Stefano made a good start, kept high his fighting spirit throughout the race to stay there and fight for points area. I’m happy with how the team worked this weekend, there are still a few steps to go and we’ll continue at Silverstone on this path. As far as Isaac is concerned, this weekend has been a kind of test for him: he made the first kilometers with the bike and he’s inserting himself positively in the team. Thanks to the sponsors who have given us support and company this weekend.”

Stefano Manzi - DNF
“Today’s start was pretty quick and I immediately gained a few positions, but unfortunately due to a contact with another rider between turns 2 and 3 I lost ground again. I tried to recover, even if with difficulty, but I was always slow in the straight and, when I was fighting for an overtaking, I arrived too fast and I fell into the gravel. We hope it will be better next weekend in Austria”.
