Tom Lüthi finishes 17th in Argentina
The second MotoGP race of the 2018 season was one more big learning session for Tom Lüthi. He finishes 17th in the race of Argentina.
There was a confusing delay to the race due to safety concerns as many teams left the grid to switch from wet weather tyres to slicks to account for the quickly drying track conditions. While the narrow racing line made overtaking difficult Tom Lüthi rode a controlled and calm race to finish just 0.4s behind Lorenzo.
Tom Lüthi (17th):
I learnt a lot this weekend with the crazy weather and track conditions. I am hoping for bigger steps to improve but at the end of the race I was too much on the limit and fighting with the bike, I had some slides on the wet part of the track. I had a nice fight with Franco to try and get in the points but, unfortunately, I just missed out.
