Moto2: ‘Wonderful feeling’ - Corsi back after six months

“Being back in the box with my team and riding my bike again was a wonderful feeling”
After a six month injury layoff, Simone Corsi returned to a Forward Moto2 machine during this week's official Valencia test.

The Italian, sidelined due to a badly broken arm after an incident with Jonas Folger at the British Grand Prix, claimed the tenth fastest lap time (+1.1s) during the single day of dry running.

"I'm really happy to be back on track after six months from the accident at Silverstone,” said the Kalex rider. “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."

New team-mate Lorenzo Baldassarri was 17th overall.

"After a long winter finally I am back riding my Kalex,” said the Italian. “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."
