Tom Lüthi has to roll up the Moto2 field from behind if he wants to score points in the penultimate Grand Prix of his career. The 35-year-old from Berne finished on Sunday 24th at the Portimão circuit, only in the eighth row of the net.
After training on Friday, Lüthi spoke of “a tough and strange day at the same time.” Although he found good rhythm and initially got a feel for it, “I couldn’t get better and speed up,” said the 17-time GP winner. The hoped-for steps forward did not materialize for Lüthi in qualifying either.
