The motorcycle world championship does not rest. After the Czech Republic Grand Prix last weekend, Esponsorama Racing will take on the Austrian Grand Prix this week at the Red Bull Ring-Spielberg circuit.
Located in the Styrian region, the Red Bull Ring-Spielberg offers a beautiful circuit located in the Austrian forests and characterized by steep slopes and unevenness. A total of 4,318 kilometres and ten turns make it one of the fastest tracks on the calendar.
Esponsorama Racing faces a new weekend of races with high expectations and motivation after the ‘pole position’ and the podium obtained by Johann Zarco in Brno, being the first of the team since his debut in the MotoGP class, and the great evolution that Tito Rabat is showing during this beginning of the season, doing a great job on his Ducati Desmosedici GP19.
The first two free practices of the Austrian Grand Prix will take place on Friday morning at 9:55am.
“After a nice Czech Republic Grand Prix, we arrive to Austria, a track that normally is good for Ducati, so I’m very curious to see my feeling on the bike. I still have many things to learn and I’m working on myself to control always better the bike and it seems that weather will be very changing, so it will be I think the first time I can ride the bike in wet. If the grip is quite OK and there are not surprises, even on wet I can be competitive. So really looking forward to start this Friday.”
“After the Czech Republic Grand Prix we had a few days to rest. From what we analysed in Brno we saw that in terms of fast lap and race pace we are not bad, although there is a lack of competitiveness in close competition and this is what we will try to improve here in Austria. I am very motivated and looking forward to getting back on track.”
