Just a Top-10 finish for Navarro at Aragon

The Aragón Grand Prix did not bring the results expected by Jorge Navarro, especially as the young Spaniard put together and amazing performance in qualifying to claim a spot on the front row of the grid for today’s race – on what has been a kind track for him in the past. The 22-year-old was not in perfect condition as he had a health issue during the night and had to pay a visit to the Clinica Mobile in the morning, but still decided to line up on the grid to defend his position.

Unfortunately for him, Jorge had a bad start to the race and moved all the way down to 15thwhen he was forced to take a wider line after being overtaken by Corsi. Once he found his rhythm, Navarro managed to make his way back to tenth place to collect a few important points in what was a very complicated Sunday for him.

Team Federal Oil Gresini Moto2 will now prepare for the long overseas trip which will begin on October 3rdat Buriram (Thailand).


“Unfortunately at turn 15 during the opening lap I found myself battling with Corsi. He passed me first, but I knew I was quicker than him so I didn’t want to waste too much time behind him. When I took the wider line to pass him I almost lost the front: I really took a big risk and lost a lot of places. From then on all I could do is to get back together and ride at my pace, which I think it would have allowed me to stay with the leaders today. This top-10 is a so-so result, but we’re still going in the right direction.”
