Round 8 was the most exciting race seen so far during the 2017 MotoGP season and ended in another fine podium for REV'IT! rider, Danilo Petrucci.
From the moment the lights turned green, the Cathedral of Speed was challenging the 23 riders on the grid.
DNF | Alvaro Bautista
The first few laps were great. I had some nice fights with several riders and the feeling with the bike was good. Unfortunately, I lost the bike in turn 5. Why? I cannot say. These things just happen. Like I said; the feeling is good and physically I am okay, so bring on Sachsenring!
2nd | Danilo Petrucci
I had a good start from the front row and was immediately leading the group together with Zarco, Rossi and Marquez. I really enjoyed the battles that followed and I knew I had to stay close to Rossi. In the last lap I was ready to give it my all, but due to the absence of the blue flags I wasn't able to pass Rins and Barbera. The gap between Rossi and me was only +0.063! I am happy with the results and we will give it another go in Germany!
