Espargaro: “The fans really help to motivate me”

Espargaro: “The fans really help to motivate me”

Monster Yamaha Tech 3’s Pol Espargaro is looking forward to racing in front of his home fans at the Gran Premio bwin de España.

Young Spanish rider Pol Espargaro will look to storm to a good result in front of his home fans as he aims to be the fastest satellite MotoGP™ rider in Sunday’s 27 lap race. Espargaro has won twice at the circuit in 125cc (2010) and Moto2™ (2012) and intends to add another strong finish to his successful tally in Jerez.

Pol Espargaro:
“After the first three races, we’re heading back to Europe and for the first GP in my home country, which is always brilliant. The fans really help to motivate me and in Jerez the support is incredible. So I want to repay them with a great show in the race. We have been a bit unlucky in the three opening rounds and couldn't perform at our best; therefore I wasn't able to challenge my teammate. Yet, the team is doing a great job and I feel confident on the bike so overall, I am ready to go and challenge for the positions that I want and need to be in. The track is fast and it’s such good fun to ride on the Yamaha, which really likes the rapid corners. We have a few things to work on, but we will hit the ground running, aim to qualify well and then see what happens. It was nice that we had a few days back at home to relax before we go to Andalusia for round 4 and the first European race, where I feel more confident about competing on these familiar tracks.”
