MotoGP: Oliveira Expects To Continue Fighting For Top Positions

Red Bull KTM Tech3 duo yearning for Misano arrival
Following the historic first premier class win for Miguel Oliveira, his home nation Portugal and the entire Red Bull KTM Tech3 crew at the Red Bull Ring just about two weeks ago, the entire squad is impatient to arrive at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli this week in order to maintain the strong form shown earlier. With two days of testing at the same venue in June, Oliveira feels well prepared to deliver another extraordinary result.

Likewise, Iker Lecuona eagerly awaits the upcoming three back to back races, of which two are taking place in Misano, while the entire paddock moves to Barcelona, Spain for the third round. The MotoGP rookie concluded the latest two Grand Prix’ inside the top 10 of the ultra-competitive class and targets to continue his fruitful work this weekend, which traditionally starts with Free Practice 1 at 9:55 local time on Friday.

Championship: 9th

Points: 43

“I’m obviously exited and inspired to go to the September round. I think it’s going to be physically tough to handle three weekends in a row again, but we had a good rest and we are for sure motivated to start working again. To begin at a track where we’ve been testing before in June and where we have information, I think we can do very well in the races. I just expect to keep our level, that we showed in Spielberg and keep fighting for the top positions.”

Championship: 17th

Points: 13

“For Misano I want to follow the way we found the last two rounds. I like our work inside the garage a lot, I learned, I improved and I finished the last two races with two top 10 results. I know, it’s not always easy and possible to do that, but I’m also sure now, that it is a realistic objective for us. If we can continue our good work with the bike and continue to learn, I’m sure it will be achievable to land inside the top 10 again, although my main target is to finish the race, enjoy it and end up inside the points.”
