MotoGP San Marino: Lowes 'in better position' for Misano

'I believe we are in a better position this weekend, as I have raced in Misano in June and the track is still fresh in my memory' - Alex Lowes.
Britain's Alex Lowes is feeling more 'calm and prepared' as he prepares for his second MotoGP race this weekend at Misano in Italy.

Lowes, standing in for the injured Bradley Smith in the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 team, impressed on his race bow at Silverstone, where he finished in 13th place on the YZR-M1 behind Eugene Laverty.

“After getting my first MotoGP race out the way, I feel much calmer and prepared for Misano, as I have a rough idea about what to expect. I really enjoyed the British Grand Prix, and I learnt a huge amount in just a few days, especially during the race on Sunday,” said Lowes.

“Anyway, I believe we are in a better position this weekend, as I have raced in Misano in June and the track is still fresh in my memory, plus I will be able to give the guys some feedback when coming back to the garage, which wasn't really the case at Silverstone.

"Yet, the plan is to get as many laps as possible under my belt on Friday because I still have not completed my first 100 laps on the YZR-M1. I'm looking forward to the event and I will do my best to try to be as close to Pol [Espargaro] as possible.”

Pata Yamaha World Superbike rider Lowes says his only objective for Sunday's race in San Marino is to reduce the deficit to the race winner.

“As for Sunday, I am not aiming for a certain position but my main target is to reduce the gap to the winner. Finally, I have to repeat that I am sorry that Brad can't race here because he had an excellent result last year, where he scored second,” he said.

“Therefore, I hope for a positive performance in order to thank the team and Yamaha for giving me this great opportunity.”

I still feel that most Brits are getting into Moto GP a little bit too late. We need a few 20/21 year old's getting into the class and getting a proper stab at it. That said, I hope the Lowe's twins can really make a mark when their time comes.
