Webb Expecting Mahindra to Go Well at Mugello

1 Mins read

Danny Webb expects the top-end speed of the Mahindra GP125 to prove very useful this weekend as the 125cc World Championship heads to Mugello in Italy.

The Italian Grand Prix, as ever, is sure to provide some thrilling action as the riders try to slipstream past each other on the 1.141km start/finish straight. This is an area Webb feels the Mahindra machine will be potent and is hoping to score points for the third race in a row.

“Another race where I like the track and I like the place. Our engine goes well at the top end, and there are those fast ess-bends where you can really keep the speed up. It should be another good race.”

The Indian outfit secured their first ever double-points finish last weekend at Assen, with Webb 13th and teammate Marcel Schrotter up in ninth. The German still feels there are areas where he can improve but feels another strong result is on the cards this weekend.

“My feeling with the bike has really come better over the last two races, and my pace is good enough for more top-ten finishes. I want to keep going the same way in Italy, and be stronger in the early laps.”

Team manager Nicola Casadei is delighted to see the continuing progress being made by the team in its debut Grand Prix season, but is remaining cautious ahead of this weekend's event.

“Last weekend, the Mahindra bikes ran perfectly, the riders also. Mugello is a challenging track, but we are getting stronger all the time.”

The Gran Premio d'Italia TIM is round eight of the 125cc World Championship, and The Checkered Flag will have full coverage throughout the weekend.
