De Angelis equals best MotoGP result

De Angelis equals best MotoGP result

Alex de Angelis matched his best ever premier class result in fourth place at Donington Park.

San Carlo Honda Gresini’s Alex de Angelis was unsurprisingly over the moon with his fourth place in a difficult MotoGP race at the British Grand Prix on Sunday.

Alex de Angelis

“I am absolutely delighted. That was one of the most difficult races in my whole career because when you’re on a bike with so much power in those conditions, on a circuit like Donington, which everybody knows is particularly slippery, it’s tough! The hardest thing was finding a compromise between attacking for a good position and defending it by staying upright. I could see I had a good pace and I was closing the gap to the guys in front of me but the most important thing was to finish and get a good result. I think that shows how much I have matured because it is the kind of mistake I made last year. I hope that is a good sign for the future and I think it proves the way myself and my Chief Mechanic have kept working and kept trying to improve without losing faith.”
