#SanMarinoGP: Full attack from seventh row on the grid

Dominique Aegerter wants to exploit his full potential in MV Agusta’s home race.

The 28-year-old Swiss Moto2™ rider Dominique Aegerter experienced a mixed second day of practice at the series’ round 13 at the Italian track of Misano. Despite a harmless fall during the third free practice sesssion, Aegerter was able to improve continuously with every outing this weekend. However, he missed again the second phase of qualifying today either.

#77 Dominique AEGERTER (MV Agusta Temporary Forward, MV Agusta F2), Grid position 21st - 1´38.502 (4/9):

"The good thing is that we improved with every outing. The lap times, however, were again very close. We only miss 0.9 seconds on the first row. Nevertheless, tomorrow we’ve to start from 21st spot on the starting grid. I'm disappointed not to have reached my goal again. My feeling was good and so I was sure I'd get further ahead. A small crash when I lost the front wheel this morning had absolutely no effect. Nevertheless, I'm sorry for the team. At tomorrow’s home race of MV Agusta I will do my best to show my full potential. There are many sponsors with their guests visiting us, as well as many Swiss fans who came to Misano. They all deserve to see a great show. My absolute goal is to be in the top-15 and finally collect points again. In any case, I want to fully enjoy the race in these wonderful conditions."
