Leaving behind the Styrian GP with the 14th final place and close to direct access to Q2 in Saturday’s qualifying, Luca Marini back on track at Spielberg for the 11th round of the 2021 season. Two points collected at the end of a more complicated race than expected for Luca, 24 years old today, who had to manage the drop of the rear tire from the first laps. The goal for the weekend is to continue working on the details to better face the second half of the season aboard the Ducati of the Sky VR46 Avintia.
Luca Marini: “We are always back on track in Spielberg after a few days. In the first race we weren’t perfect, but we hit the points, now we face another weekend here: we will still work on the details, which are also useful for future GPs and on how to take a step forward in the initial stages of the race “.
Ruben Xaus (team manager): “On Sunday Luca hit the points once again and is now facing a second race again in Austria. We have a lot of info and this will surely help a rookie. Last weekend we used the lowering device for the first time, there were many mechanisms to be fine-tuned to understand how everything works, but now it will be better and Luca can make a qualitative leap. The Top12 is the goal and why not also to get closer to the Top10 before Silverstone “.
