Monster Yamaha Tech3 Ready For Midseason Battle

Sachsenring is a highly unique venue which the MotoGP paddock has visited again since 1998, located deep in the Saxony hills, eight kilometres west of Chemnitz. The historical German event which sees his roots reaching back until the 1920s, has always promised intense racing action also due to the tight nature of its modern layout which was originally built in 1996 . The 3671 metre anti clockwise circuit consists of 10 left and only 3 right corners including the legendary Omega and Waterfall ones and even if being the slowest circuit on the calendar it attracts a hugely enthusiastic crowd in what is always a memorable event for fans and riders alike.

After the eventful weekend in Assen Pol Espargaro will aim to further his positive drive forward and continue to close the gap to the factory MotoGP bikes, plus adding another top five finish to his impressive performances in his rookie season. On the other hand, British rider Bradley Smith will be seeking to build upon his best points scoring finish of 5thin Texas this year and continue his positive momentum from the Catalunya test to clinch honours as the leading satellite rider at round 9 of the 2014 MotoGP World Championship.

Pol Espargaro Pol Espargaro
Championship : 7th

Points : 58
Espargaro - Mugello - 2014"Last race was my first experience in the wet aboard a MotoGP bike and despite the end result not being a true reflection of my potential on the bike, I still felt the best I have so far this year on the Yamaha which included topping the opening practice session. I feel really optimistic of a strong result this weekend, whatever the weather decides to do and last year I obtained a 3rd place podium finish on my way to the World Championship title in Moto2. With the track being very tight and with not much of a straight, there’s no rest therefore we are on it for the entire race, so for sure it will be a challenging one. I feel strong aboard the bike at the moment and I am convinced that I can at least challenge for, if not clinch, the position of the leading satellite bike in Germany."

Bradley Smith Bradley Smith
Championship : 10th
Points : 48
Smith - Mugello - 2014"After the conditions caused a bit of a strange race at Assen, I was still able to put together a really strong race pace when the track dried out which is really positive. At Sachsenring I hope to emulate this and scoop a top result. My joint best position of 6th was achieved here last year and with the nature of the circuit suiting the Yamaha I'm confident we can do even better this week. The tyres will be vital at this track as there are 10 left corners but only 3 right, plus it could rain, yet I remain certain of my ability aboard the Yamaha and I know we can do well this race for round 9 of the championship. I am primed and ready to gun for a top five this weekend, I look forward to putting on a great show plus riding the waterfall again!"
