Ayumu takes excellent podium finish at #AragonGP
The start of Ayumu at Aragon today was quite good, so much so that on the end of the first lap Ayumu kept his position. Soon a first group of three drivers was created, in which Ayumu was always present, a group that showed an incredible step right from the start. In fact already on the second lap all three got their best lap and in particular, on that occasion, the Japanese rider got the second fastest lap of the race, with a time of 1’57.967. Ayumu kept a very high pace throughout the race and never left the second position.
With three laps to go the group was reduced to just two riders, with Ayumu in the chasing position. In the last lap Ayumu lost a few tenth, crossing the finish line in second position. After the zero of the last race, the twenty points earned are fundamental for the world ranking of Ayumu, so this second place today is worth a lot.
AYUMU SASAKI :
“I am happy about today, because I think we gave the maximum, finishing in P2, even though I was expecting to fight for the win. I need to work a little bit more at the points where we lose something. The next race will be in my home grand prix. We need to improve, so we will work to do this and try to fight for the win in Japan.”
