The fifth Grand Prix of the 2023 MotoE World Championship took place in the evocative setting of the Silverstone circuit, one of the most demanding tracks in the MotoGP championship.

It was an exciting stage for the Spezzino rider, who aspired to get back into the fight for the podium after the two difficult weekends at Sachsenring and Assen.

Kevin started the weekend with an excellent qualifying on Friday, qualifying directly for Q2 and gaining fourth position on the starting grid.

In the first race he started cautiously, gradually building up his pace and starting to overtake from the second lap.

He soon took the lead on the third lap and fought determinedly for the podium.

Despite a tight competition, he managed to conquer the second position, coming close to victory by just 0.124 thousandths against the Supersport World Champion, Randy Krummenacher.

This result brought the SIC58 team to the world podium for the second time in 2023.

In the second race, with the track starting to dry out, the SIC58 team decided to fit slick tyres.

However, unexpected rain shortly before the start forced the team to change tactics and opt for wet tyres. Unfortunately, this situation didn't allow Kevin to break in the "rain" tires on the opening lap, forcing him to start with new tires compared to his rivals.

After a rider crashed at turn 1 in the early stages, he managed to get back into the race without serious consequences.

Despite the efforts, he finished the race in ninth place, thus missing the opportunity to fight again for the podium.

Thanks to the 27 points earned this weekend, Kevin has climbed up the championship standings, approaching the world top 5. With six races still to go and 150 points up for grabs, the challenge for the podium remains open.

Kevin Manfredi: "I started with the determination to get back to the top of the standings and I'm glad I did. Both in the dry, where we took fourth place in qualifying, and in the wet, where we took our second podium of the season, I felt at ease. I will never forget my first podium at Mugello, but I came close to winning here, which gives me extra energy for the next rounds, where I will aim to stay constantly in the lead positions."

After a week off, Kevin Manfredi is ready to get back on track in the sixth Grand Prix of the MotoE World Championship in Austria, where he will try to climb further in the standings.

Kevin thanks all the sponsors and technical partners of the 2023 season.
