 Gran Premio Michelin di Styria

Five weeks without races, the wait has been hard, but tomorrow finally the engines of the MotoGP will be back to roar and make us excited!

For two consecutive weekends we will stop in Austria, in Spielberg where, together with thousands of fans who will fill the stands of the Red Bull Ring, we will also welcome the second half of the 2021 season. 🔥

After a long summer break, our Tony is really looking forward to the second half of the season, which will kick off this weekend with the Michelin Grand Prix of Styria.

During the summer break, the Italian has never lost sight of his goal and concentration. With determination, energy, tenacity, and strength, he spent this month training hard every day, between Italy, Switzerland, and Spain, and now he can't wait to get on track and create all the conditions to express his great potential.

The presence of the public will be an extra motivation for him, as he hasn't raced in front of so many spectators for a long time! Our Shark is therefore loaded and ready to face the 4.3 km track in the middle of the picturesque and green mountain landscape of Austrian Styria, and he will do everything to minimize the points that separate him from the top 10.


Moto2 World Championship 2021 - P14 - 30 points

🎙Tony: "I'm really looking forward to the next two races. We have been training hard over the summer and we just need to keep our focus. We are well prepared for these two Austrian races and I'm looking forward to getting back to work with my great team. Our goals are always the same and so we will do everything we can to achieve them. We want to improve in the second half of the season, score more points and be more competitive within the top group."

 Gran Premio Michelin di Styria

The Red Bull Ring is a circuit characterized by long straights and numerous ups and downs, with some segments that have significant slopes. The curves, unlike other circuits, are relatively few: just 10, 7 of which are on the right. The rest of the 4,318 meters of the track are long straights, designed for entertainment, overtaking and speed.

However, it is the brakes and tires that have to pay the price, especially in the longitudinal direction. The most demanding braking sections are those of turns 1, 3 and 4. Turn 1 is, of the three, the hardest: although uphill, it closes the fastest section of the entire track. Turn 3, on the other hand, is the slowest point.

In particular, in the sections following turns 1 and 3, also classified by Brembo technicians as the most demanding of the championship, the results of the studies show significant thermal increases. At the start of the straight after turn 1, the temperature rises by 60°C in the central area of the tire, which is subject to longitudinal stress during both traction and braking, while at the exit from turn 3 the increase is over 80°C.

The rear tires bear the greatest stress, especially on the straights and during the most critical braking phases. Managing these tyres in the best possible way will make all the difference, regardless of ambient temperatures.
