Bastianini: “Pole in our home Grand Prix is fantastic"

Bastianini: “Pole in our home Grand Prix is fantastic'

Enea Bastianini makes the best start possible to his home GP, claiming pole position for Sunday’s race.

For the third time in 2015, Enea Bastianini will line his Gresini Racing Team Moto3 Honda up in pole position. The Italian is hungry for a good result at the Gran Premio TIM di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini, keen to impress the thousands of Italians fans set to flood into the costal circuit on Sunday. A good base setting has ‘The Beast’ confident of a strong result and is hopefully of claiming his first Moto3™ World Championship win at home on Sunday, despite being Danny Kent’s (Leopard Racing) closest title rival he’s yet to take a win.

The young Italian raced from 17th to fifth in 2014’s Moto3™, demonstrating clear outright pace and his boosted grid position this year will no doubt help his race. It’s not just Kent that Bastianini will have to battle with as several KTM riders are benefitting greatly from chassis upgrades. Turn 10 may also play a major factor in the race, many riders in all three classes having fallen victim to the fast corner. With the new Misano surface, riders are pushing harder through there and finding the limit has been difficult

Enea Bastianini: “I’m very happy! Getting the pole position in our home Grand Prix is fantastic for me, for the team and for all the fans. A result that gives us even more motivation ahead of tomorrow’s race. We can count on a good base set-up, but we still want to try to improve some details, because we need to be on top form if we want to try to win tomorrow. We will give our maximum to succeed, that’s for sure: we got close to victory many times and it would be nice to be able to get it here in Misano.”
