Antonelli And Bastianini Prepare For Home Grand Prix At Fast And Flowing Mugello

This weekend the 2014 Moto3 World Championship arrives in Tuscany for the sixth round on the calendar and the home race for Junior Team GO&FUN Moto3’s Niccolò Antonelli and Enea Bastianini.

The Mugello track is a favourite for both riders, where the incredible atmosphere from the home fans gives them the extra motivation to perform. Enea Bastianini showed an excellent performance at Le Mans: the 16-year-old rookie will aim to build on his seventh place in France with another solid result on home soil. Having adapted quickly to the hard-fought Moto3 World Championship, Enea is currently 11th in the overall classification with 25 points.

His team-mate, Niccolò Antonelli, is confident that his home Grand Prix could stop the negative period that has been going on for four races: so far, the 18-year-old rider from Cattolica has in fact collected points only in the opening round in Qatar.

NICCOLO' ANTONELLI “I’m having a hard time, so I think that right now the best thing to do is to keep calm and face every Grand Prix without setting myself any goal: therefore, even at Mugello, I will not ask myself anything, apart from to stay as calm as possible. Now all the top 12 riders in the championship are very strong and they are showing very similar performance: it would be nice to be able to stay with them for the whole race. I love the Mugello circuit, and I always got a lot of satisfaction here, since I started racing: at Mugello, for example, I got my first podium in the Italian Championship. I’m very happy everytime I race here and I hope to collect another beautiful memory”.

ENEA BASTIANINI “It would be great to be able to stay again with the top riders in the championship, as happened at Le Mans: I already know the track very well, having competed here in 2012 with the 125cc, and also last year in the Moto3 Italian Championship Moto3. It’s a very wide track, so it’s important to take the right lines, then we’ll see how it goes”.

FAUSTO GRESINI “The Italian Grand Prix is always a very important race: on one hand, Bastianini will try to repeat the excellent performance showed in France, on the other hand, the home Grand Prix could be the right opportunity for Antonelli to find the right direction after some negative races. We will follow Niccolò very closelu: in this moment he needs a full support from the team: after all, we also need him and we want to see him again performing at the highest levels. This one won’t be an easy race for Enea who, however, he showed more than we expected so far, so we have a great confidence in him, albeit without putting too much pressure on him”.
