Tom Lüthi finishes twentieth at heat soaked Buriram

Tom Lüthi weathered the oppressive heat and humidity at Buriram for the inaugural Thailand Grand Prix, round 15 of the MotoGP World Championship.

Tom Lüthi was 23rd on timesheet after the warm-up and then faced torrid opening lap in heavy traffic from the eighth row of the grid. Unfortunately a mistake on lap one cost the Swiss rider dearly but Luthi was determined to keep his rhythm and complete race having also chosen the hard rear tyre. He finished in 20th position.

The next MotoGP World Championship race will be held from October 19 to 21 at the Twin Ring Motegi in Japan.


Tom Lüthi: 20th, +39.421

It is pity because I made big mistake at the beginning and that destroyed my race. I had a big moment after turn three on the first lap, the bike was out of control on the brakes and difficult to stop I was on the grass and in last position. Then I lost six seconds avoiding the Taka Nakagami crash so with my race gone I just continued on to try and understand the bike more. It was good physical workout in these hot conditions.
