Petrucci: “I had lack of traction in the corner exit”

Petrucci: “I had lack of traction in the corner exit”

A top ten finish at the bwin Grand Prix České republiky for Danilo Petrucci who battled with rear traction issues.

Sunday’s race saw Danilo Petrucci continue his run of point scoring finishes in the MotoGP™ World Championship, having brought home points at each round this year. Petrucci’s consistency has been commendable; his worst finish a 12th at the season opener in Qatar. The Italian pushed hard to close down Aleix Espargaro (Team Suzuki Ecstar) but problems with the rear limited his progress. Many MotoGP™ also complained about a lack of rear traction as the race went on, Brno this year proving a tough year for grip.

Petrucci’s consistent season has him sitting tenth in the championship, one point clear of Maverick Viñales on the factory Team Suzuki Ecstar bike. Defending his top ten status in the World Championship will be Petrucci’s main aim going forward in 2015.

Danilo Petrucci: “I'm satisfied. The position on the grid was not easy but in the first two corner I managed to recover some positions. I tried to keep the ninth place but I suffered a lot with the rear. I was hoping to get Aleix Espargaro, I tried to push a lot but I had lack of traction especially in the corner exit. So I preferred not to risk it and take home this result. The team did a great job to put me in a position to achieve this resul. I think in this GPGP, despite some difficulties, everybody have been a great job.”
