The Gran Premio de la Republica Argentina gives great satisfaction to Pramac Racing with Jack Miller protagonist of an extraordinary race celebrated at Parc Ferme as 1st Independent, and Francesco Bagnaia who manages to score the first two points of his MotoGP career.
Jack got a great start from P5 to finish the opening lap in 3rd position. Halfway through the race, he is still glued to the group that fights for the second position then he is involved in a battle with Morbidelli and Petrucci that makes him lose some positions (7th place on lap 16). The Australian rider remains focused and begins a great comeback that allows him to overcome Morbidelli, Petrucci and Rins to easily finish in fourth place.
Pecco’s start – from P17 – is very positive and allows him to recover three positions in the first 3 laps. The Italian rider pushes hard but halfway through the race, the consumption of the front tire is already high. Bagnaia still has the merit of not giving up and after winning the duel with Zarco finishes in 14th position.
Pecco Bagnaia: “It was very important to finish the race and understand as much as possible. I am quite happy with the result: it is a good starting point. I understood a lot about how to ride in the first phase of the race. I got off to a good start and managed to go fast but I overheated the front tyre. It was a good weekend and we are going to Austin with confidence”.
Jack Miller: “I am obviously satisfied with the result we achieved in Argentina, although I may have lacked some experience. I fought a lot with Petrucci and Morbidelli and this duel made me lose contact with the riders in front. All thing considered it’s okay because today we have learned a lot. We are working very well and for this I thank the team”.
