MotoGP Qatar: ‘We are competitive’ says Moto2 contender Martin

| | MotoGP

Former Moto3 World Champion Jorge Martin believes he will be competitive in his second Moto2 season and with some front-end changes, he can fight for the win at this weekend’s Qatar season opener.

Martin was second only to Jorge Navarro on the Losail test timesheets despite not being 100 per cent fit through the winter.

“I’m really looking forward to start the Qatar Grand Prix. It will be a strange weekend without MotoGP, as that puts the pressure on the Moto2 riders a bit more and even increases our desire to perform well,” said Martin.

“During the tests we demonstrated that we are competitive. We’re ready and it’s good that the sessions are at night, because we were more competitive at that time of the evening. If we can improve our feeling with the front end, we can fight for victory.”
