Petrucci: “Eighth is a great result for us”

An impressive ride at the difficult Circuit of the Americas for 'Petrux'

Danilo Petrucci (Octo Pramac Racing) started P13 at the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas, and the Italian took some serious scalps on his way to another top ten finish in P8 – including Jonas Folger (Monster Yamaha Tech 3), Jack Miller (Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS) and Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati Team).

Crossing the line in eighth on his GP17, ‘Petrux’ praised the team’s hard work and the tyre choice – hard rear – that helped him bounce back from a more difficult Saturday.

Danilo Petrucci, P8: ““I am very happy for today’s race. Yesterday we were in trouble as I could not have a good feeling with the front. We have studied the data very much and this job paid off as well as the choice of hard the tyre at the rear. We’ve made all the right choices. That is why I want to thank the whole team, especially my crew chief Daniele Romagnoli and my electronic engineer Christian Battaglia because they did a great job. It’s a great result for us”.
