(cafetheology.org) – In the rainy Grand Prix of Misano, KTM first recorded a double-digit figure in the world championship. Bradley Smith scored his first top 10 result. Team-mate Pol Espargaro came in eleventh place for eleven seconds. Thus the Austrian team collected eleven World Cup points and equaled in the team evaluation with Aprilia. Although Marc Marquez (Honda) missed a one-minute lead in the finish line, the RC16 had previously been on the road for only 20 laps in the rain. "Bradley and Pol have a clever strategy," praises Teammanager Mike Leitner its drivers. The Sunday was frantic, because it was only the 20-minute warm-up to prepare for the wet track. "We also had a lot of respect for the boys in the garage, so we had to prepare a lot for the racetrack after the warm-up training, it worked and we got the best result as a team." For the sixth time in a row KTM now collected world championship points. On the side of Smith, the collaboration with his new crew chief Esteban Garcia is always better. From grid 22, the Briton did not make any big mistakes and kept moving forward. "It was important that you stay sitting, because then you would collect points," Smith calls the simple strategy. "I tried to be smart from the start, but the view was bad at the start, and there was plenty of water on the track." "When it dried up, it was getting better and I had chased Folger and Pol from the race "I am really happy that I got it on Sunday," smiles Smith about his success story. "We also need to bring this into the remaining dry race, things are moving in the right direction, and it was a good day." Espargaro did not find an optimal feel for his RC16 on dry training days. The low grip added the rest. "I've done everything in the race," says the Spaniard. "The track conditions were similar to those in the warm-up, but the track was not as strong as the warm-up, but we did not have much data for the race after the short warm-up but we did not know what was going on in the next racetrack.
