Enea Bastianini takes Red Bull MotoGP Rookies race 2 at Jerez

Posted:

Young Italian rider Enea Bastianini rounded off a top Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup weekend in Jerez, Spain on Sunday when he out-foxed Karel Hanika and Stefano Manzi to win the second of two races in this launching pad competition for junior racers.

Bastianini, in his debut year with the Rookies Cup took third on Saturday, but gaining in confidence, vaulted himself up the order on Sunday in just his fourth race in the series.

‰ÛÏI felt I was fast and felt I could win the race,‰Û
Red Bull Rookies race two hits turn 1
‰ÛÏAt the end I just tried to put in the perfect laps and hoped that was enough to win. Enea passed me and then I just got a sort of mental block that told me not to do anything silly at the last corner and that the points were more important. Of course that's true and it is important for the championship but it's not as much fun as winning.‰Û
