Ayumu finishes 13th in chaotic Grand Prix of the Americas
Ayumu Sasaki was with the leading group in Sunday’s Americas GP contested at COTA in Austin, although he had to start from P14 on the grid. He kept his head down to stay in this position and was even fighting closer and closer towards the top 10. When the race was red flagged, the Japanese found himself in P13, taking home useful points from the US.
“It has been a crazy race, two red flags. In the Moto3 this year has been very dangerous in general, starting from Mugello, Barcelona, all these races. I think we need to find a way to respect each other and to race cleaner, which is the most important thing. In the end, the results today don’t matter, because we didn’t finish the race. This is not the result we wanted, but it’s like this. I think we should all sit down and everybody should try to ride cleaner, do better racing. That’s the goal we are looking for, I think and the thing we have to do after today.”
