About
PHILLIP ISLAND

It’s the 30th birthday for the Australian GP, which was first held in 1989. Most of its races were set against the beautiful backdrop of the Phillip Island circuit, allowing spectators to breathe in the wonderment of the water as well as the excitement of the various classes battling it out on the track.

With its old school layout and beautiful ocean views, you can’t beat Phillip Island when it comes to taking spectacular pictures. Technical sections are strung together by incredible turns, and with an almost kilometer-long straight allowing the bikes to stretch their legs, it’s going to be slipstreaming towards the finish line in the smaller classes.

P9 for number nine at the Japanese GP. Although the result might suggest otherwise, Danilo is getting back into the groove to compete at the top end of the pack like he did prior to the summer break. Tire issues prevented him from finishing the Japanese GP further to the front, although coming out on top after various mid-pack battles built confidence for this weekend’s GP.

About this page

“I can’t be satisfied with my result, even though I fought hard in the race. Unfortunately, I struggled a lot in the early laps with the front tire, which was heating up too much. But when I managed to get it back down to the right temperature I started to lap with good times and I was fast in the final part of the race.

Something’s still missing for me to get back and race at the top, but I feel that I’m getting back to being close to my level at the start of the season. It’s clear that we must, and we want to do better and luckily Australia is only in one week’s time.”

There are still 75 points up for grabs, and although a 42-point deficit might look challenging, our Moto2 star, Augusto Fernández, has his eyes on the championship as long as it is still achievable. The Japanese GP didn’t go according to plan in that respect, but knowing Augusto, the fight is still on. Fellow REV’IT! rider in the intermediate class, Bo Bendsneyder, just came a few seconds short on adding more points to his tally, which will make him even more motivated for the Australian GP.

“Japan was a very hard race; I suffered a lot in a way I had not done for a long time. Race day was especially difficult, because although we qualified in the front row in P2, in the dry sessions, we did not find a good setting.

There are three races left and we must continue giving everything because the championship remains the goal! I want to thank, once again, the team who has worked very well on a complicated weekend and they keep pushing, just like me.”

MOTEGI RESULT: P16
CHAMPIONSHIP POSITION: P25

“I think we had a strong race in Japan. I had to come from far behind, but I managed to gain a lot in the first lap. There were quite a few crashes at the front, which shows that it was difficult to control the bike when braking hard and when entering the corners at the TwinRing.

It’s a shame that we were unable to score points because we were so close, but I am happy with how the race went. The team has worked hard – many thanks for that – and we have shown that we can be in a good position, so with this motivation, we’ll start the fight in Australia.”

What a race it was in Motegi! Like many races this year, Lorenzo Dalla Porta took control at the front, and like in Germany, he managed to grab the victory despite last lap lunges from his competitors. Jaume Masià was engaged in a battle for seventh in the second group, taking seventh after battling hard throughout the race.

“After missing Thailand, I wanted to get a good result in Japan for my comeback. My position on the grid wasn’t so good, but I managed to get into a good rhythm and fight in the second group.

I couldn’t catch McPhee in the end, but I came out on top in the fight for seventh after giving it my all. So, now it’s time to build upon this result at Phillip Island!”

About this page

“The victory in Japan was very important for me, and I was really looking for another win so it was a great timing to get it in Motegi. It shows that hard work pays off, and we never stop working as a team.

A big thank you goes to all the team, and we are more than motivated to get back to the front at Phillip Island again. Australia, here we go!”
