Simone Corsi is ninth in the overall standings of the Moto2 World Championship 2017.
Simone Corsi and Augusto Fernandez bring the Speed Up bikes to points in the Valencia Motul Grand Prix, which closed the 2016 World Championship. The challenge in today’s race started off after the difficult qualifying session of yesterday in which Simone Corsi placed nineteenth as he did not solve the chattering problems of the weekend in the warm-up. Teammate Fernandez started twenty-fisrt but with a good feeling. Despite the disadvantaged grid positions, both riders managed to climb up positions lap after lap. Both determined to reach the points zone, continued to climb until the last lap and finished the race respectively in ninth and fourteenth.

“I’m happy with today’s result. This morning I was scared because getting to points seemed was really difficult. The problems with the bike setting were the same as in the weekend, but I tried to push more than I could for the whole race. It was not a year of great satisfactions as we expected, but I really want to thank all the guys in the team and especially Luca Boscoscuro who believed in me in these two seasons!”
