2019 Italian GP - Rider statements
After Le Mans I am first of all hoping for good weather in Mugello! I like the circuit, even if we have not always had the best results there. If we keep working well from Friday as in previous rounds, I feel confident we can have a good race.
Our rivals are always very strong and very close at this circuit, it can be a fun race on Sunday!
We made good progress in Le Mans with the setting of the bike and were able to be much closer to the front. I’ve had similar success in the past in Mugello as to Le Mans, so I am hopefully of continuing to improve our position.
The Repsol Honda Team has been working very hard and I am sure soon I will be able to achieve some results to thank them.
