MotoGP: Bezzecchi: “Mugello is out of the ordinary, the atmosphere will make the difference”

The masses came out in Milan for the home weekend of the two Mooney VR46 team riders, Marco Bezzecchi and Luca Marini, who are ready for the challenge at Mugello. Only one point from the top of the rankings after Le Mans, in which he reached his second MotoGP victory, Bez is ready to give it his all during these three weeks of consecutive races, with the aim of confirming his spot at the top of the championship.

I can’t wait to get on track. This track is out of the ordinary and, this time, it’ll be really special, perhaps even more so than the others,” Marco said. “We ended in a crescendo at Le Mans, demonstrating that we knew how to manage the weekend well, remaining focused and working hard. The goal is to start from there and find the same sensations from the first free practice. It’s our GP. The support of the fans, the emotions, and the home atmosphere will make the difference.

Marini’s weekend was, instead, a bit more uphill. Tomorrow, on the circuit, he’ll have to wait for the “okay” from his doctors, after injuring his right wrist in a fall in the French GP. 

I’m very happy to be able to get on the track at Mugello in front of such a special audience, the Italian fans, with this potential and with the possibility of being able to battle it out with the fastest during the weekend,” Luca said. “This track is one of the greatest in the world. One more reason to give it my all and leave behind the fall at Le Mans. These three weeks have been tough, I thank all the medical team that supported me. We had to work hard to fix the injury to my hand. Despite everything, we can really do well and start this round of three races in Europe on the right foot before the summer break.”
