Di Meglio Looking Ahead After Difficult Start

1 Mins read

Tech 3 rider Mike Di Meglio is hopeful that he will improve after making a difficult start to the new Moto2 season in Qatar.

The Frenchman started his second season in the middle class with 19th place in the season opener, after holding off former MotoGP rider Mika Kallio. But the former 125cc World Champion believes he will be stronger as the season progresses.

We can’t deny it was a hard weekend, but I think we collected a lot of information that is going to help make us stronger in the next few races and make big improvements with the bike. I gained a lot of experience with the bike and understood more clearly that I can improve with my own riding technique, so I’m looking forward to Jerez and working on improving the set-up I found at the recent test to get closer to the top 15.”

Tech 3 Team Manager Herve Poncharal is confident there is more to come from the Frenchman.

“Mike had a few difficulties this weekend and I think he still lacks a bit of confidence. He was fighting all through the race and never gave up and I’m pleased he was able to hold off Kallio at the end. I am positive Mike is moving in the right direction and we haven’t seen anything like what he is capable of.”

Di Meglio will have his first chance to improve when the MotoGP circus moves to Jerez for the Grand Prix of Spain in two weeks time.
