Hard braking and rapid acceleration for Round Five in France

Team #Suzuki Press Office - May 14. 

Hard braking and strong acceleration will be theme of this week’s GP as Team #Suzuki ECSTAR head to the French circuit of Le Mans, which is a typical ‘stop and go’ layout. The historical track is well known for being technical and demanding, different from anywhere we’ve visited so far this year. 

Alex Rins is approaching the French GP in a very positive mood after the two podiums in a row he achieved in Austin and Jerez. Crucially, he has also been boosted by the solid progress he has made aboard his GSX-RR in general, and the bike’s ever improving performance. 

Joan Mir is in a similarly upbeat mood as he has made respectable progress and has been able to show some impressive pace. He is keen to turn around the recent results which have left him disappointed. 

The Monday test in Jerez last week gave a lot of useful information to the Team in terms of improving the GSX-RR and finding improved set-up. The presence of Sylvain Guintoli and the test team gave further support to the engineers, who have spent the last 10 days reviewing data and finding new solutions. 

Davide Brivio – Team Manager
“We arrive in Le Mans after a few races with strong results, the highlight being two podiums in the last two races, and this is a trend we would like to continue. The test in Jerez allowed us to collect important information, and also to finalise some ideas regarding set-up and electronics that I hope will be useful from France onwards.
