Folger: "I still want to win the top Rookie battle"

German eager to make up some ground at Aragon

Jonas Folger (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) crossed the line in ninth at Misano in the wet to take a good haul of points, but after some more difficult races - including being unable to start the race at Silverstone - the German is aiming to do some catching up this weekend in the points battle to be Rookie of the Year. Having already taken a podium in his rookie season, at home in Germany, Folger has shown some serious pace - and really likes MotorLand Aragon.

Jonas Folger: "As always, I am looking forward to the Aragon round because I think it’s a beautiful track and one of the nicest circuits that we visit. For sure we are going to get the typical Spanish weather there, plus the layout is great and it’s a lot of fun to ride. There is a good mix of corners and hard braking areas, plus a long straight, so overall, it’s a track that I really like. I hope that we are going to score more points at Aragon than we did in Misano because I still want to win the Top Rookie battle in the championship. We lost some ground in the last few races so we have to make up some points but I will fight."
