“This will be my first race in the FIM MotoE World Cup. In the last months, we completed two good tests in Jerez, so I think that we will be able to achieve good results this weekend. The goal is to be on the podium and get the maximum number of points. I feel ready, we proved that we had a fast pace in the Andalusian track. The race simulation we did in early April was very positive for us. I will give my best in my Avant Ajo MotoE debut.”
