MotoGP Red Bull Ring Track

aboutRed Bull Ring

Formerly known as the A1 Ring, this track has already welcomed the Continental Circus back in 1996 and 1997 after taking over from the Salzburgring as the host of the Austrian GP. With the layout left untouched, our riders face a blisteringly fast track with some tight sections that -under normal circumstances- will see the MotoGP race winner bringing it home after no less than 28 laps within 40 minutes.

With the last two races held at the Red Bull Ring won by Ducatis, both Danilo and Álvaro have the right tools for the trade for the upcoming Grand Prix. Last year Danilo qualified in a solid P5, but after a difficult start, his race ended in a DNF due to technical issues. Keep an eye out for the number nine bike as he is out for revenge. Álvaro managed to turn his luck around, transforming P17 on the grid into a strong 8th-place finish. After solid results in Brno for both our MotoGP riders, the Ducati-gentle Red Bull Ring did not come a day too soon, and here’s what they have to say…

#9 Danilo Petrucci
Brno Result: P6

“I’m happy about the race in Brno, but not totally satisfied because it was only a sixth-place finish. But it was very close to the winner, just three seconds. It was a tough one but we are always fighting for the podium and this is a good thing. We have to continue this way in Austria, too. The circuit is good for our Ducati. It’s not one of my favorite tracks but we have to be fast.”

#19 Álvaro Bautista
Brno Result: p9

“In Brno, I had some problems at the beginning of the race. I didn’t have feeling with the front end and it was difficult to stop the bike, enter into the corners and make it turn. I almost crashed a few times. That problem disappeared halfway through the race, then I started to ride faster than everybody. I could reach the group fighting for top ten, but it was 2 laps to go and I only could pass 2 riders. We’ll analyze the problem for the future...

I’m eager for Austria because it’s a track that I like and I think we can be strong there. We’ll work hard from Friday on to try to qualify well for the race. Then try to fight for the top positions!”

Hard work doesn’t always show from the finishing order, but in Brno, the RW squad closed the gap to the front once again; finishing the closest to the winner thus far this year. By now, placing regularly inside the top 20 - the team’s main objective for their first season - both Joe Roberts and Steven Odendaal are set for their next objective; scoring more points and finishing off the second half of the season with zeal.

#4 Steven Odendaal
Brno Result: P19

“Quite a good weekend in general, in terms of time from the start of the race. We were only 19 seconds behind the winner, which is definitely a step forward, especially on such a difficult and demanding circuit. Still, I am not happy with the result because I believe we can be further up. Unfortunately, at the start of the race, I got held up a little bit, but we definitely pulled through and the team finished 18th and 19th. We’re happy with it, but like I said, we can improve. Austria should be a much better track for our bike. It suits our bike a lot so I’m really expecting some good things. Let’s see what we can do, hopefully in the points again!”

#16 Joe Roberts
Brno Result: P18

“Today was not exactly how we were hoping to finish, but we came home inside the top 20, only 18 seconds behind. That’s actually the best I’ve finished all the year. It wasn’t such an easy race as I struggled a lot with the front feeling. I felt really on-edge, just trying to manage it the best I could. Anyway, there are some positives to take away from this weekend. For example, we got into the top 16 in one of our practice sessions. That was really good. So, I’m looking forward to Austria now, which is another track where we can do well. I’m confident.”

Jaume Masiá returns to the track where he made a spectacular debut as a substitute rider last year, not only finishing inside the top 10 on his first appearance, but also taking home the bragging rights for putting in the fastest lap of the race. Our fast-learning youngster is eager to return to the sharp end of the pack at the track he holds great memories of.

#5 Jaume Masiá
Brno Result: P17

“We didn’t get the best result in Brno, which was a shame because I did enjoy the race. I was fighting a lot and it looked good, but in the end, the bike didn’t feel good, so I didn’t finish the race in the position I wanted. Anyway, there is no time to think about it because we go to Austria directly. I want to go out on track again, and last year in Austria, I had a good race. Let’s see if we can improve!”
