Jonas Folger (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) made a huge step forward in the Catalan GP, staying with the front four for much of the race and showing some impressive pace. With more positivity the following day in the test in Montmelo, Folger is geared up for Assen and hopeful it will suit the M1.
The Dutch GP is also the last race weekend before Folger's home race at the Sachsenring - an even bigger incentive to push hard for a good result once again:
Jonas Folger: “I’m sure that the Assen circuit is going to be positive for us because the track suits the Yamaha’s style and it is very meandering and flowing. However, I hope that the weather stays clear because, in Assen, it’s always a bit tricky and unpredictable with the rain. Nevertheless, the team and I want to continue in the same way that we did in Barcelona. We made a good step, which allowed us to improve and be consistent throughout the weekend. We did some great work there, so we fully intend to prove that we can do the same in the Netherlands to close the weekend with a strong result before we head to my home race.”
