Qualified: 16th Finished: 14th
Laverty’s hunt for a top 10 finish in the championship suffered a blow at Aragon, after a mistake in the final laps of Sunday’s race cost him valuable points. Admitting afterwards he should maybe have gone with a harder tyre, he was left frustrated.
“The start of the race with a full tank was difficult but then I settled into a good rhythm with Pirro. I wanted to try and pass him towards the end, but the front tyre was too soft and it started moving around, and I ran off the track, which cost me a couple of positions.”
