Simone Corsi was delighted to resume his Moto2 career once again after making his return from injury at Valencia this week. The Italian hasn’t ridden a motorcycle in anger since suffering a broken left arm at last year’s British Grand Prix and Corsi was straight back on the pace, finishing the week in the top ten.
Only one day of dry running was possible due to heavy rain in Valencia but Corsi was still encouraged with his physical condition after returning to action.
“I’m really happy to be back on track after six months from the accident at Silverstone. Being back in the box with my team and riding my bike again was a wonderful feeling. Unfortunately the weather was not on our side as two of the three days of testing were affected by heavy rain. I have not lapped a lot, I did not want to risk anything, but I am pretty satisfied. My arm has not given me any problem and I cannot wait to get back on track in Jerez.”
Forward Racing teammate Lorenzo Baldassarri also had reason to be optimistic after ending the week in 17th spot, the Italian feeling he has a good base to build from at Jerez next week.
“After a long winter finally I am back riding my Kalex. I could not work as hard as I wanted because of the weather, but I’m happy with the results. The feeling is good both in wet and dry conditions and this is very positive. I was immediately at ease riding the bike and I’m sure we can improve during next test in Jerez.”
