The first season of the new Moto2 category is about to end with only the Valencian GP of 2010 to go ahead. The crown of the first Moto2 world championship has already gone to Toni Elias, but the order from 2nd to 5th is still to be defined, with four riders still in the hunt for the honours. Among these there is also our Simone Corsi, who is in 5th place and is not yet resigned from taking 4th place from Swiss rider Thomas Luthi. Equally charged is Alex De Angelis, who has collected three podiums and a fourth place from the last four races, where he has also been the rider who has collected the biggest amount of points, and he could also take 6th place in the riders' championship. In the world manufacturers' championship MotoBI has already secured 4th place.

Simone Corsi
"It has been a positive season, for sure one of the best in my career, I still have some hopes for the 4th place and as I don't have anything to lose at this point I will certainly try to attack. The last races didn't go as well as I'd expected, the crash in Australia and the rain in Estoril prevented me from good results, meaning that I need to improve even more. I like Valencia, I'll start with the awareness that I need to find an aggressive approach to practices and qualifying in order to set-up in the best way my machine for the race."

Alex De Angelis
"Valencia is a nice track that I link to positive memories, this is the last chance for this season and I'll give my best. In the last four races the worst result was the 4th place I took in Motegi and after three podiums in a row I feel excited but also aware of our potential thanks to the technical package I have available. I've found a good feeling with the MotoBi since the very beginning, I don't care about the troubles I have had in the first half of the season, I'm only interested in closing the season with a good performance."
