Cortese´s self confidence high before Aragon26/09/2012
Red Bull KTM Ajo Factory Racing Team heads into the five remaining Moto3 GPs of the season from great situation. Team´s German rider Sandro Cortese holds a lead of 46 points before the 13th GP of the season is held at Aragon circuit in Spain.
“The situation is good at the moment, ask we have a significant lead but it can also cause more pressures”, capsule says team leader Aki Ajo, “Now the most important thing is not to try any new things and change routines. We just have to be patient and continue the good work as we have done so far.”
Determined Ajo is known as a leader who aims uncompromisingly to the perfection. There are no short cuts to the success. Or even if there were they are used really fast.
“The competitiveness of the bike is good, so we don´t need to make any changes for Aragon. We will stay confident with the bike and try to find ideal settings for the weekend. We are doing great and have a strong confident towards each other’s”, Ajo refers to Cortese.
Cortese has gained big points during the whole season. His performance reliability has been extremely high as he has finished outside the podium only once when he was sixth in France.
The average amount of points Cortese has gotten from the races is 18,75. Riders get 25 points from the victory and Cortese has won so far three times.
“The last victory I took two weeks ago at Misano circuit in San Marino was without doubt one of the most important ones of my career so far. It gives a nice platform for Aragon.”
Cortese has become an expert of tight situations and he is mentally really strong and calm. Success has created success and his self confidence is high.
“We still take one race at a time, stay relaxed, enjoy and stay highly focused”, Cortese plans.
Cortese´s Red Bull KTM Ajo Factory Racing`s team mates Briton Danny Kent and Australian Arthur Sissis are also full of energy.
“I have a good basic pace and when I succeed that will be enough for the podium”, Kent says, “So far I just have had some misfortune as well but luckily I still have five GPs left to fix the situation. I have faith and believe that I´ll have a good end of the season.”
Sissis is having a good and steady first GP-season.
“I head to Aragon with positive mind because last weekend and especially the race day at Misano was good for me”, Sissis says, “We just have to remember that this is my first season in GP-series and everything is pretty much preparing work for the future. Comparing to that this season has been so far more than we expected.”
Kent is eight in championship standing and Sissis 16th.
