Motorsports – Motorcycle rider Schrötter gets half a point in the World Cup – sport

Buriram (dpa) – MotoGP pilot Marcel Schrötter has just finished the points at the Grand Prix of Thailand.

The 29-year-old from Landsberg earned a half-point 15th at Buriram because the Moto2 World Championship race had to be called off due to heavy rain. With two-thirds of the race distance not yet complete by the time the race was stopped, drivers received only half of the ratings. In the overall standings, Schrotter maintained eleventh place.

Italy’s Tony Arbolino was named winner of the 17th Grand Prix of the season ahead of Czech Filip Salak. Spaniard Aaron Canet finished third on the podium. The commander in chief remains the Spaniard Augusto Fernandez, who finished seventh.

After saying goodbye to his IntactGP team at the end of the season, Schrotter confirmed in Thailand that he will not be in the Moto2 class next year. “I’m going to change the track, but after so long here I see it as a fresh start,” the German said on ServusTV. He added, “I think at the Supersport circuit, I can have a long drive ahead of me in a Superbike.”

Oliveira wins the motorcycle race

In the last MotoGP race, which started late due to constant rain, Portugal’s Miguel Oliveira took the win ahead of Australian Jack Miller. World Championship captain Fabio Quartararo of France couldn’t handle the weather conditions at all and finished 17th out of points. His biggest rival, Italy’s Francesco Bagnaia, climbed 16 points in third, only two points behind with three races remaining. The next race will continue in two weeks at Phillip Island in Australia.
