Fifth place for Schrötter & Unfortunate end of the Aragon-weekend for Vierge

Once again a strong race by Marcel Schrötter, who finished fifth at MotorLand Aragon. A difficult weekend on the other hand for Dynavolt Intact GP teammate Xavi Vierge, who crashed halfway through the race.

On Sunday, in the scorching heat at the MotorLand, Marcel Schrötter was back in the top group. This time, however, he could not intervene in the podium battle. After the 25-year-old started the 21-lap thriller from second place, soon had to let pole setter and the eventual Aragon winner, Brad Binder, pass by together with Alex Marquez. After the Italians Francesco Bagnaia and Lorenzo Baldassarri had passed the Intact GP rider as well, he fought in fifth for most of the race and finally defended this position successfully against Joan Mir, who dangerously caught up with Miguel Oliveira in tow.

With eleven extra points, Marcel Schrötter strengthened his seventh World Championship ranking. He is currently 15 points ahead of Mattia Pasini and has five remaining races of the season to try to reduce the 26 points to the top three.

Teammate Xavi Vierge unfortunately had to step back into tenth place in the overall standings. After a difficult Aragon weekend, on which the 21-year-old just could not build up an optimal feeling and no smooth rhythm. His race came to an early end due to a crash in the 14th lap. The Spaniard lost control of his front in turn 5 and slipped off the track. Luckily he stayed unharmed. However, he takes a few question marks from his home race, which must be solved in two weeks.

Thailand is the next opportunity for Xavi Vierge as well as for Marcel Schrötter to attack from scratch. The 15th race of the season at the Chang International Circuit in Buriram / Thailand from October 5th to 7th will be a new challenge for the entire Moto2 field.
