Bastianini: “This time it will be definitely easier”

Bastianini: “This time it will be definitely easier”

Enea Bastianini hopes for more success at COTA, after achieving a Moto3™ podium during the first round in Qatar.

The Gresini Racing Team Moto3 has been a key player in the first Grand Prix of the year in Qatar. Enea Bastianini missed the victory by just 27 thousandths of a second after a spectacular comeback from 21st on the grid.

In the United States Bastianini can count on an increased knowledge of the Honda NSF250RW Moto3 machine, so the goal is to reach a good level immediately during practice in order to get a good starting position on the grid and try to claim another good team result in the race.

Enea Bastianini:
“I can’t say that the Circuit of the Americas is one of my favourite tracks, but all-in-all I like it and last year I got my first championship points there, making a good race. In Qatar we could learn more about the bike and the weekend ended with a beautiful comeback, so we are confident ahead of this race. We start from a more solid base, so this time it will be definitely easier to try to get a better position on the starting grid”.

Fausto Gresini - Team Manager:
“In Qatar we started the season very well, with Bastianini who ran a great race missing the win for nothing. Last year in Austin, Bastianini collected his first points at his second race in the World Championship: therefore, considering this and the recent result obtained in Qatar we look forward to this race with the utmost confidence. Anyway, I think that Enea should just think to have fun riding, without thinking too much about the result; the championship is still long and if he will maintain the right calm and attitude he will surely continue to do well.”
