As round six of the Moto3 World Championship beckons, PETRONAS Sprinta Racing riders Adam Norrodin and Ayumu Sasaki have their sights firmly set on improvement, following a trio of difficult Grand Prix’s.
After qualifying in 25th place and finishing in an impressive 8th position at last year’s Italian Grand Prix, Ayumu Sasaki will be looking to capitalise on his experience gained since his debut year in the Moto3 class.
Feeling determined to make amends for recent results, teammate Adam Norrodin returns to Europe revived and re-energised following a week of training back home in Malaysia.
#7 ADAM NORRODIN
“After Le Mans the team gave me the opportunity to go home to Malaysia and spend some time with my family and to relax myself after struggling three races in a row. I have been riding quite a lot at home and I feel a lot more focussed on my goals now. It’s been really good to come back to Malaysia and reset my head. Mugello is one of the longest circuits on the calendar; it’s a beautiful place and the atmosphere is always amazing, so I’m really looking forward to it. It’s not been my strongest track in the past, but we have good data for it which I know will help us to start in the right way. I will be focussing a lot on myself this weekend; I feel that I am missing some things that I really need to work harder on. I want to come back stronger in Mugello and prove that I can be competitive again.”
#71 AYUMU SASAKI
“I’m very ready for the race at Mugello. I think there will be a lot of riders in the front group because the track is really long and quite difficult to slipstream. Last year I did quite well at Mugello; I love the track, its so fun, so I’ve been waiting for this race since the start of the year. I’m very happy to be going back to Italy. The last three rounds have been very tough for me but I think things will come better now. I think if I can put everything I have learned recently together, we can do very well. The bike is working very well and my mindset has changed quite a bit recently. I’m a lot better after my crash at Le Mans too, so things are looking up. I hope that I can bring it all together and make a big step this weekend. We are capable of so much more than we have shown recently; the team are working so hard to help me, so I just want to repay them with a good result. I will try my best to finish in a good way.”
