MotoGP: Morbidelli, in a race against time to his plane


Franco Morbidelli’s  race against time didn’t end once he crossed the finish line of the Mandalika GP. The Yamaha rider had to deal with the traffic on the island of Lombok (invaded by many MotoGP fans)  that was preventing him from reaching the airport on time to take his flight back to Italy.

Luckily, a police officer came to Franky's rescue and offered him a ride on his motorcycle. Morbido wasted no time, and he (naturally) got behind the wheel himself to complete his mission.

We don’t know how long it took for him to go from the circuit to the airport, but getting on the plane was almost like getting on a podium at this point.
