Ryusei Yamanaka, Filip Salac and their teams have had nearly three weeks to recover since the American GP before they start the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix this coming Friday.
The MotoGP World Championship takes the CarXpert PrüstelGP team to the Marco Simoncelli World Circuit for the second time this year. As a replacement for the Grand Prix in Sepang, which had to be cancelled for 2021 due to the pandemic, the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix in the Italian region of San Marino is once again on the agenda.
At the first race in Misano, which was held just over a month ago, things did not go according to plan for either rider of the German CarXpert PrüstelGP team: Filip Salac had to retire early from the race after an incident with another rider, whilst for Ryusei Yamanaka the race was also one of the more difficult ones of the current season due to numerous collisions, which he just barely managed to avoid.
However, after the two weekends off, both riders return to Italy with a clear head and focus – the incidents of the first Misano race have been analyzed, processed and will be used purely as learning for the coming race weekend, on which they will now build up.
Filip Salac #12:
“Two weekends off is a long time – I’m all the more excited to be back on the bike soon. The last race in Misano was not the best – but I still like the track a lot, which was evident from the practice sessions and my personal progress during the first race weekend in Misano. I’m excited to see what we can achieve with the team this weekend.”
Ryusei Yamanaka #6:
“I’ve been on the bike almost every day since the race in Austin – so I’ve been training a lot and with that I’ve been trying to clear my head a bit. I’m more than ready to attack again and fight my way to the front. We will certainly also try some new things in terms of setup on the bike to overcome the challenges we had in America and at the last race in Misano.”
