Another double race in Austria due to a red flag

Posted on Aug 24, 2020 by Aprilia Racing Team Gresini

It was almost a photocopy of what happened seven days ago at the Red Bull Ring: today a red flag once again interrupted the first part of the race, which then restarted for a 12-lap distance.

The Austrian double race confirms the good base of the RS-GP project, ready to take on the double “home” rounds in Misano.

Bradley Smith:
“Unfortunately, the conditions didn’t favour me today. We were ready to make the RS-GP work well with higher temperatures, but that’s not how it went. Anyway, in the first race we were keeping up with the group, so the red flag was not an advantage for us. We didn’t have any new soft tyres to put on and the restart ended up being basically a qualifying session. Many riders with new tyres managed to maintain a pace that was unsustainable for us. I see the glass half full after this weekend. We have definitely grown and I hope to be able to confirm that on a track like Misano that is kinder to us.”
