SUPERB PODIUM FOR DI GIANNANTONIO AT TERMAS DE RIO HONDO
Team Del Conca Gresini Moto3 is proving to be consistently on podium form: after Martin’s win in Qatar, it was Fabio Di Giannantonio who stepped on the lower step of the rostrum in Argentina at the end of a race that was characterised by mixed and surely not easy track conditions.
Starting from row two, Di Giannantonio quickly moved up towards the front and successfully managed to not let the leaders pull away at the beginning. With Bezzecchi running away, the #21 had to battle first with Canet and then with Masia (who had a crash after a collision with the Italian) to earn his first podium of the season and jump up near the top of the championship standings with 26 points.
It was an interesting race for Jorge Martin, who bravely chose after warm-up to get back to the pits to change tyres in order to start the race with slicks – albeit from the back of the grid. The strategy, however, did not pay off because despite a streak of quick laps, the Spaniard was only 11th at the flag (after recovering 17 positions) while scoring some important points for the title race.
After two rounds, Martin and Diggia are currently second and fourth, respectively, with only four points between them, while Team Del Conca Gresini Moto3 remain on top of the team standings with 56 points.
