The Honda rider, currently fourth in the World Championship, is also optimistic over his ever-improving levels of fitness.
“I have very good memories of the Grand Prix of Arag¢n; last year we started well and we had a good race,” says the Sabadell rider. “I'm satisfied with our performance over the past few weeks and I feel better every day. This week I've been able to rest and recover some energy and now I'm really looking forward to this race.
“People from all around Spain attend the Arag¢n GP and the atmosphere there is incredible. The circuit is spectacular and very technical; it combines fast and slow corners, some of them complicated and blind where you need to find points of reference outside the track.
“We need to set up the bike very well for this track and make the most of all the practice sessions. The data we have from last year can help us with that and it will be important to start in a good direction, but we cannot relax.
“I'm excited to see the Spanish fans again, after missing the Catalunya race, and I hope the home support will give me an extra boost so that we can enjoy this race together.”
