The Colombian rider Santi Hernández suffered a huge setback at the AirAsia British GP eve that will put him out of the Moto2 grid this weekend. The reason of this situation is due to the British embassy not issuing his Visa on time.

Raffaele de Rosa will be responsible to replace the young Colombian after the bureaucratic hinder. The large experience of the Italian rider and its great results make him to be the best candidate to sit on the FTR of the SAG Team and, both the team and De Rosa, hopes to be satisfied at the end of the weekend.

 

RAFFAELE DE ROSA (SAG TEAM // FTR):

“I am happy because this is a great opportunity to show my value in the world championship. I know that in just one GP and without tests to practice the job here is complicated but I hope to take advantage of the time to do my best. I also want to add that always I had curiosity to know how the FTR works, I always saw it as a good bike and now I have de occasion to test it and take a personal opinion of his behavior. I want to thank Eduardo Perales and I hope to have a good GP together.”
