MotoGP Czech Republic: Smith has top satellite aim at Brno

'I will give my all to clinch a solid result, which will give me a boost ahead of the following GP which is my home Grand Prix at Silverstone' - Bradley Smith.
Bradley Smith is targeting a strong weekend at Brno in the Czech Republic to give the British rider a boost ahead of his home MotoGP round at Silverstone in early September.

Smith finished seventh in Austria, narrowly missing out on claiming the top satellite honours to fellow Briton Scott Redding, but the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider believes he has another big opportunity in the Czech Republic on Sunday.

“As racing is a huge part of my life, I am pleased that there won't be any waiting around and I'm happy that we are heading straight to the Czech Republic for the Brno GP so that I can get back on my Yamaha and go for a positive finish,” said Smith.

“I was disappointed to just miss out on the top satellite position in Austria but I am convinced that I will have my chance this Sunday. This year will be the 11th time that I've raced in the World Championship at Brno and the circuit will never get boring for me, especially with the first corner which is definitely special to experience.

“Traditionally, the Yamahas have been strong at that track due to its high-speed corners and layout so I am confident that I can use Yamaha's corner speed to my advantage,” he added.

“I will give my all to clinch a solid result, which will give me a boost ahead of the following GP which is my home Grand Prix at Silverstone.”

@madh4tt3r They've confused him with Dani. It's an easy mistake - they both wear leathers. There's a clear cycle with these close-together events. Optimism before the weekend, followed by concern and determination throughout practice and qualifying. Then the all important race. Elation for a good result, or frustration for a bad one. Monday to recover, then back to optimism... A key attribute for high performers is resilience. The satellite guys all need it. It's difficult for Tech 3. These bikes are so dependant on having the electronics setup properly, along with the challenges of new Michelins, it's a big ask when the support is minimal. No wonder they both bailed to KTM. They might well be worse off, but they'll have more support to improve.
