However, the performance shown in the previous races makes the rider from Barcelona be optimistic about this weekend. On the other hand, Karel Abraham arrives at Silverstone motivated after finishing in Top15 in Austria two weeks ago where he achieved a well deserved point.
“Silvestone is one of the racetracks that should fit me quite well. It has mostly fast corners and the track is quite wide. I am looking forward coming back there and Racing. Hopefully it will not rain. We were very unlucky last year as the rain and the asphalt situation did not let us race, but since then the track has been resurfaced and I believe we will have a lot of fun racing there again!”
“I really want to race in Silverstone, it is a track that I like very much and in which I made, in my opinion, the best race of my life in 2014. I hope that the weather is on our side although in England it is known that it is difficult to make a forecast. We had a couple of consistent races in which we have been close to score points but for one reason or another we got none. ”
