27 May 2021 – Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello – Italy
The appointment with the Grand Prix of Italy represents the sixth leg of the 2021 Championship. The Tuscan hills will be the frame of one of the most beautiful circuit of the world and even without the participation of the crowd, it is a true pleasure to be able to comeback on this track, after a year of absence.
The performances of our pilots from the beginning of the year have step by step gotten better, indeed our captain Romano is in forth position in the world championship ranking, whereas Adriàn collected his first world championship points, ending the race in sixth position.
With an excellent comeback, that allowed our rookie to gain twenty positions and to show off all his talent, indeed even if throughout the weekend he had to deal with several difficulties, caused by the variable weather conditions, he did not lose heart and without making any mistake he managed to reach the better possible result.
Romano throughout the race had some problems with the grip, that prevented him to stay in leading group. However he managed to minimize the problem, since he ended the race in tenth position and he gained important points, that allowed him to confirm his position in the Championship. The Mugello will be for Romano one of the two home races and surely, on such a technical track, he will be able to express his driving talent.
The Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello is 5245 m long, it has 6 left corners, 9 right corners with a straight line of 1141 m.
Here there are the statements of our two pilots and our Team Owner Max Biaggi.
Romano Fenati: “Last year we did not have the chance to compete on the Mugello track, thus I am even happier to compete here. For the Italian pilots this circuit is truly special, so we will do more than our 100%. We hope to do a good race, because it is really important for the Championship.”
Adriàn Fernàndez: “Last weekend in France I had an excellent synergy with the team and with the circuit. Now it the time for the Mugello race! The circuit is new for me, thus it will be difficult at least at the beginning, but overall I am confident with the work that I am doing with my team. We will surely do our best to perform well.”
Max Biaggi – Team Owner: “After a year of break we are back on the Mugello track, which represents one of the most beautiful track in the world. I expect that Romano will confirm the speed showed off until now. It is a track that can emphasize his characteristics. Adriàn, after the first points gained, I am sure that he will be much more confident. We must aim high, thus we got to keep working hard for the race!”
Last year due to the pandemic we did not compete in the Mugello, thus we will refer to the race held in 2019. In that occasion the winner was T. Arbolino, who preceded L. Dalla Porta and J. Masia. T. Arbolino started from the pole, with the time of 1’56.407 and at the average speed of 162.2 km/h.
Romano started from the seventh position on the grid and throughout the race at 5 laps from the end he fell, when he was in thirteenth position.
On the Mugello track, Romano collected a second place in 2012, which represents the year of his debut in Moto3, a victory in 2014 and a third place in 2015.
The pole of T. Arbolino of 2019 represents the All Time Lap Record and obviously the Best Pole. F. Di Giannantonio in 2018, with the time of 1’56.628 and at the average speed of 161.8 Km/h, obtained the Best Race Lap. Lastly in 2019 K. Toba obtained the Top Speed, reaching the velocity of 248.1 Km/h.
