Situated close to the city of Rimini, the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli is renowned for its stop-and-go layout with a series of corner sequences joined together by short straights. In accordance with MotoGP safety regulations, the 4.2km track runs clockwise for the World Championship races and incorporates six left-hand and ten right-hand corners.


“I have a good feeling about Misano. Last year I struggled there a little because it was my first time riding the track; it wasn’t the easiest to learn. Now I know what to expect I’m excited to go back.
With the bike I have now and how much I have learned since last year, I feel confident.
We are coming stronger every race and this really motivates me. My bike set-up from Silverstone was really good, so hopefully we don’t have to change too much for Misano; I think it can work well there.
This weekend I will focus mainly on my own performance; my riding. For sure I want nothing less than to continue scoring points. We have just six races left, so this is very important and we must concentrate to achieve this every time. Top five is the aim; top ten minimum. We are more than capable of this. I am excited to push hard and make a good race again this weekend.”

“I like Misano track a lot because I rode there in the Rookies Cup; I have experience and good memories there; I won there also. Of course being in Moto3 is different and I know it will be harder because everyone will be so close.
We have to really concentrate on Friday to find a good set-up as quickly as possible. We already have a good base setting to work from, so hopefully we only have a few small things to adjust for this track.
On Saturday we have to try so hard in qualifying; this is one of my weakest areas at the moment, so my main focus has to be this. I want to be better! I have to push harder quicker and get a good time to be up the front at this next race and able to battle with the leaders.”
