MotoGP Mugello: ‘Hard tyre understanding’ crucial for Lowes

Britain’s Sam Lowes hasn’t had the best of starts to this Moto2 season but goes into this weekend’s Mugello MotoGP round with a better understanding of the hard Dunlop rear tyre.

Lowes tested well over two days at Barcelona and says he took some steps forward in many areas and also evaluated some new parts.

“The two days of testing where really important and we managed to make many steps forward. We got a better understanding of the hard-compound tyres, which will surely be the go-to choice at Montmeló,” said Lowes.

“We also tried some new interesting parts chassis-wise. Thank you to Kalex and obviously the team for the work done. We put in 190 laps in two days and now it’s time to focus on Mugello, a circuit a really like.

“I still hold the Moto2 lap record there and this test allowed us to forget the nightmare weekend at Le Mans and to find a little bit of serenity ahead of the team’s home GP.”
