Antonelli confidence boosted in testing

Antonelli confidence boosted in testing

Niccolo Antonelli was extremely upbeat as he travelled away from Almeria earlier this week, having made much progress with GO&FUN Gresini Moto3 during the latest test gathering for the lightweight class of the World Championship.

The Cattolica youngster took the opportunity to make further modifications setup-wise en route to posting the quickest Moto3™ lap of the test with 1’39.58.

“I’m very happy because we did a very good job over these two days,” the Italian began. “I was curious about getting on the bike and now I can say that it's really good! Today I continued working on the setup and for the moment I'm managing to adapt the bike to my needs and my riding style. This gives me great confidence for the upcoming test, where we will try to further improve the already very good feeling. Now I will spend a winter of training, but I cannot wait to get back on the bike.”

In 2013, Antonelli’s second full season in Moto3™, he demonstrated flashes of impressive speed with the likes of a front row qualifying position in Malaysia.
