After the crazy race of the Grand prix of Australia, even at Sepang, the Moto3 class distinguished for an impressive number of crashes, lots of them occurred in succession, and a red flag closing the race 4 laps early. An elimination challenge which involved even the two riders of the Ongetta Rivacold Racing team. Niccolò Antonelli, starting from the sixth position on the grid, did a good start, recovered positions and joined the group ahead. During the sixth lap, when he was third, the rider from Cattolica crashed, followed by his teammate Jules Danilo. Nicco continued the race and crossed the finishing line twelfth.


Niccolò Antonelli: “Today we could get a good result but I crashed to avoid a patch of water. I could pass above it but I preferred to do a different trajectory and it was worse: the front closed and I crashed. I continued the race and finished twelfth by getting some points but, obviously, I am not happy “.

Jules Danilo: “Today I did a good start, I avoided crashes in front of me and passed 9 riders at the first lap. I continued to pass until the seventh position and then the fifth. In one of the previous crashes, one or more bikes lost oil on track which almost everywhere, especially at corner 8 and 9. When I was approaching the corner 9, Nicco crashed in front of me, I missed the focus and passed above one of the patch by loosing the front“.
