Carlos Tatay has finished the race of the Qatar Grand Prix in 21st position. The Spaniard completed his first weekend as a Reale Avintia Racing rider and continued the process of learning and adaptation to the category in the first race of the calendar.

In yesterday’s qualifying, Tatay made a decent performance and in Q2, which qualified directly after the combined times of the free practices, he set the 17th best time, which allowed him to start from the sixth row of the grid.

After a good start, the Valencian rider has managed to reach the points zone, placing 15th during the first laps of the race. But unfortunately, Tatay’s pace was not enough to follow the lead group and, after an intense fight with the mid-table group for several laps, he managed to cross the finish line 21st, 8.4 seconds from the first position.

With the Qatar Grand Prix finished, the Reale Avintia Racing will continue with the intense work to arrive prepared to the next race, which will not be in the Thailand Grand Prix because, due to the coronavirus, it has been postponed to October.
