I can’t hide it but, for me, identity is important. Ours, that of Aprilia, is strong and deeply rooted in tradition. I admit that having the Italian flag on my livery is something strange but beautiful. I own this feeling deeply, feeling part of a country, of a nation, and representing the colours of this country in the world. Racing and competing with the confidence in the work that they do in Italy, in Noale, in the factory, gives me the peace of mind to focus solely on giving it gas. And, thinking about the great Aprilia story, of the victories and the titles of the past, the confidence in what my team does every day, energises me every day.
