MAPFRE Aspar Team Moto2 - 06 GP Italia - Preview

“Mugello is a rider's circuit.” Nico Terol knows as well as anybody the nuances of one of the most technically challenging circuits on the MotoGP World Championship and the Spanish rider is hoping to put all of his experience to good use this weekend as he aims to turn around a difficult start to the season. The sixth round of the Moto2 campaign takes place at the long, fast and flowing track, featuring legendary corners such as Arrabbiata, in the midst of the Tuscan valleys. Tito Rabat and Mika Kallio have shared four of the five victories between them so far this season but there will be no end of riders looking to end their domination this weekend, not least the Italians riding in front of their passionate home support.

MAPFRE Aspar riders Jordi Torres and Nico Terol both love Mugello and they are hoping it can be the circuit where their respective seasons turn around. The pair struggled to find a set-up for Le Mans but know that the Italian circuit has completely different characteristics to the French one and should suit their bikes much better. Terol finished second after this circuit last season after fighting for the victory whilst his team-mate Torres took a solid sixth – results that give the MAPFRE Aspar pair grounds for optimism going into this weekend.

Jordi Torres: “We had a good result at Mugello last year with sixth place so we know it can be a good track for us and well suited to our bike. We had a few set-up issues in France so we will have to work very hard from this Friday to try and turn the situation around. We can't afford another result like Le Mans. We want to be closer to the front, we know we are capable of it and that's what we will be fighting for this weekend. We have to make drastic changes if necessary to get back on the right path but what is clear is that we can't stand around with our arms folded. Mugello is one of the most beautiful circuits on the calendar and it has a great atmosphere so I always love racing there.”

Nico Terol: “The start of the season has been much harder than I anticipated and we're suffering because things are not turning out as we hoped. But we have to keep working hard in order to turn the situation around. The objective is to enjoy ourselves on the bike again as soon as possible and I am sure that if I can have fun then we can find the way forward. I finished second last year at Mugello after fighting for the win so it's a good circuit for me and I love it there. It is a difficult track to get right and you need a perfect line to get a good lap time and to enjoy yourself. There are sections that require bravery, there are corners that link into each other and some really fast sections. Usually I enjoy riding this track so hopefully we can take the step we need to rediscover my confidence this weekend.”
