Simeon: “We have the potential to fight at the top”

Federal Oil Gresini Moto2’s Xavier Simeon believes he can fight for race wins after a successful test at Aragon.

The French Grand Prix is also a kind of “home race” for Belgian Xavier Simeon, who took his first Moto2 podium finish here back in 2013.

The team is fresh from a successful testing session carried on the circuit of Aragon, during which Simeon put in a lot of laps to further refine the set-up of his Kalex machine, looking for further improvement after the good fifth place finish obtained at Jerez.

Xavier Simeon:
“At Aragon we made two very positive days of testing, in which we were able to verify the performance of some new suspension solutions from Ohlins. We’ve been fast and consistent during the whole test, so we arrive in Le Mans aware that we have the potential to fight at the top. I like the track very much and this weekend there will be many fans who will come from Belgium to support me, so I hope I can give them a podium finish.”
