Xavier Simeon
endured a disappointing race at Aragon this afternoon but the Belgian left Spain in a positive frame of mind after securing his Moto2 future for next season. Simeon will continue with the Tech 3 Racing team in the intermediate class next year and will be hoping to score points on a more regular basis after a gearbox problem left him down in 18th today.

“I am not too happy with the out coming of this race. I really thought it would work out better for me as the bike felt so much more comfortable than yesterday. But during the whole race I had to deal with gearing problems and I lost a lot of time because of that. I am disappointed as I really had the rhythm and feeling today to finish much higher than 18th, so I hope we can do what I was missing out at in Japan.”

Given the problems he had to overcome, Team Manager Herve Poncharal was pleased with Simeon's performance and expects to see him progress next year.

“I am very happy with Xavier’s race after the disappointing qualifying. I thought the announcement that he will stay with Tech 3 next year did give him a boost and it finally arrived today. He had a very good race with some of the top guys. He is a rider that we have to take into consideration to collect points each race and I am sure that this will be easy next year. He is happy with the Mistral 610 package and it was a good day for the Tech3 B Team.”
