GP OF CHINA

Let s fly to China after almost 2 months of stop.

 China that sees Alex with the most wins in history on Chinese waters.

Two months that have led to a long work to close the gap with the strongest pilots, with the construction of two new boats shipped for the occasion in China to try to give and do more.

But history teaches that it's not all that simple.

New Xiangyang location and new circuit, which tests everyone.

It is hard work for the Team Victory that fails already from the first tests to be in the top 10.MA DO NOT SPRING.

You work and work, but all this work leads to little, the lack of power leads Alex to make laps on laps to his maximum, but that will lead him to get a poor eighth position on the starting grid.

The disappointment is so much but we know that Alex can best give it to the race because he is the one who leaves nothing to chance.

But even for this race it will not be like that.

Bad start with the engine that struggles to light up, and at the first buoy Alex is sixteenth, unnecessary attempts to overtake to gain some position, lacking power and nothing can be done, the points area is impossible to reach and also for this race the withdrawal is obvious and after a fortnight Alex with regret is stopped at the pier.

What to say.

Hard year, hard to send down, you continue to work but it is hard to move forward.

Still only 3 races at the end of the World Cup and only 9 points for the Dubai rider.

These will be crucial months that will lead to the next stage in India, where it is hoped even if hope is of little use to climb at least on a podium for morale and to find the right path for the 2019 season.
