Smith: “The flowing nature of the circuit suits us”

Bradley Smith is hoping to repeat his strong performance at Le Mans in Mugello, at a circuit that plays to the strengths of his Yamaha.

Smith will aim to continue his positive form so far in 2015 at the Italian circuit, fresh from coming from a 6th place finish at the Tech3 team's home race in Le Mans. The British rider has closed the gap on the leading satellite bike position in the championship standings to within a point, and will seek to score another top result aboard the Yamaha YZR-M1 at the Mugello circuit.

Bradley Smith: "It's that time of the year when we visit the awesome Mugello circuit again. Riding this track is a real pleasure and the race event is one that everyone enjoys, especially as the crowd is always so passionate. The track is undulating and there is a huge straight which means some of the fastest top speeds of the year are set there. With regards to the Yamaha, the flowing nature of the circuit suits us and as long as I ride smoothly, I feel that we can clinch a good result. Last race, I was right in the hunt with Iannone and Marquez in the final section of the race, so I hope to be in a similar position this time around on Sunday afternoon. As always, we will try to hit the ground running and we will look to get everything set up as soon as possible so that we can have a strong qualifying which is vital in order to close the weekend with a positive result in the race."
