Jonas Folger to fancy a top result in Silverstone

  • 27.08.2015

Jonas Folger arrives with a clearly increasing form curve at the iconic race track in Silverstone for round twelve of the 2015 Moto2™ World Championship.

Apart that fact, the 22 year young rider from Bavaria eyes a top result this weekend after he missed it already one year ago at his visit to the British Grand Prix due to a race crash when he fought within the leading group. In any case Folger looks forward with confidence to his upcoming tasks at the demanding Silverstone Circuit.

#94 Jonas FOLGER (AGR Team, Kalex) – World Championship position 7 (91 points):

“I really look forward to the Silverstone weekend and due to several valid reasons I go there with a good feeling: first, because the start into the second part of the season went quite well and second, as I experienced a strong weekend last year there. Of course, it was a pity that I crashed and I’m still sorry that I took Simone Corsi out of the race in 2014, but during practice sessions and qualifying, as well during the race till that incident I was consistently placed amongst the front runners. Coupled with that fact that I also was very consistent over the course of both of the first race weekends after the summer break, I’m on a high and very motivated for the upcoming tasks. The result last time out in Brno was definitely better than Indianapolis one week before but in general I’m pleased how things went during both weekends. We just need to build on this level now and in doing so I have to settle a score with Silverstone as I missed a top result in 2014. As already said, I look forward to this Grand Prix, as well to ride my Kalex bike at this fast and flowing track.“
