Moto2 Indian GP: Vietti KO at first corner, Gomez 16th

Moto2 Indian GP: Vietti knocked out at first corner, Gomez 16th


Greater Noida, 24 September 2023


It was a very unlucky race for Celestino Vietti. Indeed, for him, there was no race at all. Immediately after the start, another rider knocked him down in a crash involving four others at the first corner. The red flag stopped the race, but the Piedmontese rider could not rejoin the next restart.

Unfortunately, initial examinations revealed a fracture of the pubic bone.

It was a pity because Vietti, who had just become familiar with the Buddh International Circuit, had been fast throughout the weekend, even setting the third-fastest time in FP3.

Borja Gomez crossed the finish line in sixteenth position, replicating his best performance of the season in the Austrian GP.
