NINE POINTS FOR CORSI AT THE MOTUL TT ASSEN
SIMONE CORSI #24 7°
“At the end of this hard weekend we can be satisfied with the result. The grid position did not help us, I think that with a better grid position we could have fight for the podium. I missed some overtaking during the first laps so I lost the possibility to reach the top riders. With the team we did very well solving the problems had in the warm up. Now we have 2 weeks before next race in Germany. I cannot wait for Sachsenring circuit, I feel good with that track!”
QUALIFYING PRACTICE OF THE GP MOTUL TT ASSEN: SIXTH ROW FOR CORSI
The Moto2 qualifyng practice at Gp Motul TT Assen has just ended. The rider couldn’t carry no more than 8 laps, because the official tests were marked by rain. Tomorrow he will start from 16th positions. When Simone Corsi was going to take feeling with the dry track, he had to return to the box for bad weather conditions. In that moment the wet tires were obligatory but the laps times of the first riders were too far away. Then the team considered unnecessary to put rain tires because they couldn’t improve the lap time done with the dry track. Hoping that tomorrow’s weather will be better, team and rider will make their best to be more competitive.
“Today was a little strange day because weather conditions have changed during the qualifyng session. Unfortunately, we missed the opportunity to score a good lap time when the track was still almost dry. Then, when it started to rain, it was impossible for me to take a better lap time because of the rain. Tomorrow morning will be very important to find the right setup in the warm up to make a good start. We are all sure we can do a good race”.
FRIDAY FREE PRACTICE SESSIONS OF GP MOTUL TT ASSEN
The first day of the Gp Motul TT Assen weekend has just ended. Simone Corsi has clocked his best time of the day in 1 ‘38.760 ranking in 11th place. The rider has finished the first day of practice at 7 tenths from the first. He has struggled during all the practice to improve the pace, but Assen circuit is one of the most difficult of the season due to the highest average speeds of the championship. It will be very important to improve the feeling with the bike SF16 to allow Simone to be ready for the last test of tomorrow and for the qualifying.
“Compared to this morning the feeling with the bike has improved but we are still payng a gap of 7 tenths from the first. We have to keep working with the grip to improve and close the gap from the first, especially the times in T3 and T4 sectors where we are losing more time. The team is working well and we are all confident about the latest practice of tomorrow”.
DAUNTING RACE FOR SIMONE CORSI AT BARCELONA GP
“It has been a difficult weekend and not easy to face. I had some problems with the grip that I wasn’t able to control and that penalized me during all the sessions and the race as well. I want to thank my Team that worked very hard trying to solve any problem”.
SIMONE CORSI WILL START FROM THE FOURTH ROW
“The last free practice session of this morning was fundamental for me to get in touch with the changed track. We could do a better qualifying session, but the lack of grip did not let me to increase the pace. We still have few time to get ready and be more competitive before the race”.
FRIDAY FREE PRACTICE SESSIONS OF GRAN PREMI MONSTER ENERGY DE CATALUNYA
“We have started the racing weekend with the same bike setup of the last races as I felt confident with it. But the racetrack of this circuit is complicated, limited grip and some holes that don’t help riders. So, the team is now working on the bike finding the right setup for tomorrow. I am very sorry for Luis, I cannot find the words to express the void left within each one of us”.
