It's time for Spain again in the Moto2 Championship, with the brand new GP of Aragon on the circuit of the same name. This is a completely new facility, called Motorland, which has been designed by Herman Tilke, the German architect that is also the brains behind many F1 circuits and who also designed the magnificent circuit of Portimao. Aragon is a real riders' circuit: a long straight, fast big curves, elevation changes, tight corners - it's a circuit that will stress the capabilities of both rider and machine's performance: especially in braking and acceleration. Simone Corsi and Alex De Angelis are determined to take their MotoBI machines to the highest level this weekend.

Simone Corsi
"I'm looking forward to racing in Aragon because it is a brand-new circuit. We had a test there after Barcelona but nobody has raced there yet, it will be interesting to see how things will go. We're in a good shape, I like the track because it's technical, it means it has the characteristics I like the most. Our performances deserve the podium once more, therefore we'll work hard in Aragon to pursue this objective and to bring home as many points as possible for the Championship; I'm fifth at the moment but the gap to the fourth is not impossible to reach."

Also in Aragon the second MotoBI of the team will be brought to race by Alex De Angelis, who is recovering from the bad accident he had in Misano and will have to get the confidence back and discover the new track's secrets.

Alex De Angelis
"From a physical point of view I feel good, I have no consequences after the crash I had at the San Marino GP, but I still feel the emotional marks from that accident. I got a little depressed about what happened in Misano, so I'm working hard to overcome these difficult times. For this reason I want to ride my bike again, I don't know the effect this will have yet, but it will be a challenge I have to face with determination and commitment."
