Tom Lüthi (16th) fights his way within reach of the points
Tom Lüthi finishes the tenth MotoGP weekend of the 2018 season in 16th place. The days in Brno are a good basis for the Swiss to attack again next weekend in Spielberg (Austria).
While the heat wave weather eased for the race with track temperatures down to a bearable 41 degrees the on-track action was close and fast at the 5.4km Brno circuit. For Tom Luthi finishing 16th was a deserving reward after losing time on the opening lap after starting from 21st on the grid. At the finish Luthi was just one position out of the points and equalled his previous results this season at Le Mans and Qatar.
Tom Lüthi: 16th, +27.673
