Exide Technologies congratulates Morbidelli to a superb ninth place in Spanish MotoGP

Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS rider Franco Morbidelli scored his first top ten finish in MotoGP with a superbly judged ride into ninth place in the Spanish Grand Prix at Jerez. With a fast start and dash through the traffic Morbidelli moved from 15th to 12th on the opening lap before settling into a smooth race rhythm that had him settled in tenth by lap eight. Morbidelli’s pace and patience as grip levels went down late in the race were rewarded with ninth at the finish ahead of factory KTM riders Mika Kallio and Pol Espargaro. For Tom Lüthi the race was another signal of his MotoGP potential despite failing to finish when he crashed out at turn 11 with ten laps remaining. At the time of his exit Lüthi, who was back in 21st on lap one, was in a close battle with Tito Rabat who finished in the points in 14th. The next race in two weeks is the French GP at Le Mans.

Exide Technologies is an official Sponsor of the Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS MotoGP Team 2018.
