GP of Indianapolis, Qualifying: front row for Corsi!

Today saw the best performance in qualifying so far for Simone Corsi in the Moto2 World Championship. The Roman will have a clear track in front of him tomorrow at the Indianapolis Grand Prix, where he will start from the front row having gained 4th place with a time of 1'46"358. This is a just reward after the efforts made by the team and the rider to make the MotoBI even more competitive and result of the technical innovations that have been developed in the second part of the season.

Simone Corsi
"I'm happy for this front row it is what I needed to gain some confidence back and rewards the work done by the team. The technical changes we have developed, especially the new frame, are giving us good feedback and finally I can start at the front. We still have some details to fix, but we'll work on these in the warm-up. I like the circuit, I have learned it correctly and for tomorrow I'm expecting to enjoy a race in attack mode instead of recovery mode! Our objective is only one and I'll give 100% of myself to reach the target!"

Some more troubles for Team JiR's second rider Yusuke Teshima, dealing with the fallout of the crash he had during this morning's free practice. The Japanese rider was putting in a good performance holding a promising eighth place, but almost at the end he felt down, injuring his left foot, preventing himself doing better than a 37th position with a laptime of 1'48"275 in qualifying.
