160418_03

Race One in Assen ended in a bittersweet way for the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team. While Chaz Davies took second place after a long, thrilling battle with championship leader Rea, Davide Giugliano retired.

Starting from third and sixth position respectively after lapping in dry conditions for the first time in Superpole, both Giugliano and Davies were quick off the blocks, joining the front just behind the factory Kawasakis. Davies then rapidly climbed the rankings, posting the fastest lap with a 1:36.486 in lap 2 and taking the lead shortly after. Giugliano, on the other hand, did not find an optimal feeling, progressively losing ground and eventually opting for a pit-stop, only to retire with five laps to go.

Davies, who was leading until four laps to go, was hindered by front-tyre wear and could not try a decisive maneuver during the last lap. Thanks to his fifth podium finish in 2016, the Welshman consolidated his second position in the general standings (125 points), where Giugliano currently sits in seventh position (56 points). Race 2 is scheduled for 13:00 CET.
