Di Meglio: “The objective is to repeat the podium in Austria”
The new electric motorcycles land on Austrian territory for the second MotoE race of the year. Third in a thrilling opening race in Germany, di Meglio and Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS are ready to fight for the race win and the leadership of the World Cup.
- The Red Bull Ring will host the second race in the history of the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup. The format will be slightly revised for Spielberg, with a third 20-minute practice session added to the schedule on Saturday morning. That follows two free practice sessions on Friday and will take place ahead of E-Pole on Saturday and the race on Sunday.
- The modern Austrian track is the circuit located at the highest altitude above sea level on the entire calendar, as well as the one with the fewest corners.
- After completing a magnificent race, which ended prematurely with a red flag, di Meglio finished third in the Sachsenring battle.
- The 16-points put the French rider of Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS in third place in the overall standings.
- Having experienced the first Grand Prix and analysed the data collected in the first race, di Meglio is confident that he will be able to fight for the front positions all weekend.
Mike Di Meglio:
“The goal in Austria is to get my first victory in MotoE”
“I'm feeling very motivated. The first race went well, but there are still things to improve. No doubt the experience gained in the first Grand Prix allows us to polish details and even take some extra risk in practice and E-Pole. In the race, it will be key to be ahead from the beginning. There are only a few laps and in case of a fall with a red flag as in Germany it is vital to be at the front fighting for the win. I can't wait to get back on the bike after almost a month without riding it. The objective in Austria is to get my first victory in MotoE.”
