“I am really looking forward to this Grand Prix. Misano is a circuit that I like and where I have achieved good results in the past. We continue with the same approach that we have followed so far. The goal is to fight for the win on Sunday and get good points for the World Championship. We arrive strong and we can have a good weekend there.”

“I feel fitter now. Misano is a very physical circuit and new to me with a Moto2 bike, so I have no expectations. We continue to take small but firm steps. We must continue with the good work that we have been carrying out since the end of the first half of the year. It could be a good circuit for us, but we have to continue working as we have done up to now.”
