After yesterday’s second-place finish with Chaz Davies, the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team stepped on the podium once again in Phillip Island with Davide Giugliano. The Italian rider took third place thanks to a late push, while his teammate Chaz Davies crashed out with a few corners left to go while fighting against Jonathan Rea, who eventually took the victory, finishing in 10th place.

The race itself was similar to the one held on Saturday, with a tight group fight in which both Giugliano and Davies showed their grit. Due to a fortuitous contact between Giugliano and Sykes with six laps to go, Davies and Rea were able to create a small gap. The Welshman took the lead with one lap to go but could not pull away, and lost the front at turn 4 while trying to pass his rival on the brakes. Giugliano, on the other hand, stormed back in the late phases, passing Sykes, Guintoli, and finally Hayden with a spectacular move in the penultimate corner. The Italian, at his first official outing in seventh months after a serious back injury, thus claimed his first podium of the season.

The Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team will be on track once again in two weeks’ time in Chang (Thailand) for the second round of the season.
