Danny Webb is hoping that a set-up change on his Mahindra GP125 machine can help him add to his points haul at Aragon. The Briton feels that the bike has suited the riding style of his teammate Marcel Schrotter and hopes that a few tweaks will allow his aggressive style to prosper.
“I have been working out in the gym and my hand is much, much better now, so I am looking forward to the weekend. It's a nice circuit … it has a lot of different parts. We also have something we need to try … maybe a bit of a set-up change, because I have been having a few issues that Marcel doesn't seem to have. My riding style is quite aggressive, and he is smoother. We'll work with suspension and engine settings some more, and I am confident that we can both have a good weekend and get more points for the team.”
Schrotter scored points for the fifth time this year at Misano and admits he is feeling happier with the GP125 every time he rides it. The German teenager finished 13th here last year and believes he can achieve a similar result this weekend.
“Last year was quite a good result for me, and this year everything seems to be going forward step by step at every race. I am more at home with the bike all the time, and that means I can push harder. So I am looking forward to Aragon. We have the potential to keep on improving.”
The Gran Premio de AragÃ³n weekend gets underway with Free Practice 1 at 8:10am on Friday and The Checkered Flag will have full coverage throughout the weekend.
