Blog | Matteo Bertelle tells you to watch Mugello

Hi Everyone,

It's race week and I'm super positive and focused after the last one.

The Jerez adventure with the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup was incredible and the feeling with the bike was very good during all the weekend.

In Race1 I was in a hurry and I made a mistake, but that experience taught me a lot. The race pace wasn't that bad even though the gap with the leading group was important.

Race 2 was something I will never forget, first podium of the season, so many feelings!

I really wanna say thank you to everyone that support me and also to the Red Bull crew, you guys are really amazing!

After Jerez there was Le Mans, third race of the FIM CEV Repsol with my team, the Sic58 Squadra Corse.

My first time on that circuit was a little bit more difficult than I expected especially because of the weather.

The track was indeed wet in some point and dry in other ones, not the best condition to drive at my best.

However there were some positive notes: at the end the lap times were very good, and I had the chance to meet some great champions!

I keep on training very hard, physically and mentally, at the gym, with my bike and with virtual reality.

I know I have to improve my driving especially at the race start, and get more comfortable with the bike.
Finger crossed for Mugello!
