Marini e Baldassarri cominciano il 2017 in grande stile


I piloti del Forward Racing Team hanno dato prova di una performance eccellente durante la prima gara del Campionato Moto2, disputata sotto i riflettori del Losail International Circuit, concludendo rispettivamente in sesta e ottava posizione.
 
Marini ha spinto forte fin dai primi giri per rimanere nel gruppetto degli inseguitori, dopo essere scattato dalla tredicesima casella della griglia. Il pilota diciannovenne è stato in grado di mantenere un ritmo costante per tutti i 20 giri della gara, passando sotto la bandiera a scacchi in un’eccellente sesta posizione.
 
Anche la partenza del compagno di squadra Lorenzo Baldassarri è stata molto positiva e gli ha permesso di guadagnare subito quattro posizioni. Il pilota marchigiano è stato capace di raggiungere un buon ritmo che gli ha consentito di effettuare un’ottima seconda parte di gara passando dal dodicesimo all’ottavo piazzamento. Questo risultato potrebbe risultare importante in ottica campionato per Lorenzo, uno dei principali contendenti al titolo mondiale Moto2.
 
Dopo un inizio di stagione decisamente positivo, il Forward Racing Team torna in pista fra due settimane sul circuito di Termas de Rio Hondo, in Argentina per il secondo appuntamento del Mondiale Moto2 2017.

Luca Marini – 6° (+13.747)
“Sono davvero soddisfatto del risultato di oggi che mi ha permesso di migliorare il piazzamento del Qatar del 2016. E’ stata una gara impegnativa ma sono stato in grado di gestirla al meglio. Credo di essere molto cresciuto rispetto allo scorso anno, soprattutto per quanto riguarda la capacità di gestire le gomme per tutta la durata della gara. Il lavoro svolto durante i test invernali e durante tutto il weekend è stato fondamentale e mi ha permesso di sentirmi sempre a mio agio sulla moto. Sono del parere che il risultato di oggi fosse il massimo che potessimo fare, tenendo in considerazione anche la mia posizione in griglia. Perciò sono veramente felice e fiducioso per la prossima gara che si correrà in Argentina fra due settimane.”

Lorenzo Baldassarri – 8° (+17.465)
“Sapevo che la gara non sarebbe stata facile dopo che l’annullamento delle qualifiche ci ha costretto a partire dalla quindicesima posizione in griglia. Tuttavia, già alla prima curva sono riuscito a recuperare diverse posizioni ma poi ho dovuto mollare il gas per evitare il contatto con altri piloti. Dopo la fase iniziale, ho raggiunto un buon ritmo che mi ha permesso di effettuare diversi sorpassi e ad arrivare agli scarichi di Vierge con il quale ho lottato fino alla fine, sebbene io fossi più veloce. Negli ultimi giri ho dato il 100% e, nonostante un paio di errori, sono stato in grado di mantenere l’ottava posizione fino alla bandiera a scacchi. Vorrei cogliere l’occasione per ringraziare il Forward Racing Team per un inizio di stagione cosí positivo. Continueremo a spingere e ad impegnarci come sempre e già non vedo l’ora di arrivare in Argentina per il prossima gran premio.”

“Che gara! Non potrei essere più fiero dei miei ragazzi e di tutta la mia squadra. Luca ha dimostrato di essere maturato molto durante l’inverno ed è stato in grado di gestire la gara in maniera magistrale. Dopo un’ottima partenza, è riuscito a mantenere la calma senza commettere errori e questo gli ha permesso di centrare il suo obiettivo per questa gara, ovvero migliorare il piazzamento del Qatar 2016. Addirittura, per alcuni giri è riuscito a tenere lo stesso passo dei primi. Sono sicuro che questo sia solo l’inizio e che durante la stagione 2017 Luca ci regalerà grandi soddisfazioni. Anche Lorenzo ha condotto una buona gara, soprattutto tenendo in considerazione l’infortunio delle scorse settimane. Ha portato a casa punti importanti in ottica campionato e sono certo che utilizzerà i prossimi giorni per riposarsi ed arrivare in Argentina ancora più in forma.”

Marini and Baldassarri kick off 2017 in impressive style


The Forward Racing Team duo of Luca Marini and Lorenzo Baldassarri delivered an excellent performance in today’s opening round of the Moto2 World Championship under the spectacular floodlights of the Losail International Circuit, finishing in sixth and eight position respectively.
 
Marini pushed hard during the first laps to quickly find himself inside the chasing pack, after he leapt off the line from 13th position on the starting grid. With a great perseverance, the 19-year old made his way through to the top of his group during the 20-lap sprint to finally see the chequered flag in sixth place.
 
Also his teammate, Lorenzo Baldassarri, jumped of the line in positive fashion, immediately recovering four positions on the opening lap. He quickly set in a strong rhythm and commenced to battle through the field. During the second half of the race, the young Italian progressed from eleventh to eight position, which enabled him to take home precious championship points for one of the main Moto2 title contenders.
 
After this positive season opening the Forward Racing Team will be back on track in Termas de Rio Hondo, Argentina for the second Grand Prix of the exciting 2017 Moto2 World Championship in just a fortnight.

Luca Marini – 6th (+13.747)
“To be honest I’m very happy about this result, because I could improve my tenth place from last year, which was something really important for me in order to show the progress I made during the winter. In addition, I’m very pleased, because I was able to manage the tyres well during the entire race and this was something I struggled with in 2016. Now I feel more comfortable with my Kalex and the Moto2 category overall. I really have to say I’m satisfied. It’s not easy for me to admit that, because I always want to do better, but I think today we achieved our maximum result. The following round takes place in Argentina, a completely different track, yet, I’m sure we can do well there.”

Lorenzo Baldassarri – 8th (+17.465)
 “We knew that the race would not have been an easy one, after the cancellation of the qualifying practice and our unfortunate grid position. Still, I had a good start and was able to recover several positions before the first corner. However, at the exit of turn two I had to close the throttle to avoid a couple of riders, who had touched each other.  After that, I settled in a decent rhythm and was in the battle making up different positions. I felt strong with my pace. When I arrived to Vierge in the end, I struggled to pass him, even tough, I was faster. In the last two laps, I gave my 100% to try to defend my position, but I did a couple of mistakes and missed the break in one corner. Fortunately, I was still able to maintain eight position until the chequered flag. I want to take the opportunity to express a huge thanks to all the Forward Racing Team for this good start of the season. We will keep pushing, like always and I already can’t wait for the next race.”

“What a race! I can’t be prouder of my riders and the whole team. Luca did a fantastic performance and it’s more than obvious that he got a lot more mature this winter. He got a decent start, kept calm and didn’t make any mistakes. Ten days ago, he arrived in Qatar with the aim to improve his placement of last year and he managed to do so in an impressive manner. Luca even lapped with similar lap times compared to the front guys over certain stages of the race. I’m sure, he has a fantastic year ahead. Lorenzo did a good race as well, especially after his injury of the last weeks. He was able to bring home important points, which might be crucial at the end of the championship. For sure, he’ll now take the opportunity to relax during the next days in order to be 100% fit and well prepared for an even stronger appearance in Argentina.”
