Aegerter gets injured in Aragon, Mulhauser not far off the points


The Moto2 Grand Prix of Aragon on the circuit of Motorland was affected by a first lap accident in which Dominique Aegerter (Technomag Racing Interwetten) was hit by Xavier Siméon from Belgium. The Swiss rider, after an initial examination in the medical centre of the circuit, was sent to a hospital in Alcañiz for a radiography. Thomas Lüthi (Derendinger Racing Interwetten) finished the race in a solid fifth position, while Robin Mulhauser (Technomag Racing Interwetten) finished 19th with a mixed feeling of satisfaction from finishing in the Top-20 and deception from having lost the group that was in the points too quickly. Frédéric Corminboeuf, the boss of the two Swiss teams, summarised this Sunday: “This is the ninth season for Dominique in the GP and in each one of them he has made a progress; then in these few months: he could have won in Indianapolis, where he got bumped, he was leading in Misano before Rins run into him and today it was Siméon, who touched him on the first lap. Having received first aid on the spot, Dominique went to the medical centre before he was transferred to a hospital in Alcañiz to undertake further examinations; he is complaining about his back and one hand. Robin’s race was quite positive, although he struggled at the beginning. It was a pity because he could have scored points again. As for Tom Lüthi, who was fifth, he did well although he also lost contact with those who were fighting for the third position on the podium at the beginning of the race. From a technical perspective, he made a step forward with his team this weekend and I am sure that he can give us some nice surprises in the next weeks.”

Fred Corminboeuf (Technomag Racing Interwetten): “Dominique suffered some small fractures to his spine, wrist and he is complaining about his ankle. He will be going to Switzerland on Monday by REGA.

Robin Mulhauser (Technomag Racing Interwetten, 19th): “I am disappointed today. My two starts were good but they closed the door on me in the first corner. On the second lap Siméon crashed and his bike went across the track; to avoid it I had to go off the line and as a result of that I lost contact with the group that was later fighting for the points. I learned a lot this weekend again and I know that if I can do a better qualifying, I will avoid this problem with the second half of the pack in the opening laps.”
