Third podium in a row for Ayumu at #ThaiGP
The spoils of these last three consecutive races for Ayumu is simply impressive. In fact, in the last three races Ayumu got two seconds and a third place, thus reaching eight podiums total. It’s a world-class roadmap, in fact only the blindfolded goddess has taken away the opportunity to fight for the final victory of the world championship. Even today Ayumu had a perfect race reading. After passing fourth at the first corner, after a few meters he recovered the second position. Soon a small group of four drivers, of which he was one, took a fair distance from the rest of the group.
In the rest of the laps Ayumu has always defended with great force his second position, but he did not have the necessary momentum to overcome the leader of the race. On few occasions he found himself in front of him and this happened for a few meters. Today the second place was the best possible result, and, in this perspective, it was great to defend the second position at the last corner of the last lap, when with a perfect trajectory he resumed the position, passing the finish line solo. There are still three races before the end of the championship, including the next in Australia.
AYUMU SASAKI :
“I am happy with the race today, I managed to finish on the podium again and it is three races in a row. I am very happy, but it was not enough for a win today, but I did my best and finished second. We know what we are lacking and we know where we have to improve to win the race. We have three more races to try to win, so I will keep focusing, I will keep trying, and can’t wait to ride in Australia after three years.”
