Rins: “The pole position doesn’t matter”

Rins: “The pole position doesn’t matter”

Alex Rins continues his rapid rise to stardom in the Moto2™ World Championship.

Alex Rins (Paginas Amarillas HP 40) secures second on the grid for Sunday’s Octo British Grand Prix. In just his first year in the intermediate class Rins has gone from an occasional podium challenge to a consistent race winner and impressed many inside and outside the paddock with his ability. Rins has had great success at Silverstone during his time in the Moto3™ World Championship, securing two podiums including a win in 2014. But the Moto2™ victory will be a much more difficult goal to achieve, especially with Sam Lowes (Speed Up Racing) aiming for home glory from pole.

Alex Rins: “The pole position doesn’t matter, what matters is the race tomorrow. Hopefully we can battle for the first place but we’ll see what happens. It’ll be a hard race with Lowes, Zarco and Tito. Interesting for sure!”
