Bagnaia: “We go there with a clear plan”

Bagnaia: “We go there with a clear plan”

Mapfre Team Mahindra’s Pecco Bagnaia discusses his plan of attack for the Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya.

Mapfre Team Mahindra travel to Spain in high spirits and constantly improving form, thanks to the support of the Indian factory. After visiting the wind tunnels at the University of Perugia two weeks ago, the team were again putting in the extra yards last week with a two-day test at the Motorland circuit in Aragon. Pecco Bagnaia will be aiming to put the information to good use this weekend as he looks to build on third and fourth place finishes in the last two races, at a circuit where he has great memories from his time in the FIM CEV Repsol Championship.

Pecco Bagnaia: “I have always loved the Circuit de Catalunya ever since I started racing there in the Spanish Championship. It is where I scored my first podium and my first win in that series so I have good memories of it. I know it well, I already have my references and I know where you can make up time. It is a fast circuit where you need to let the bike run and carry a lot of corner speed, which suits my style. I haven't had as strong a race as I would like at Catalunya since moving up to the World Championship so hopefully that changes this weekend. We go there with a clear plan, a bike that is constantly improving and with the opportunity to achieve a great result. The straight is very long so once again I think we are going to see a large group at the front and an entertaining race.”
