 In News

Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP’s Remy Gardner (replacing the injured Álex Rins) kept busy during the 15 laps of the Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland Sprint. He put pressure on the rivals ahead of him and secured 20th place.

Remy was excited to start his first ever MotoGP Sprint. He had a good start from P22 as he stormed towards the first corner. He tried to follow the pack and later focused on his own race rhythm. The Australian kept a solid pace and passed Acosta three laps before the end. It spurred him on to make a late charge towards Joan Mir, who he overtook in the final stages. He then dashed towards the start-finish straight to take the chequered flag in 20th place, 26.366s from first.

I had a really good start, like I made up for one row on the grid, but when I went unto the first corner… I didn’t brake too late. I chickened out a bit, to be honest, and Joan Mir and Johann Zarco got past me again. I was trying to get back around, trying in Turn 5, but I couldn’t manage it, and then Stefan Bradl got by me. I was missing some explosivity on the first five laps to make those good lap times because after that I was managing it, but they had already made a bit of a gap. For sure, I learned a lot in that Sprint race, I got some data, and tomorrow I will come back with a different head, and it will be a different story then.
