The Green Energy Team rider, Héctor Barberà, arrives at the spectacular Australian track with a strong confidence, after he raced to a brilliant seventh place in the Malaysian Grand Prix last Sunday.

The Phillip Island weekend is, due to its proximity to the coast, frequently dominated by rapidly changing weather conditions. The forecast shows rain and cold for the next days and this poor conditions could shuffle the cards for all the MotoGP riders.

Despite that the Spaniard still has the mathematical chance of clinching the top ten finish in the World standing (with only 9 points separating him from Ben Spies) and he will try to attain also this goal.

Héctor Barberà – Pramac Racing Team Rider

“I’m really excited to riding at the Phillip Island circuit, one of my favourite and probably the most beautiful track on the MotoGP calendar. I have good memories on this track, as in 2009 when I achieved a great second place with my Aprilia 250cc and I always enjoy riding there.

After the last round in Malaysia, where we caught a positive result despite it was a difficult race due to the tricky weather conditions, I’m really determined to finish on the top ten again. I know it's not going to be easy, but I will try my best!”
