Blog | Adrián Carrasco winning a podium place in Mugello

Hello everyone,

I will tell you about my fantastic race weekend in Mugello, in the second race of the Red Bull Rookies Cup. From the first moment I had a good feeling with the bike as well as with the circuit.

In FP1 I had my first contact with the circuit, it was fascinating, I thought it was an impressive track and it was so good that I ended up in P4.

In FP2 I tried to improve in some sectors to better the time I had made in FP1, I did improve but so did many others so I finished in P8.

It was time for the QP and time to try to get a position in the first three lines of the grid. And so it was that in the QP I ended up P8.

The time for Race 1 arrived, in the first laps I made a mistake so that I was not towards the front of the group during the whole race. But about the middle of the race I tried to push to be in the first positions and with two laps to go I was fourth and I knew I could make a podium.

On the last lap I took the lead, fighting with Can and Kunii, which in the end had a goal ahead of me that meant that I had finished in P3 a few thousandths of the seconds off the first.

Thank you very much for reading my blog and I'm waiting for you in the next race that will be played in Holland (Assen).

See you there,

Adrián
