It seemed to be the right race to get back to playing the leading role, since he was starting from pole position. Instead, his ambitions went up in smoke. A bitter Saturday for Chaz Davies who, after not even one lap from the start, was forced to raise the white flag. In the stretch that leads to the descent of the Acque Minerali, the Ducati Panigale V4 rider fell silent. It’s not the first time that something like this has happened to Chaz, given that in Buriram he was already forced to retire on Sunday in Race 2.
Once back in the pits, there was lots of anger from n. 7, who threw his gloves and didn't spare his disappointment in words.
