LCR Honda IDEMITSU rider Takaaki Nakagami has finished 18th on Saturday’s Sprint at the Lusail International Circuit.
After suffering a crash during qualifying, Nakagami had to start from the back of the grid to face a comeback Sprint. He made a decent start and recovered some positions, but unluckily, a drop on the rear tyre prevented him from pushing. Tomorrow’s race will mean another chance to go and fight for the points.
