Third victory and seventh podium of Dennis Foggia so far this season. The Italian of the Leopard gave his last push to get into the fight for the champion title in a day where the three leaders of the general classification ran out of options: Acosta and García Dols on the ground and Fenati cut off by the fall of Gabri Rodrigo at the start of the race. Foggia was accompanied on the podium by two KTMs, the one from Deniz Oncü, which continues to progress favorably in Moto3 and that of Ayumu Sasaki.

The perfect Honda. That is what Foggia has thought after seeing how his team is one of the few capable of competing with the KTMs in the small category. “It was amazing, especially The last turn with Oncü. He was very strong in braking but I had high speed on the straights, “commented the Italian, who made the most of the development of his bike.” I saw on the dashboard that Acosta had fallen and also Sergio García Dols, so it was worth a try with everything to cut as many points as possible. I only have words of thanks for everyone, especially my father. “
Third podium for Deniz Oncü, who begins to run as a candidate to do great things in the coming years. “Grand Prix difficult for me. We have not found the best sensations in no time, but we have saved it. We had pace and I was able to lead for many laps. I have smelled victory like never before, so it’s due to arrive very shortly. I’ve already been close in Austria … there is no other choice but to trust. I’m a little angry but hungrier“, concluded Kenan Sofuoglu’s pupil with a laugh.
And the podium was closed by the Japanese rider Ayumu Sasaki, who needed a good result to regain confidence. “This weekend we start with bad feelings on the bike, but we don’t give up. The team worked on the set-ups and we managed to manage the end of the race perfectly. I’m always close to the head, but so far we had not gone well. There are five races left and we will give everything we have to be here again, “commented Oncü’s teammate, who is on the podium for the first time this season.
