Barros is really motivated and can't wait to make the firsts kilometres to get ready for the 2007 season.
Alex Barros: "I can't wait to begin the first test. I already did different technical meetings with the Team, Ducati and Bridgestone. I'm very confident and I have big expectations for the news season. I never rode with Bridgestone tyres but I'm very happy to have the chance to dispose of these great tyres. These two days test will be very important because they will allow us to begin the work program we planned. The atmosphere at the inside of the Team is very good, I already feel at home and it's always great to work in these conditions. I'm very motivated and I think we will be able to compete at a high-level for the whole season."
Luis d'Antin (Team Manager): "These test are really important because Alex Barros will be with us for the first time.
He's a rider that has much experience and we believe a lot in his capacities. It will also be our first time, officially, with the Bridgestone tyres, a big news in our Team. We're very happy about the agreements that have been reached with this big tyres' producer, this is for us a big occasion and we're sure that we will finally be able to aim to great results. As a matter of fact, Bridgestone has demonstrated to have big capacities thanks to the many victories and podiums they conquered in the last years. A great 2007 season for all our Team is to begin."
