Following the fourth round of the 2021 MotoGP World Championship season at the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto, Iker Lecuona and Danilo Petrucci have been straight back to work today at the same venue for the official test under a cloudy Andalusian sky.
With P19 in Qualifying Tech3 KTM factory Racing’s Danilo Petrucci launched off the Gran Premio Red Bull de España from row seven of the grid. With a decent start the Italian saw the line in P17 after lap one. Keeping a consistent rhythm throughout the 25 laps competition, he made up a few positions and eventually took home two more Championship points with 14th.
There will be four full-factory KTM RC16s on the MotoGP grid for the next five seasons after KTM renewed their association with the Tech3 KTM Factory Racing team and one of the most successful satellite squads in Grand Prix.
