About the
rED BULL RING

Formerly known as the “A1 Ring,” the Austrian track received numerous updates early this century to comply with modern safety requirements. With its original layout dating back to 1969, the track has been the backdrop for incredible races on two and four wheels.

Since it’s rebirth as the “Red Bull Ring” in 2011, it took until 2016 before MotoGP made its reappearance – making Mick Doohan’s victory at the old track in 1997 a thing of the past. Fast straights, tight turns, and altitude changes all make up for this spectacular track on the MotoGP agenda.

Danilo Petrucci had high hopes for Brno, but limited grip and quickly deteriorating tires meant he had to settle for P8. Keeping his cool in these kind of situations means he has now finished all races of the season. He stands his ground at P3 in the championship. Coming to a Ducati-favorite track like the Red Bull Ring means motivation is quickly restored, ready to fight at the front again.

About this page

“For sure Brno was the most difficult race of the year for me. I missed out on being able to lap in the dry on Saturday, because already on Friday, I was struggling a bit at this circuit. The race was tough because right from the start, I didn’t have much grip.

The leaders went away immediately, and then it was also difficult to fight with the others because in the final stages, I had finished the tires. A pity, because Rins made up a few points on me in the standings even though I’m still in third, but luckily on Monday, we had an entire day of testing to understand what to improve.”

Mixed conditions interfered with proceedings for the Moto2 boys, which shook up the order prior to qualifying. High hopes for Bo Bendsneyder-  starting from P8 on the grid -unfortunately didn’t come with the desired award, while Augusto Fernández had to settle for a spot outside of the podium while keeping himself at the sharp end of the championship standings. With the save of the century behind his name, Steven Odendaal was the center of attention early in the weekend, but is looking to put himself in the spotlight in a different way at the Red Bull Ring.

About this page

“It was a very hard race. After the first laps, I lost a lot of positions and it was hard for me to find a good pace and recover positions and I didn’t have much more than the other riders. 

I arrived eighth but I could not recover the distance with the group in front, which was the podium. The important thing is that in a bad race we continue to score points and we are third in the championship. Now it’s time to go to Austria.”

About this page

“I have to apologize to the team for a start and a first lap that were so bad that I was more or less out of contention from the beginning. I lost way too many places and made it very difficult for myself.  

I did not feel well on the bike and lost a lot of time when braking into the corners. As a result, it was not possible to catch up. It wasn’t good, but this is a motivation to keep fighting and to show next time that we can really do much better.”

“I’m a bit upset with the result. My start was quite good, but I didn’t have the pace to do much with it. We now move on to Austria and hopefully we can find a solution to get better results over there.”

A near double podium again for our Moto3 boys. Tight as always, the race once again went down to the wire with Lorenzo Dalla Porta keeping his cool to take second on the podium; knowing the season isn’t over by a long stretch. With Jaume Masià on a late charge to the front, we were just denied a double REV’IT! podium as he managed to grab a solid fourth at the finish line.

About this page

“What can I say? I am happy with the result, as fourth is not bad, but I am not 100% satisfied because I was looking for more. However, after the last three races that didn’t go as planned I feel like this is a great welcome back after the summer break. 

There are still a lot of races, so I will keep pushing. Thanks to my team, looking forward to going to Austria again!”

About this page

“The result of the race is a nice way to start the second half of the season. Saturday was very difficult, and starting from 17th position on the grid didn’t make things easier for us. 

However, to fight for the win from that position is very positive and I am happy with second place in the end. We will try to do one better again in Austria!”
