The Misano / San Marino MotoGP is almost upon us, and Loris Capirossi is straining at the leash to put on a good show for the fans this weekend.
This could also be the last time that Loris Capirossi appears on a Suzuki in Italy (a fact that will probably please the Italian fans), as rumours are getting stronger that Capirossi is close to agreeing a switch to the Pramac Ducati team for 2011. Capirossi has stated his intentions to try and remain in MotoGP for at least a couple more years, so he gets the chance to experience the series change to 1000cc.
“It is always good to race at home and Misano is the closest track to where I am from. I am determined to put on a good performance there, because we have been working very hard all season and not getting the rewards that I think we deserve – so Misano will be the ideal place to start that happening and turn our season around. We still need to find the right solution to give us the best feeling from the GSV-R so will be trying to be as competitive as possible from the first day. We have to keep a strong mentality, we have seven more races to go this year and we have to keep fighting to get to the top.”
“I have more confidence in myself and the bike after last weekend, so I will be trying as hard as I can right from the beginning at Misano to improve my performance on the bike. It was really important for me to finish the race at Indianapolis – as it seemed like a long time since that had happened. I still believe that we can fight with the top guys, so we need to make that the next target and keep improving for the rest of the season.”
