Rea’s Suter Struggles Continue At Mugello

1 Mins read

Gino Rea failed once again to add to his solitary point in Moto2 this season after coming home nineteenth at Mugello. The Briton had a fall in the Sunday morning warm-up and reverted to his qualifying set-up which didn't pay dividends in the latter stages of the race. With a month until the next round at Indianapolis, the Gresini rider is eager to make progress with the Suter chassis in testing so he can challenge nearer the front.

“It has been a difficult day. After the crash in warm-up we went back to yesterday’s session. At the beginning of the race the bike felt better but from the middle of the race when the fuel load drops and the tyres wear we lose weight on the front and grip on the side, which makes it is so difficult to change direction and exit the corners. We learnt a lot from this race so we will try to take that forward and with some testing over the summer we can really improve this package.”

Team Manager Fausto Gresini is becoming increasingly impatient and agrees that the current situation can't continue.

“There is not much I can say. I am so disappointed and I think some important decisions need to be made because we cannot continue for the rest of the season in this way, without challenging for results.”
