Having achieved the best result of the season in the previous round in Austria, with eighth place, the rider hopes that the progress made with the new bike, now fully factory fitted, will become more consistent.
“After the big weekend we had in Austria I look forward to continuing the good work with the team and being closer to the top 10,” he said.
The British race, Miguel Oliveira says, is always an interesting race, mainly due to the weather, the low temperatures and difficult conditions”.
The 2018 race was cancelled due to the rain that fell on the circuit and the poor drainage capacity of the track, which later received new asphalt.
“We are motivated and in good shape to continue the good work. The track itself is very challenging. It’s long [5.9 kilometres], with many fast turns, but also strong braking points. So, it’s a mixture of everything you can find on a circuit. It will be interesting to ride a MotoGP bike there,” concluded Miguel Oliveira.
The British Grand Prix is the 12th race of the 19-race World Championship, in which Miguel Oliveira is currently 15th, with 26 points.
