"Ready for this back-to-back round after a positive weekend in Catalunya. I like the track in Misano, I have won there in the past, and last year I was on the podium. I am excited to be already jumping back on the bike, but we have a big target: trying to improve our Fridays so we can place ourselves in a better position in qualifying. It is not that easy to be already performing on Friday when you are a rookie, but this is our main target if we want to be able to start races more at the front to finish in the Top 10 more regularly.”
"I have been fast in the past in Misano, I won in Moto2, been on the podium in MotoGP, so the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli is a place where I like to go, and to ride. Of course, we are still catching back the speed, the feelings, and the physical form, but I think that after three rounds we are already in a much better place than one month ago, so let’s see how we will feel with the GASGAS RC16 this year. Looking forward to this round!"
"From the mediterranean sea to the adriatic coast, we have travelled 1200 km for the Gran Premio Red Bull di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini. The Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli has one of the fastest corners of the tour, and our strong aero will play a key role to stabilize the bike, so we are expecting strong results. Augusto Fernandez is heading to Misano with a lot of confidence after he scored his fourth Top 10 of the season in Barcelona. He finished on the podium last year in Moto2 here, so it is also a place that he likes a lot, and I think that a strong qualifying will help him target higher positions in the race. On his side, Pol Espargaro will come here with a revenge spirit. In Barcelona, his speed was very competitive, but for different reasons he could not finish both the Sprint and the race. His physical condition is now almost back to normal, he loves this place, so I think he can have a good weekend. As the sun will shine in the sky, I believe that we have everything in our hands to shine too in Misano this weekend."
