Challenging Race in Barcelona for Moto3 Riders

Despite a promising start, Taiyo Furusato, who was penalized with a double long lap penalty, managed to keep pace with the leading riders. Unfortunately, after overcoming this initial setback, Furusato crashed, ending his chances in the race. Tatchakorn Buasri, also serving a long lap penalty, maintained his pace and finished in 22nd position. Meanwhile, wildcard Fadillah Arbi Aditama completed his second World Championship race, finishing in 23rd position.

Today's Moto3 race proved to be a tough challenge for our riders. We had three competitors on the grid: Taiyo Furusato, who started in 4th position, Tatchakorn Buasri in 22nd, and wildcard Fadillah Arbi Aditama in 27th.
The race began well, particularly for Furusato, who managed to stay with the top group and rode competitively. However, he faced a double long lap penalty, causing him to drop several positions. Despite this setback, Furusato made an impressive effort to rejoin the leading group. Unfortunately, after serving the second long lap penalty, he made a mistake and crashed. It's disappointing because Furusato had the pace to achieve a strong result today.
Tatchakorn Buasri finished in 22nd position, while Fadillah Arbi Aditama concluded the race in 23rd. There was a significant gap between them and the riders ahead, highlighting the need for improvement. It was not an easy race for either Buasri or Aditama, and they must learn from their mistakes to enhance their performance in upcoming races.

Today's race in Barcelona was tough. Despite making some good overtakes and feeling competitive, an incident on the first lap caused me to lose contact with the group in front of me. Additionally, having to serve a long lap penalty made it even harder to achieve a good result.
We need to continue working hard and push from the beginning to secure better outcomes. The team put in a significant effort, but we need to do more to establish a solid performance from the first day on the track. I am committed to giving my best for a strong race next Sunday in Mugello.

Today, the feeling on the bike was much better than yesterday. I managed the pace well and tried to follow the riders in front of me. Unfortunately, at the start of the race, I made a few mistakes which caused me to lose some distance with group in front. Later, I had a touch with other riders while attempting to gain more positions. This is not the result I was hoping for, but I promise to work hard to seize another opportunity like this in the future.

Unfortunately, I experienced a crash in turn four after serving a double long lap penalty. However, there are positives to take away from this situation. The race started promisingly, and I quickly regained my position at the front after the penalties. I felt fast and competitive, which allowed me to overtake many riders.
We demonstrated strength today, and I aim to maintain this momentum in the next race at Mugello. It's clear that I have the speed and competitiveness to perform well. Let's continue working hard, as this effort will eventually yield the desired results.
