2019/08/22 - Moto2™ WM 2019: British GP / Preview

#BritishGP: In good mood to Silverstone

Dominique Aegerter is looking forward to an exciting race weekend in Central England.

During the past week, Dominique Aegerter has had many appointments on- and off-track. However, a positive test on Monday after the Spielberg race mainly increases the confidence of the 28-year-old Swiss Moto2™ rider.

The Silverstone Circuit, "Home of British Racing", in the county of Northamptonshire is the longest circuit of the current calendar at 5,900 metres. Due to the time difference with one hour to Central Europe, the Moto2™ race on Sunday will only start at 15:30 CET.

#77 Dominique AEGERTER (MV Agusta Temporary Forward, MV Agusta F2):

"It's actually unusual for Silverstone, but in terms of the weather it should stay stable and nice for the entire weekend. It will always be a little cloudy, but the likelihood of rain is very low. Those are really good prospects. The track has also been re-surfaced so, I'm already curious to test the new tarmac. Firstly, whether it offers good grip level and secondly, whether the annoying bumps are finally a thing of the past. On Monday after the race in Spielberg we found out some little things during the test there. Of course, we'll try them out on Friday during FP1 in order to see if they work at this track and in these conditions as well."

"At the beginning of this week I also had the opportunity to do some practicen with a MV Agusta F3 in Anneau du Rhin. It was a welcome change to ride this Supersport machine, but also a good preparation for this weekend. Therefore, I feel in top shape. We’re going into the weekend with the goal to make the jump into Q2 again. However, we’ve to create the conditions for this during the first and second free practice session already. After FP2 we should already be among the top 14, or at least very close to it."
