2019/03/28 - Moto2™ WM 2019: #ArgentinaGP / Preview

Second attempt towards the top 15

Dominique Aegerter looks ahead to this weekend’s second race of the season in South America highly anticipating.

Dominique Aegerter und sein MV Agusta Forward Team arrived well in Argentina for the Rio Hondo race which is actually the longest trip in the calendar. The venue for the South American round in the northwest of Argentina isn’t necessarily the easiest to reach. After the 14-hours long-haul flight from Central Europe, a two-hour domestic flight is still waiting after an airport change. Termas de Rio Hondo is about 1.100 km from Buenos Aires. Despite the arduous journey, Aegerter can take some pleasure from this event in this rural area and well-known spa.

#77 Dominique AEGERTER (MV Agusta Idealavoro Forward, MV Agusta F2):

"In Rio Hondo, you’ll be compensated with a nice race track after that long trip. I really like the fast and flowing layout of the circuit. The weather forecast, however, is not necessarily reassuring for this weekend. Therefore, we’ll try to start well as early as Friday’s FP1 get underway. I know this track very well and I also go into the second race of the season in great shape because during the break since the last race in Qatar I’ve trained well. Beyond that, it’s nice to see that MV Agusta and the team have brought many new parts for this race. This is really motivating, and it also underlines, that MV Agusta is fully behind this project. These new parts, however, will entail additional efforts. But first, it is important to work out a good base setup during the first session before we can start to try and test the new parts during FP2. Hopefully some of those will bring improvements. Our goal is very clear that it has to go towards the top 15. The first points would be very important for us. But I think, that we can start into weekend a little bit better than it was during the first race in Qatar last time out."
