This weekend sees MotoGP travel to Silverstone for its annual British Grand Prix. For 2010, the circuit was changed to incorporate the new complex of corners between Abbey and Brooklands, but the reigning Champion admits that he would rather race on the dramatic Bridge section which has now been removed.
“I'm definitely looking forward to going to Silverstone, it's a track that I really do enjoy,” says the Honda rider, who will retire at the end of 2012.
“I wish that we still went through the old part of the track; unfortunately we don't go through there now and the new section is very, very tight. The rest of the track is fantastic, though - it's fast and makes the heart beat very quick!
“The Monday test in Catalunya was a positive step for us, but we're still far from perfect. We definitely made some progress with reducing the chatter but we will have to wait until we get on-track on Friday to see if what we found also works at Silverstone. Again, we'll be hoping for dry weather so we can maximise every minute of track time to prepare for Sunday's race.”
Heading to Northamptonshire, the two-time title winner sits second in the Riders’ Championship and trails leader Jorge Lorenzo by 20 points.
