Karel Abraham (Pull&Bear Aspar Team) was the hero of qualifying as the Czech rider took P2 on the grid behind only reigning Champion Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team), but there was a bump in the road as the number 17 then suffered a crash in morning Warm Up – and faced the race start on the second bike.
Getting a good launch and making the most of the grid position, Abraham then crossed the line in P10 by the flag – a solid six points in the bag, and some big positives to take into the next round at the Circuit of the Americas.
Karel Abraham, P10: “I think it has been a very good weekend for us. I am very happy with the six points, which is incredible, and with our qualifying performance yesterday. It wasn't an easy day after the crash this morning, which meant we had to start with the other bike. I was a little nervous about that, also because I was on the front row. This is beyond my expectations. I knew we weren't going to fight for the podium but this is still a great result. The bike worked really well here so we can leave Argentina feeling very happy and ready for the next one in Austin”
