Danilo Petrucci is on fire. Following the podium at Mugello and the great race in Barcellona, at the Cathedral of Speed he was protagonist of a stunning race.
Petrux started well from the front row, and was immediately in the leading group with Zarco, Rossi and Marquez. The race pace was awesome and the third position came during lap 11 when he was able to overtake Zarco. Four laps later he attacked Marquez for the second position. A few drops of rain begin eight laps before the end of the race however the leading group remained on the track. Seven laps from the end also Dovizioso was able to catch the leading group and the fight was epic. Petrux came out victorious and remained attached to Rossi in order to take the lead of the race 4 lap from the end. Petrux was also ready for a new attack on the last lap, but Rins and Barbera (along with the absence of blue flags) did not allow him to find the right condition to overtake Valentino. Petrux ended second only at 63 thousands of a second from Vale. We will try again in Germany Petrux!
2nd – Danilo Petrucci
"It's a great result. I am very happy for this P2 although I have to admit that for a long time I had the taste of victory in my mouth. I was convinced I could pass Valentino in the last lap. Everything was set for the overtake but unfortunately I struggled to pass Rins and Barberà who were lapped. It’s a pity. I am sure, however, that tomorrow morning I will realize what we did: a great weekend. And to be honest I can not wait to be in Germany. I want to win!".
