“Our team and riders always enjoy the American GP. Not only are the people here very supportive, but COTA is also a great place to show your skills, as it’s one of the more complicated tracks. Whilst traditionally the circuit's lay-out wasn’t quite well-suited for our Yamaha, in recent years our riders have both scored good results. If we start the weekend well and keep working in the right direction, we will be in contention for top finishes, which is our goal here. Maverick is thankfully fine after his crash, so both riders are in great shape, and we're fully motivated to get started!”
