Scott Redding: “I am very curious to race on this circuit. For me it will be the first time in my career so clearly I will have to become familiar with the lay out but racing on new tracks is something I really like. For this reason, I believe that I will have no difficulty in familiarizing myself quickly with the track. I will certainly give everything right from free practice. The world is still mathematically open“.
Michael Rinaldi: “I am very happy to be racing in Argentina. It was a long time since we faced an intercontinental trip and there is great enthusiasm. I have raced on this circuit only once in my career and I must say that I really liked the layout of the track. I can’t wait to get on the bike to give it my all and try to have fun. I’m sure there are conditions for obtaining important results this weekend“.
