Honestly it is difficult to say if Brno is a Yamaha circuit, as Honda won here in the last 2 seasons and now three in a row! It is true that Jorge and Vale came here to test before the race, but it was still not enough to beat Marc and Dani on the RC213V! The engineers at home and everybody on track is doing a great job, building an unbelievable season!
Of course he has huge talent, but I think his character is his real secret, because it helps him to manage the pressure. From the beginning of the season he had the right approach and continues to do so. Everything that comes this season is okay, because as a rookie he has nothing to lose.
Dani is still not 100% but he is getting better. At the moment everyone is speaking mainly about Marc of course, but I believe Dani deserves to be “on stage” because he has done a very good job since his injury sustained in Sachsenring. He showed a “never give up” attitude which we are very proud of. Last year he was almost unbeatable in the last part of the season, so…
Last year Dani and Casey finished behind Jorge, who did a great race… Let’s hope the weather stays constant and we can see a nice battle as in Brno!
