Everything is now ready to move into the hot summer of the Moto2 World Championship! The JiR Team is ready to warm-up its engines for the French weekend with its usual enthusiasm and passion.

Simone Corsi is confident to be able to improve on the excellent result at Jerez. The 5th place finish in Spain showed how the rider from Rome is increasing the feeling with his MotoBI and confirmed the positivity of the job completed so far. It is now very important to approach qualifying with the same determination and efficiency in order to get a better position on the starting grid.

Mattia Pasini is instead looking for redemption. The difficulties suffered in Spain tested the temper of the rider from Rimini, who is now anxious to get the throttle back in his hand to show his true value. The two week break has been helpful for him to think about what needs to be done to be competitive again.

But, the championship is still a long one and it is important to gain points in each race.

Gianluca Montiron -- CEO JiR

"There has been a lengthy break from one race to the other and this was good for the new Moto2 machine. We have worked hard exploiting the data we collected in Qatar and Spain and we'll continue in this way making little improvements in order not to move backwards, but continue our gradual progress forward. Technical improvements are always possible, but we truly feel we're already at the same level as our fiercest competitors. Now it's time for the riders to adapt to the bike and exploit its full potential, using their determination and skill to make the difference. Simone Corsi is strong at the moment, he's improving his feeling with the bike and this is confirmed by the progress he has made. Mattia Pasini had more trouble to contend with in Spain but I'm confident he will be able to return to the head of the pack. The team will have to work hard to put both riders in the position to claim a good grid position in qualifying. We know that if they can't start from the front it will be very hard to catch the leading pack."

Le Mans is an historical circuit for motorcycling: a name that immediately brings to mind the glorious 24-Hour races, but it is also now a popular event on the MotoGP calendar. The track is not one of the hardest for the riders, but it needs a sharp and effective setting to handle the hard acceleration and braking zones effectively.
