Team Suzuki Ecstar heads fro British GP

Posted:

The Silverstone circuit in England will be the host of the next round of the MotoGP World Championship, one of the longest tracks of the season and also one of only two ‰ÛÒ together with Austin ‰ÛÒ with a lap-time of more-than two minutes.

Team Suzuki Ecstar will get to UK this weekend with the experience and progress made in wet conditions after the recent Austrian and Czech rounds. The experience gained by the team in those difficult conditions was valuable and the earliest results were already seen in Brno when both Aleix EspargarÌ_‰Ûª and Maverick Vi̱ales‰Ûª performances improved consistently and positively.

The tricky weather conditions that usually characterise the British weather are not worrying the team anymore because of the improvements made by Suzuki‰Ûªs R&D department in Japan.
Maverick Vi̱ales‰Ûª
‰ÛÏMy expectations for Silverstone are positive, it has always been a good track for me and here I also did my first pole position," Vi̱ales recalled.

"I‰Ûªve always liked it a lot and I think for the Suzuki it can be a good track also. We have to work a lot, we did important improvements in latest races increasing our knowledge of the bike and finding some solutions in the set-up and electronics that can help me in tricky weather conditions.

"The first and last sectors are really nice, and there are some corners that will suit our machine‰Ûªs characteristics. The weather will paly a role, as always in England it is unpredictable, but the progress we‰Ûªve made makes me think that we can do a good race in any conditions," he concluded.

Aleix EspargarÌ_ is not expecting an easy day with the changable British weather always having to be factored in.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm not expecting an easy weekend as the weather conditions can vary suddenly and we‰Ûªll have to be very quick in adapting to the changes, and it will probably be cold," EspargarÌ_ said.

"It will be very important to try to exploit at the best any dry session we have in order to take advantage, and also to be very quick to find a positive base set-up. I like the track, very fast where the engine will need a good performance, but also it has very fast corners where our chassis can be an advantage," he concluded.
