Zaffelli: "Turn 10 was bumpy so riders used to go slower"

Zaffelli: 'Turn 10 was bumpy so riders used to go slower'

Jarno Zaffelli is the architect headed the laying of Misano’s new asphalt and is also responsible for designing the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit in Argetina.

Speaking with Israeli television station ‘Sport 5’, he revealed several details about the surface which makes its debut in the MotoGP™ World Championship this weekend.

“We are very satisfied with the reactions of the rider and I think we could break the 1’32 barrier this weekend,” he said ahead of Friday practice.

“There are some ripples that remain from the natural expansion of the lower layer of the track because some areas are over 40 years old. In most cases however the bumps are less and are no longer a major problem for the riders.”

Turn 10 has produced numberous falls throughout the weekend, 19 of the 24 falls on Saturday occurred at the corner. “The area before Turn 10 was very bumpy and riders used to be slower because of it,” concluded Zafelli.
