In the Grand Prix of Austria, at Spielberg Red Bull Ring Circuit, Jules Danilo and Niccolò Antonelli crossed the finishing line respectively in sixteenth and eighteenth position. It was known that it wouldn’t have been an easy weekend for the Ongetta Rivacold Racing team. Niccolò Antonelli, who is still feeling lot of pain after the surgery at the fractured collarbone, succeeded in finishing the race. Jules Danilo worked harder this weekend at the new Austrian track, without getting points. In five days the two riders will come back on track again for the Grand Prix of Czech Republic. Last year, at Brno, Niccolò Antonelli got the pole position and his first win in career.
Niccolò Antonelli: “After the start I touched with other riders at the first and second corner and there I lost lots of positions. I decided to avoid risks as for me it was important to finish the race. Anyway I am happy as the feeling with the bike was good. I hope to feel better for the next race and to get a good result“.
Jules Danilo: “Obviously I am not completely satisfied of my race. I did some mistakes at the beginning that made me lost the contact with the group. It’s a shame as I was feeling good and the set up was good as we solved some problems we have had during first free practices. We will try again at Brno“.
