Dennis Foggia (Leopard Racing Honda NSF250RW) arrives at MotorLand fully focused on his efforts to take a top-three finish in the 2021 Moto3 World Championship.

Foggia and his NSF250RW Chase A Third 2021 Victory

The 20-year-old Italian is enjoying a superb run of form, with four podiums from the last five races, including a brilliant victory in June’s Dutch TT. Last time out at Silverstone, Foggia fought hard for his sixth podium of the year, finishing the race four tenths of a second behind the runner-up and five hundredths ahead of the fourth-place finisher.

Foggia knows the fast line around the Aragon circuit – he finished third there in 2019, just behind Honda Team Asia rider Ai Ogura. This Sunday he will be out to better that result with a third victory of 2021, following his Assen and Mugello successes.

Darryn Binder (Petronas Sprinta Racing Honda NSF250RW) is Honda’s next-best-placed rider in the Moto3 title chase, the 23-year-old South African currently standing sixth overall, thanks in part to a consistent run of top tens from the last four races. Last year Binder finished second in the Aragon Moto3 round, just nine hundredths of a second behind Honda NSF250RW rider Jaume Masia.

Yuki Kunii (Honda Team Asia Honda NSF250RW) looks to this weekend as a chance to reset after a couple of difficult race days at the Austrian and British GPs. At the previous race – the Styrian GP – the 18-year-old from Setagaya scored his best-ever GP result with an eighth place. Kunii therefore knows he has the speed to run inside the Moto3 top ten, he just needs to keep cool and focus on the race.

Andi Farid Izdihar (Honda Team Asia Honda NSF250RW) returns to action this weekend after missing the British GP due to visa complications. The 23-year-old Indonesian has a straightforward mission: to return to the excellent form he showed at the previous race, August’s Austrian GP, where he achieved his third points score of 2021.

Sunday’s Aragon Moto3 race is followed directly by the San Marino GP at Misano next weekend. After that the paddock heads west for the Grand Prix of the Americas at COTA, outside the city of Austin in Texas, USA.

At the last race at Silverstone I felt a lot of stress during the weekend because it was not easy to understand a new track – so it was so difficult and so tough. I know the Aragon circuit, which gives me confidence in the track, so we will have a much better possibility of a good result. We will focus on practice, try to understand how I can be faster and try and get a good feeling for the race. Of course we want a better result than we had at Silverstone.

Although I missed the last race at Silverstone I kept training hard all the time to be in the best shape for this Aragon weekend. I am ready to start fighting again and I believe that we can have a good weekend there and do my best to fight for a point-scoring position.
