Alvaro Looks Ahead To Italian GP At Mugello
“Arriving at Mugello on the top of the championship gives us a sense of calm because we know we can run up front and we can work without feeling under pressure. We have a good base set-up, this is a fast and fun track – the kind I like – so I’m hopeful of a good result. In 2007 I won my first 250 race here and I started from pole so that is further evidence that we can run at the front this weekend.
The Italians will be trying to win this one at all cost, especially Simoncelli, who is in good form after his win at Le Mans. My plan is the same as any other race – to work as hard as possible during practice to be in the best possible shape for the race. If the bike is 100 per cent for Sunday we’ll be going out to give our best and if possible take the win, and if not we’ll take as many points as we can.”
