Red Bull MotoGP Rookies - Alt's perfect double

Florian Alt, the 16 year old German scored a fantastic double Dutch TT victory by matching his Assen Race 1 genius and crossing the line fractionally ahead of 14 year old Spaniard Marcos Ramirez and German 16 year old Philipp Oettl.

Again it was a huge pack chasing the rostrum places right through the final chicane and again it was that last section that confounded pole man Karel Hanika. This time the 16 year old Czech cartwheeled into the gravel trap after breaking too hard and clipping the back of Alt as they shed speed.

French 15 year old Simon Danilo shrugged off his early season misfortune with a great 4th. Making the best of a tough battle mid-pack, 15 year old Briton Bradley Ray crossed the line 5th.

Alt's 4th win of the season has seen him take the Cup lead from Oettl and now has an 8 point advantage as they head to their home Grand Prix in a week's time.

Florian Alt

"It was a great race, so tough just like yesterday. Again it was Philipp, Karel and I who did a lot of the leading and fighting. It was obvious it would come down to the chicane again so I just tried to cover it as well as I could, I felt something hit my boot, I guess it was Karel but I really don't know what happened."

Races 9 and 10 of the 15 in the season take place at the Sachsenring next weekend, June 7th and 8th.
