LCR Honda CASTROL replacement rider Iker Lecuona has crossed the line 16th at the Grand Prix of Malaysia.
The Spaniard gained some positions immediately at the start of the race and fought against rivals to get the best possible result. Taking a step forward compared to yesterday's Sprint and improving the feeling with the bike's front end, Lecuona has finished 16th after the 20 laps at the Sepang International Circuit.
LCR Honda IDEMITSU rider Takaaki Nakagami has crossed the line 18th after a demanding race.
Not even a crash at the first stages of the race has prevented Nakagami from pushing and finishing it. The Japanese lost the front, but he managed to rejoin the race to accumulate as much information as possible to improve some areas on the bike to make a step forward for the last races of the season.
