Vazquez finishes eighth for Mahindra Racing
Mahindra Racing delivered a third successive top-10 finish with 26-year-old Efren V zquez coming in eighth in the Spanish Grand Prix, the third round of the Moto3 championship.
However, the other Mahindra rider Miguel Oliveira missed out on points as he finished 16th on Sunday after recovering from a 11th lap crash. It was the first time that Mahindra failed to get both riders in the World Championship points.
The race was stopped after a crash with more than two-thirds distance completed and the results were taken from one lap earlier, the 15th of a scheduled 23. Vazquez said: “This is my second top-10 this year and Mahindra has had one or both riders in the top-10 at every race so far.
This is really important, so finally I am happy with this position. I had a slight problem with the engine temperature coming up so the bike was not really fast. I tried my best and then the red flag came out.”
