The Le Mans race took place in a difficult weekend for the Nolan Group riders. Out Alex Rins during a good race, and out even Alonso Lopez. For Canet, not even the start, due to an injury.
But Petrucci, the winner of a 100% dominated race, has equalized everything.
Our rider, a specialist in the wet, has put the best in line, taking home his second career victory.
MotoGP is not over. 4 Spanish events await us in Aragon and Valencia. You know what? We are confident, and you?
DANILO PETRUCCI: 1st
"It was an incredible race. As of this morning, I knew I could have done a good performance with the dry conditions, but when I saw the rain on the grid, I knew it was going to be a difficult race. I thought I had nothing to lose and that maybe, I could be equally strong even in the wet. In the past, I had managed to get podiums in those conditions, but never a win. I've waited a long time before getting back on the top step of the podium, and it's nice to do it here at Le Mans, a track where I've got some good results in the past. I want to dedicate this win to all the people who have continued to believe in me even in this difficult time."
ALEX RINS: NQ
"It was unfortunate to have that crash, but I’m actually feeling OK because there were a lot of positives today; I managed the pressure of the race delay and the bad grid position, and I felt very comfortable on the bike. I recovered a lot of positions and a lot of time and I was feeling good up with the leading group. I did a double over-take on the Ducatis and it felt incredible! But in the end I had a crash and couldn’t get the podium. Anyway, Aragon is like another home race for me so I’m happy to go there and I hope for a better qualifying!"
