MotoGP, Marini: "Le Mans Grand Prix is another opportunity to make improvements"

"It is important to make the most of every opportunity." Joan Mir: "In Jerez we achieved the maximum that we could, doing the same this weekend is the goal."

MotoGP: Marini:

Honda is trying to find a direction to follow, even at the cost of comung up against some dead ends. As happened in Jerez, where the riders rejected the new prototype taken to the race by Stefan Bradl. Monday's tests served to clarify the ideas a bit and prepare for the Le Mans GP. Clearly, in this situation, expectations cannot be too high. For Marini and Mir, the two official team riders, the priority is to use the weekend to build for the future and take advantage of any opportunities.

"Another opportunity for us to make improvements - was Luca's positive attitude - Myself and my team are giving our maximum to make progress and we enter the French GP weekend with the same intensity. It's important to stay focused and make the most of every opportunity we are presented. The weather in Le Mans can be quite wet and cold, so let's see what we can achieve."

His teammate Joan is also striving to see the glass half full.

"Finally when we look at what happened in Jerez, we have to be content: we achieved the maximum that we could," underlined the Majorcan, "Doing the same again this weekend is the goal. Le Mans is a different kind of track, with lots of slow-speed corners, so we need to work to setup for that as much as possible. It's true it has been a bit of a tricky track for me in the past, but we approach with our goals and our plan this weekend."
