2019 Czech GP – Moto3 – Rider statements

Alonso López

I’m happy with how the race was going. We started very strongly and were up into the Top 3, until there were a few moments of chaos in the group and I decided to stay clear and drop down a couple of positions. At that moment, Toba crashed in front of me and we were left a little adrift of the group.

When we were regaining ground, my teammate knocked into me in a racing incident and we both went down. What I’ll take away from today is the beginning of the race. We have to continue with our progress.

Sergio García

Today I was starting from a long way back on the grid, because in yesterday’s qualifying session on a wet track I didn’t have a good feeling on the bike. In the race, the group split and I was in the second part of it.

I had a lot of pace and I felt comfortable on the bike. When we reached the front group, I continued to gain positions until my crash. I had another rider on the inside and when I was passing there was contact, with Alonso [López] and me both going to ground. It was a racing incident.
