Historically always very fast at Mugello, Cerqui achieved two successes in Tuscany in 2020, a premise that suggests how much he can be a protagonist also on this occasion, among other things, very important given the absence of Iaquinta and given that the most immediate pursuer , his fellow citizen Gianmarco Quaresmini, is there 8 points further behind.

I like the track and I have good memories of Mugello, even if on this occasion it will be very hot and the challenge will certainly be tough. I believe that already in free practice we will concentrate the work to refine the setup for the race, because tire and car management, even if the races are sprints, in these summer conditions are a detail that should not be underestimated. “
