Julián Simón
“We arrive at Jerez lying second in the championship and really keen to play a lead role. The first two races have been really strange as far as the weather is concerned and the truth is that I’m looking forward to having a race in normal conditions. In Japan things went really well and looking towards Jerez the idea is to improve the set-up as much as possible, as well as improving my riding in order to be as best prepared for the race on Sunday as we can be and see if we can take our first win of the year. The fans are going to get behind the Spanish riders and we have to try and pay them back with a big performance.”

Bradley Smith
“I know the Spanish guys won’t be making it easy for us but Jerez is a circuit where we know we can go fast and we are not going to let the opportunity of a good result slip through our grasp. We have a lot of information from preseason testing that I’m sure will help us to get off to a good start and be on the pace from Friday. We haven’t had much luck with the weather over the opening two rounds so now is the time to follow up all the hard work we’ve been doing with a top result.”

Sergio Gadea
“I’m really looking forward to getting to Jerez because we still haven’t been able to complete a race in normal conditions and it feels a bit strange. We’re working well but haven’t been able to reap the fruit of it yet. In Japan we made the wrong tyre choice and weren’t able to show our true potential. Jerez is not one of my favourite circuits but that’s not a reason for us not to be up there fighting for the win. I’m really happy with the set-up of the bike and engine performance, as well as the way the team is working, so we have to just keep going like this until the results eventually come.”
