Swedish star Freddie Lindgren admits he was gutted to let Boll Warsaw FIM Speedway Grand Prix of Poland victory slip through his grasp, but was content with a strong start to SGP 2019.

Fast Freddie finished second at a sold-out PGE Narodowy last Saturday, scoring 15 points to go second in the early World Championship table – one point behind Poland’s Patryk Dudek, who has 16.

Lindgren hit the front after a lightening start in the final, but caught a rut and straightened up, allowing Leon Madsen through to snatch the win.

Of course I’m really disappointed to lose a winning position. But I am also very happy with the way I was racing, with my points and with the way our team worked together.

While the Orebro-born racer would have loved to land his second Warsaw win in three years, the world No.3 was pleased with a strong start to his series.

He said: “Overall, I am very happy. These GPs are super intense. I really enjoy racing in front of these crowds, in this atmosphere and on this track.

“But it is very intense. You have to go 100 percent for all four laps and stay calm. I was disappointed not to win after the start I made in the final. I made a huge mistake.

“Of course I’m really disappointed to lose a winning position. But I am also very happy with the way I was racing, with my points and with the way our team worked together.

“What happened in the final was just a mistake from myself. I hit a rut in the wrong position – it was my fault.

“I’ve had great success in Warsaw in the past. I’ve had a win and a third before, so now I have completed the set with a second – I’m looking at the positive things!”

Lindgren wasn’t the only Swede to star in Warsaw as Antonio Lindback reached the semi-final, scoring 10 points on a very positive return to the World Championship after a year out.

Next up for Sweden’s finest is the Slovenian SGP in Krsko on June 1.
