penultimate round of the World Championship was held last weekend in
Argentina, on the San Juan Villicum race track. Although it was a brand
new track for Hannes, he got used to the track quickly and won Superpole
1 on Saturday. In Superpole 2 he improved his time by 0.11 seconds and
took P9 for the starting grid. Sadly on the opening lap he lost couple
of positions dropping back to 11th. For the next 5 laps he was in a very
tight group and on P13. he managed to gain a couple of positions over
the next few laps but still finished P13 on the finishing line.
„For sure it was not the race we hoped for but we had a really good weekend and we have to take the positives. In the race it was difficult for me to use the strong points of Honda and the conditions on race day didn’t make it any easier. We learn something again and for sure we are now stronger for Qatar. Thanks to my crew who made a great job again this weekend and we get stronger and stronger each weekend, now we just have to make it work on Sunday.
