done better today. Anyway, we finished inside the points, which is important.”
