Title: Bulega “Jerez is one of my favourite circuits of all”

Author: Myanna Wedes

Nicolo Bulega has been working around the clock to improve. He wants more from himself and knows that the team behind him is doing everything they can to allow Bulega to excel. Nicolo has the strength to get top results and just needs to focus on becoming more consistent. Bulega does put more stress on his tyres due to his height and weight. It is an area that requires constant work and improvement.

1. What are your thoughts and goals heading in to the first Spanish round at Jerez?

I love the Jerez track. It is one of my favourites of all on the calendar. I have a lot of great memories here and also during the pre season I was really fast. So I am confident. We were able to made a great step forward in Austin and I am looking forward to the race.

2. In terms of the Moto3 Championship, what areas are you aiming to improve on?

KTM is supporting us with a lot of new parts and updates. But on my point of view, I have to be more consistent with my results.

3. What is it like having Valentino Rossi as a boss and also mentor?

Of course it is a great honour and an incredible opportunity and also a big responsibility. He is a leading example as a friend and an idol. Being part of his Team – the Sky Racing Team VR46 – is fantastic! We work alongside a lot of professionals that give us their 100% at all times. It is a great project for helping the Italian talents on two wheels.

4. Can you tell us about how Pablo Nieto helps to improve the team performance?

Pablo is our Team Manager, but also a former rider. He knows exactly all of our feelings during the race weekend, so he can support us in the right way. We are young guys and his experience especially on strategies, is great. On track – as a riding style coach – we have Idalio Gavira who is working with all the guys of the VR46 Riders Academy. He helps us on trajectories, breaking points, riding style, turns and all this kind of stuff.

5. Who do you see as your main competitor and how will you go about beating them?

After three races I have to say that the list is long! Mir, Martin, McPhee, Fenati, Diggia and Migno. We will see what can happen in the next few weeks.
