Unlucky end for Tech3 Racing duo following hard work during Czech GP

Bo Bendsneyder 

Position: DNF – Championship: 29th – Points: -

Gardner - 2018We had a good Warm Up, a decent weekend, especially after we struggled a bit on day one. We knew where we needed to improve and we did it in FP3. In Qualifying we showed it again and even in Warm Up with used tyres we had a good pace. So we were confident about the race, but finally we didn’t make one lap. Some rider in front of me crashed and it was difficult to avoid it, so I was down too. It’s really difficult to understand that such a positive weekend got destroyed by another rider, which is the worst feeling for me, but also for the team. Because we worked truly hard this weekend to show what we are capable to do, but finally we didn’t finish the race. We want to keep this focus and this working style for the next races and hopefully the results follow.

This was probably one of the shortest races of the Tech3 Moto2 team with both riders down in the first lap. I don’t want to blame anybody because we know how tough these first laps are. With having to start far sometimes, you want to try to much too early and I think this is what happened. Remy touched Mir and that was the end of their race. I feel also very sorry for Bo as he had his best Qualifying of the year, he was strong in Warm Up and he was ready for a good fight, but he couldn’t do anything to avoid the crash. I’m very sorry, but that’s part of this close racing. The good news is, that there is another race in a few days and hopefully we can do better there.”
