Blog | Filip Salač fighting for a win and winning a Moto3 ride

Hello everybody!

I'm going to tell you something about my last race in Spielberg and news about me for next year!

I won FP1 with really a good feeling but then in FP2 it was wet and I crashed ay 200km/h on the straight because of aquaplaning. It wasn't a small crash but I was OK. In QP I finished 11th but I said that I was strong in dry so it was good.

In Race 1 I was 2nd after the first lap so the start was brilliant and I was on the top for the full race but in the last lap I made a mistake so I finished 5th.

In the second race I had another rocket start and I was 1st after the opening lap. I was in the top 3 on every lap but to run away from the group wasn't possible.

I made a wrong last lap strategy and I finished 3rd but I'm happy from this weekend because I was really strong and it was cool to be on the top. Thanks to all staff from Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup for their support!

I have news for next season with me. I'm happy to announce that I will be a Moto3 rider with Redox Prüstel GP team in 2019 on KTM bike. I'm really happy about it but now I want to be focused to finish this season as best as possible here in Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup and Junior World Championship Moto3.

Thanks to all for this opportunity and biggest thanks goes to the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup because without them I'm not where I'm now. These 3 years gave me many experiences and I'm really happy for this opportunity and I want to work with Red Bull in the future.

One more thanks to all my fans, family, sponsors and all staff here!

Your Filip #12
