Le Mans – A race to enjoy
Augusto has done it again in the Le Mans Grand Prix. He got on the podium again. But not without some difficulties. Although the first times were very good, a technical problem during the final qualifying rating put him to the middle of the grid for Sunday’s start.
From the P14, and making a very smart start to save the problems of crowding in the first corners, he climbed positions. During the first third of the race, we’d like to highlight his fight with Vierge. Despite not being 100% recovered Augusto continued to progress until reaching the head group. From Marquez, who had made enough distance to not be passable, the second and the third places were in the hands of Navarro and Augusto. His fight was very spirited and above all very exciting until the end.
After Le Mans, the lead of the Championship is only 32 points from Augusto.
“I’m very happy to get another podium and even more because we started from P14. I knew to keep calm and consolidate each overtaking until I reached the group in front. Finally I wanted to secure another podium because I had damaged a lot the tires going up and I was very close to the limit. Thanks to the team for the hard work!”
