MotoGP, Acosta: "Without the lowerers, riders will have life a little easier."

"The reduction in displacement and aerodynamics, on the other hand, will not make much difference. We have to fail many more times to learn, we live a good moment but negative ones will also come." Then joking: "In Le Mans always fast but I collected only crashes, this year I would like to finish the race."

MotoGP: Acosta:

Pedro Acosta is preparing to tackle the fifth round of the season in MotoGP, and he does so as fourth in the standings with a treasure trove of an impressive 69 points, first KTM behind three Ducati GP24s. A result to be proud of as a rookie and one that surely also makes the KTM family happy, which sees in the Spaniard a future as a protagonist in MotoGP. The champion from Mazarron, however, continues to show himself aware of his limits despite the fact that he is proving that pure talent on a competitive bike can have his say among riders with more experience in the premier class. The Spaniard then jokes about the hostility of the French track, which has not given him great satisfaction in recent years, and shrugs off any technical reflections on the new technical regulations; what matters to him and his KTM is to be fast in the corners.

"Le Mans is a circuit I've always enjoyed," Acosta interjects, " every time I've come here in the last three years I've always been fast but crashed, so I'd like this to be the first season I finish a race here, " the Spaniard jokes, "it's kind of the second home GP after Jerez for us in the Tech 3 team so it will be nice to share this weekend with the team and the fans.

The new regulations for 2027 are causing a lot of discussion, some people like the new features and some less, what do you think?
"I haven't thought about it too much honestly, certainly changing the displacement won't change things too much, while removing the devices instead will have a bigger impact and make things a little bit easier for us drivers, it's often not easy to manage them between front, rear and at the start. Also the partial reduction of aerodynamics I don't think will affect as much as you think, because in the end what matters for us is cornering speed."

Did you expect to be this far ahead in the standings already at the beginning of the season?
"I don't think anyone in the team expected this. However, I think we still have a long way to go, we are just starting out and we still have to fail many times to learn . We are experiencing a positive moment now, but I know that negative ones will also come sooner or later."
