The first European round of the 2019 MotoGP season does not give high lights to Pramac Racing. Jack – who started from 15th position – is the protagonist of a great start and by mid-race has already recovered 7 positions. The Australian tries to stay with the group fighting for the podium but from lap 18 his race pace is no longer incisive, then the fall on lap 20.
After two very positive days, Pecco is unable to take advantage of the tenth position on the grid and finds himself 16th on the first lap. His race ended 5 laps later with a crash without any particular consequences.
Pecco Bagnaia: It was a difficult race because I didn’t get off to a good start. My race pace was not bad but when I tried to overtake Espargaro I made a small mistake and crashed. It’s a shame because we worked well this weekend. I can’t wait to be at Le Man, a track I really like.
Jack Miller: I am very sorry because it is always a shame to fall with a few laps to go. I am especially sorry for the team that did a great job in these three days in Jerez. I tried to stay with the group fighting for the podium then I felt that I no longer have feeling. I’ll be back stronger at Le Mans.
