Oliveira: “Anything can happen at Barcelona”

Oliveira: “Anything can happen at Barcelona”

Miguel Oliveira has always been quick at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, but he knows just how unpredictable racing there can be.

Oliveira arrives with his confidence bolstered by the first Grand Prix win of his career, taken at the most recent round at Mugello. The Portuguese rider also has fond memories of Barcelona, as in 2012 he finished the Moto3™ race in third place to claim a first World Championship podium.

Miguel Oliveira: “The Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit is a special track, as it is where I took my first podium in the World Championship. I hope to enjoy myself on the bike, just as I did at Mugello, and go on the attack right from the first practice session. Although it is a track where I've always been very fast, it’s not one of those that I like the most. Anything can happen at Barcelona and one mistake can prove costly, because it's hard to recover ground lost when you make an error. I do not think that at the end of the race there will be a large group at the front. That’s why we must be consistent during the race and avoid mistakes if we are to have a chance to be up there. We've taken the pressure of ourselves after our first win, so I hope this helps us to achieve the best possible result.”
