Barberá ready to build on Mugello progress in Germany

Barberá ready to build on Mugello progress in Germany

The Mapfre Aspar rider is confident following the Italian GP and test, and is hopeful of turning his optimism into a result at the Sachsenring this weekend.

Héctor Barberá is looking forward to riding in Germany, where he produced one of his best performances of the season last year. The Mapfre Aspar rider arrives on the back of a very positive seventh place last time out in Italy, in possibly his best MotoGP race yet. Barberá followed up with an even more impressive test on the Monday, when he set the fourth fastest time, and after gaining speed and confidence on his Ducati he is hopeful of continuing his form this weekend.

Héctor Barberá:
"We put on a good show last year in Germany so I hope to at least equal that. Both the race in Italy and the test on the following day were very good for us and we have turned the difficult situation we were going through around. Now I go to Sachsenring with energy and enthusiasm - we are ready for the next Grand Prix. The track is quite well suited to my riding style and even though it is short is has some fast and flowing corners. I like the track and tend to be quite fast there so now we have gone back to a setting that works everything comes easier, so I hope that continues this weekend. Our objective as always is to be amongst the leading Ducatis."
