Webb frustrated as yet another technical problem cuts his home race short
There can be hard days in racing, and the British GP was one of them for the Mahindra Moto3™ squad. Only one of the two riders made the finish, showing a spirit of perseverance that the team is confident will take them through the hard times, as the Indian manufacturer strives to make its mark in MotoGP racing.
Danny Webb (21, from England) had higher hopes for his home GP, and was moving up towards a points-scoring top-15 place when he was sidelined by a technical glitch.
Webb finished the first lap two places down on his 21st-place qualifying position. As the race wore he picked up a couple of places, hopeful of taking more profit in the usual drama of the final laps. But after 11 of 17 laps a technical issue forced him to pull off the track, his race over.
DANNY WEBB Today the bike felt different from yesterday, and then in the race it broke on me. I’m really frustrated, also to see Marcel a lap behind was a shame. He is a really good rider and it is a shame that we are just not in a position to get results at the moment. I thought we’d made a step at the last race, but we need to keep pushing.
