Team SUZUKI ECSTAR is heading to Silverstone for the 12th round of the 2015 MotoGP series and the Grand Prix of Great Britain this weekend.
The last race in the Czech Republic left a bitter-sweet sensation for the final result as Aleix Espargaro finished in ninth and Maverick ViÌ±ales crashed out, but it gave the team positive feedback about the MotoGP‰ã¢ project's overall development.
In the UK, Espargaro will continue to seek the best feeling he can with his GSX-RR; a feeling which has seemed to be elusive since the summer break.
Thankfully, he did have a good connection with the machine in the first half of the season and there were some positives to come from Brno. His mood and trust in the project is still positive, which along with his enthusiasm will help him to find the confidence he needs with the bike.
‰ÛÏThe last races have been pretty tough for me, I struggled to find the same confidence that I had in the first half of the season and we still lack the finalisation of a proper set-up." Espargaro said. "The GSX-RR's base is very solid, I still feel it's a very good project, but we need to be more effective in how we prepare for both qualifying and the race.
"In Brno things went better than Indianapolis and we have found some direction that now we need to test and validate. Maybe the main variable in Silverstone will be the weather, we haven't raced in the rain and therefore we don't have any experience yet.
"At the same time we already have many aspects to focus on therefore I'm very eager to be riding again and proceed with the development work we have planned to do.‰Û
