Alonso López Secured a Back to Back Podium. Aldeguer Finishes the French GP in Eight Position

At the French Grand Prix, an amazing Alonso López finished the race with a solid third place, marking his third podium of the season, while Aldeguer crossed the finish line in eighth position after taking a long lap penalty.

After an impeccable start, the number 21 reaches the first position leaving behind Arbolino and Acosta. Unfortunately, the race was stopped due to multiple crashes at turn five, less than three laps before the lights went out. The race direction announces that the quick restart procedure will start again for a total of 14 laps. Back on track, Alonso got off to a good start with his Boscoscuro, remaining in the leading group. After Acosta’s crash he finds himself fighting with Salac arriving at the finish line in third position. The Madrilenian thus returns to celebrate the third step of the podium and for the second time in a row demonstrating to everyone that he is one of the protagonists of this Championship.

Even Aldeguer, who started from the fourth row of the starting grid, leaps extraordinarily from P11 to P4 and what could have been the start of an excellent race is instead cut short by the red flag. In the second start, Fermín finds a few more complications in making his way among the other riders but still concludes a solid race even after performing a long lap on the ninth lap. Despite this, he does not lose the group and ends his race in P8.

ALONSO LÓPEZ #21: 3rd

“In this race I tried to keep calm as much as possible; I’m happy with how we handled it and the result we got. Now we keep working to try to improve even more and get even better results. Thanks to my team for the work done.”

FERMÍN ALDEGUER #54: 8th

“After this race I’m happy and angry at the same time. We didn’t deserve the penalty they gave us but I know that during the races you have to expect anything. All in all we had an excellent weekend that could have ended in the best possible way given the jump from P11 to P4 after the first start. We continue at this pace of work.”
