Bendsneyder has scored two points after finishing fourteenth. After a very bad start ( from P8 to P17 at the end of lap 1) Bendsneyder was fighting to gain positions when he had to go wide at one of the chicanes of the French track and received a long lap penalty. Bo complied his penalty and this conditioned the rest of his race. Bo has managed to get into the points (P14) and he places himself 10th in the Moto2 World Championship standings.
#64 Bo Bendsneyder – P14 – +26,952
“I am really disappointed about the race; I was expecting much more. Specially after the feeling I had this morning in the warm up. The track conditions during the race were very hot compared to the other sessions we had on track, as we saw there were so many crashes. I struggled a lot with the front and I had not much grip in the rear. Unfortunately, aside from all that a rider went wide and I had to jump the chicane so I got a long lap penalty. We need to accept these things can happen. P14 is not what we expected but we are now p10 in the Championship, so we are looking forward to the next race. Thanks to my team as they did a great job, as always!”
