“The races in Austria are always quite spectacular, but it is usually a good weekend. It is a very particular track with a lot of very strong braking, a lot stop and go and few curves. Let’s see how we perform this weekend, from the Repsol Honda team and HRC we are working hard to improve our situation. I’m interested to see what the new chicane looks like, the straight to the top of the hill has always been very fast so I think this will be very different. Our goal is to have a consistent weekend and qualify better, that’s the key.”
“It’s nice to race in Austria again, the fans always give me a warm welcome. I’ve had a good experience at this track in recent years, so it won’t be like Silverstone where I had to remember the track. With shorter layouts like this one, the gaps in MotoGP are even smaller, so you have to work to find every tenth, because it can make a big difference in practice and on the grid”.
