MotoGP GP of Germany – Sachsenring
The German Grand Prix didn’t bring the desired results for Reale Avintia Racing Team, with their riders Tito Rabat and Xavier Simeon finishing in 13th and 19th position.
For Rabat, the race was like a lottery, because after struggling with grip problems throughout the weekend, he came up with a completely new set-up on Sunday. The change was for the better and he was able to fight within the point rankings for the whole race, after starting from 19th place of the grid.
Xavi Simeon hoped to have the pace to fight with Lüthi, Abraham and the riders who were right in front of him on the grid. On the first laps he did so, but after only five laps he lost contact and was left riding alone. The Belgian hopes to turn the situation around in the next races to come.
Reale Avintia Racing team will now travel to Misano to attend the WDW (World Ducati Weekend) where they will meet thousands of ‘Ducatisti’ in an incredible weekend. Afterwards, they will take a week off before heading to Brno, stage of the Czech Republic GP from August 3 to 5.
“I had a complicated weekend, with many problems with the grip of the tyres. We changed the bike at the last minute for the race, in which we have done well and picked up a couple of points. Now I’m going to ‘relax’ a bit in the WDW and then rest a bit to recharge my batteries for the next race”.
“It has been a difficult weekend. I expected to do much better, but lately, we didn’t find the right way. Today in the race there was no way to fight with those who were ahead of me and I don’t understand why. Now we are going to have a small break, where we will reset in order to get stronger for the rest of the championship”.
