Moto2: Simone Corsi – Interview

Eight rounds into the inaugural Moto2 season and Simone Corsi has taken his JiR-run Motobi chassis to two podium finishes and sixth in the world championship.

With the summer break currently underway, the Italian answered questions about the new class and his season so far...

What's your impression of the new Moto2 category so far?

Simone Corsi:
It is very interesting, for a rider, being aware that all competitors have the same engine. In terms of performance all the bikes are level, but the frame and suspension every rider must make his own interpretation of his machine. What is concerning me is that I try to tighten my cornering which is pretty important with how our bike performs.

We have seen several riders that have been competitive at some tracks, and then not so competitive at other tracks, what are your thoughts on this?

Simone Corsi:
The combination of frame and track determines performance. This I believe is the main reason for the 'up and down' results. A good set up and efficient interpretations of the lines around the track can also help you be fast.

Which one of your colleagues has impressed you most?

Simone Corsi:
[Title leader] Toni Elias, for sure, is experienced enough to be competitive every Sunday, he has always been able to be consistent and the actual results so far underlines this advantage he has, even if the Championship has a long way to go yet. Talking about riding style, I haven't seen any rider capable of dominating just yet.

What about your season?

Simone Corsi:
At the first race I saw I could be immediately competitive and step-by-step I managed to move forward until the two podiums in Le Mans and Mugello. Bradl crashed into me in Silverstone and at Assen I had some troubles. During the last race [Sachsenring] I made a mistake losing concentration when I was going for the podium, but this has brought me experience for the second part of the season.

What are you expecting during the second half?

Simone Corsi:
I'm acquiring the consciousness and the skills to be always competitive. Already during practice at the last race at the Sachsenring I showed I can be in the first positions, with the fastest time on Friday and a good performance also on Saturday in the wet. I managed to stay with the best also in the race. I'm leaving towards Brno conscious of my capabilities, as the objective remains the same: to win!
