Solid race for Nakagami in Portimao

IDEMITSU Honda LCR rider Takaaki Nakagami crossed the line 14th on Sunday in Portimao.

After a tough weekend at the Autodromo do Algarve, Nakagami has carried out a consistent race: despite rivals not making it easy and not having the best feeling on the bike, the Japanese managed to get to his goals, which was grabbing some points for the championship.

Overall, the Portuguese Grand Prix has been tougher than expected, and there are some areas to analyze and improve to make a step in the next race (Circuit of the Americas, 14th of April).

Takaaki Nakagami 14th
“The situation compared to yesterday hasn’t changed a lot, but this morning we found something as we decided to do some modifications to improve the grip. I’ve got a better feeling, and we’ve kept it for the race. I could have taken a better position, but I lost a lot of time following Marini. Then I just tried my best and scored some points, which is always important”.
