In-form Biaggi eager to maintain momentum

Max Biaggi sets his sights on Carlos Checa, but is wary of the local threat at Silverstone this weekend.
Having returned to the victory circle at Motorland Aragon and Brno, Max Biaggi travels to Silverstone eager to maintain his winning momentum and continue closing the gap on Carlos Checa.

Though he has won just two races, compared to Checa's eight, this season, Biaggi's consistency of 13 podiums has kept him in the title hunt, with positive results in Spain and the Czech Republic helping him reduce the margin between the two to 30 points.

It's a strong run of form that Biaggi is confident he can replicate at Silverstone, even if he remains fairly wary of the local threat having been denied a podium at the circuit by the British contingent last season.

“Our current situation is certainly positive,” the Aprilia Alitalia rider said. “The last two victories demonstrate that. I am coming to Silverstone properly charged up for good results, but also well aware that I'll have to give 100 per cent.

“We'll have to reckon with highly ranked direct rivals, just like in the last two races, but also with the English riders who are always particularly motivated on their home track. Tyres and weather, as always, will be fundamental elements.”
