The third race of the Moto GP world championship brought the circus to the Czech Republic, looking for some refreshment and finding, instead, almost the same Spanish heat.
Our guys did their best, as always, even if the weekend was once again uphill for Rins, recovering from his shoulder injury, and for Petrucci, who is still working to make his Ducati competitive. .
Still an apprenticeship, however, for Canet, who hits a top ten in Moto2. The Spanish rider is destined to grow, and it shows!
What happens now, to the calendar?
The km from Brno are few, because the prototype world championship moves to Austria for the double round of the Red Bull Ring.

ALEX RINS 4th
"I decided not to ride in the morning Warm-Up, except for making a practice start, in order to conserve my shoulder as much as possible. In the race I still felt pain and it was very tough, but I tried to get a good start and I remained focused on the job. Lap by lap I got into a stronger rhythm, even as the tyre life started to drop off. I was determined to get the best position possible, and with this fourth I take a lot of points. The lack of power in my body made it harder to pass my rivals, and I got very close to the podium but I couldn’t quite do the overtake. Anyway, I’m satisfied with the result and the work done."
DANILO PETRUCCI 12th
"We knew it was going to be a tough Sunday, but I didn't expect to be that slow at the beginning. Unfortunately, I suffered a lot from the lack of grip, a problem that we've had all weekend. I struggled so much to keep a good pace throughout the race. Today I put it all into it without being able to get a good result, so now we have to look forward. Luckily, next week we will already have a chance to redeem ourselves, as we will be racing again in Austria."
ARON CANET 10 th
“I started from fifteenth position and at the start I was unable to recover positions, so I had to come back carefully. I've made it to the top 10 step by step, but Syahrin was able to overtake Schrotter faster than me. It has taken me more, because we have been overtaking each other and we have wasted time. By the time I was able to push it was late, my tyres had already lost performance and I didn't have enough pace to get to the lead. We finish in tenth position, we continue learning and little by little we are maintaining the same line.”
