“It's a circuit you could call Spanish-style”
Valencia will set this weekend the full stop to a season that will probably be remembered for a long time given the levelness until the last round.
With the 250cc and MotoGP titles yet to be decided, the Ricardo Tormo
circuit announced already weeks ago that it was sold out and that there were no more tickets left.
David De Gea will have this weekend the chance to race in front of the Spanish fans on a bike he already knows much better after his experiences in Japan and Portugal. In a circuit he declares to like very much, the rider born in the city of Murcia hopes to have a good weekend and to be able to make use of his experience to achieve a great result in front of his people.
"Valencia is one of the few circuits, which has a larger amount of left- hand corners, which are circuits I'm quite well at," said David De Gea. "It's a circuit you could call Spanish-style, very technical and with slow corners, which adapts better to my riding style, rather than fast corners. I'm really looking forward to getting there because every time I've been to Valencia, no matter in which class, I've had good results. So I hope to give the team something to be happy about as well as to all the people who have trusted in me, to show them that I can be there."
For team mate Shuhei Aoyama, the round in Valencia will not be his first time at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit, since the Japanese rider was already there during test sessions in the preseason.
Shuhei Aoyama said: "I know the circuit in Valencia because I've already been testing at the beginning of the season and I like it. This is going to be the last race of the season so I hope to be able to close the season with a podium finish. I'm already looking forward to it."
