But talking about the facts, unfortunately they did not participate to Race 1 because of a handle bar bracket that broke on the grid the moment one of technicians was taking out the front stand of the bike seconds before the warm up lap.
Then in Race 2 Raffaele de Rosa has started well. He overtook some riders and around the middle of the race he has even arrived in the points zone, but it is true that riding in Superbike is not very much simple, it is something that one doesn’t learn in 2 days. The point is that only in the last 5-6 laps that De Rosa had problems riding the bike and unfortunately lost some seconds and he finished the race on the 17th position.
For team this is a victory, to finish the race with both rider and bike that works well and produced many data to study at home to find the best electronics setting for a riding stile of a rider that had never had contact to electronics before.
In Imola the team will come stronger and ready to take the best of CBR 1000 RR.
Raffaele de Rosa, rider:
“During the first part of the race I had fun, also passed some riders. I started behind, but I felt I was strong right in the first laps. Then I overtook some riders and got more motivated with the race and the bike. From the second half of the race on I had some problems in managing the quick shifter, but until that point I was having fun. Being my first race in the Superbikes I can say it was a good one, even if honestly we are missing more track tests. Besides, I didn’t make Race 1 and I couldn’t get any experience for Race 2. So taking these things into account that was the result we were expecting. Let’s see Imola.”
Eng. Marco Nicotari, Team Manager and Technical Director:
“In Race 1 we had a very sui generis problem something that had never happened before: the handle bar bracket broken at the starting grid and we couldn’t start. For Race 2 we prepared the bike with the same setting we had planned for Race 1 and at the end everything was alright. We knew that the consumption of the tires was excessive here, but at the end of the race our tires were in the same conditions of the other bikes, we checked. The lap times were more or less the same of what we have done during the tests and the racing weekend. So now we have a 2 seconds gap and we evaluate that we can decrease this gap at the most to 0.8 seconds, that it is our gap from the first riders. We need to work, in order to help Raffaele to learn all the characteristics of this class that is completely different from Moto2, I mean the characteristic of the Pirelli tires, the characteristic of a bike much powerful and with electronics. And this is a lot to learn in only one race weekend. In my opinion it was a good race. While he was among other riders and overtaking them he was having fun. Now it’s time to work to Imola.”
