Lorenzo Baldassarri cements Jerez hat-trick in maiden Virtual Race

The Italian took his third straight Moto2™ victory in Andalucia, only this time it was at the Red Bull Virtual Grand Prix of Spain

Lorenzo Baldassarri (FlexBox HP40) confirmed his love affair with the Circuito de Jerez – Angel Nieto after taking victory in the Moto2™ Virtual Race at the Red Bull Virtual Grand Prix of Spain.

The Italian has now won three races on the spin in Andalucia and took the maiden Virtual Moto2™ race honours having started from pole, edging out compatriot Luca Marini (SKY Racing Team VR46) in qualifying by 0.006 seconds. And Baldassarri made no mistake in the race to pick up his first victory of 2020, going one better than he did at the Qatar GP.

"I think this race was even tougher than the others. It was not easy to achieve victory,” said Baldassarri after the race. “I was sweating and so nervous that I had trouble controlling my fingers. I wouldn't be surprised if I was diagnosed with compartment syndrome,” joked ‘Balda’, who reviewed his initial battle with Marini and Jake Dixon (Petronas Sprinta Racing) on the opening laps.

 "I first had contact with Luca. So suddenly, Jake hit me. Honestly, I was lucky I didn't fall. Once I was in the lead, I tried to stay calm and in the end managed quite well. It was definitely a good race.”
