CRT frontrunner Aleix Espargaro has hailed Mugello as 'one of the best circuits you could wish for' as the Power Electronics Aspar rider aims to bolster his series lead.

Espargaro is currently top CRT rider and lies ninth overall in the MotoGP World Championship after a superb start to the season.

He hopes to make amends at the Italian circuit this weekend after running off track in 2012, ruining his chances of challenging the fully-fledged MotoGP machines.

"I am looking forward to racing at Mugello, a circuit I love," said Espargaro.

"It is fast and not too dissimilar to Barcelona, which is my favourite track.

"It is one of the best tracks you can wish for on a MotoGP bike because it is long, wide, with all kinds of corners and a lot of grip.

"Practice went well for us here last year and we were quite close to the factory bikes but I ran off track in the race, lost a lot of time and was unable to catch up with my team-mate," he added.

"I didn't manage to finish as the top CRT at Le Mans last year either but this year we turned it around, so let's see if we can do it again. Hopefully I can continue to dominate in CRT."
