“After a long summer break, I can’t wait to get back to work. I’m looking forward to seeing the team again and getting down to work with my people. I want to continue where I left off in Assen.”
The Spaniard continues: “Silverstone is a track I like, so I’m hoping for a good weekend. The goal is to fight for the win and score as many points as possible.”
On the other side of the Red Bull KTM Ajo garage it looks a little different for the British Grand Prix this weekend. Pedro Acosta will make his comeback after braking a leg in the run-up to the Dutch Grand Prix.
Mejorando poco a poco con esfuerzo y constancia. ¡Pronto volvemos a la carga! 💪🏻 Gracias @JuanMendozamu @FixioClinic— Pedro Acosta (@37_pedroacosta) July 8, 2022
Improving little by little with effort and perseverance. I’ll be back soon! 💪🏻 Thanks @JuanMendozamu @FixioClinic pic.twitter.com/pCoJzURHow
The 2021 Moto3 champion faces some question marks for the weekend: “The recovery time was very long, I am working hard to get back to my previous level.”
For the Spaniard scoring a decent result at the British grand Prix is not the main focus: “The most important thing is to find the pace again, bit by bit, to get back to 100%. Physically I feel good, but now I have to find the feeling back to the bike.“
