Japanese GP – 125cc Previews

 In News

Julián Simón:
“The good form we showed in preseason carried through to Qatar, the whole team continued to work perfectly and everything is in place for us to have a successful year together, so I’m really happy with the job we’re doing at the moment. It’s a bit strange to be going to Japan at this time of the year because it’s usually one of the final races of the season but Motegi is a circuit I really like and I had a good race there last time. The circuit has a lot of hard braking, which suits my style, so I’m going there expecting to get a good result and looking forward to completing full race distance!”

Bradley Smith:
“I really like Motegi and I know I can be fast there. I had the best result of my rookie season there and was the highest-placed Honda. I’ve had a bit of bad luck there over the past couple of seasons but with the way this year is going I’m sure we can do well. My intention is to pick up as many points as possible and make the most of racing at a circuit I love. The first race was far too short so we’re all fired up for this one. I’m sure we’ll be running at the front so let’s see if we can finish on the podium in the second race.”

Sergio Gadea:
“Our expectations are high for the race in Japan. I left Qatar feeling very happy, not so much for the race but for our form in practice. The rain kind of washed away our hopes but it was only the first race of the year and it’s too early to be disheartened. The team is doing a fabulous job and it is thanks to them that the bike is running so well. The main objective for the Grand Prix of Japan is to continue the positive trend we have set since preseason and I’m sure the results will start to come. I like Motegi and if we are lucky enough to avoid any crashes I think we can have a big result.”
