THE VETERAN On Thursday in Misano Adriatico, where the San Marino and Riviera di Rimini Grand Prix is ​​underway, we interviewed within the hospitality of the MV Agusta Forward Racing team, Simone Corsi, the veteran of the middle class of the MotoGP and the most experienced of all Moto2 riders, with over two hundred races under his belt (204 this weekend, with 93 appearances in 125 and 15 in 250). At the end of a complicated season, the Roman driver will probably say goodbye to the category, with his eyes already turned beyond the paddock, and with the imminent arrival of the second child. In the meantime, however, he was as always kind and helpful, telling us a little about his season, a little about his career and ” revealing ” us, from the top of his experience, who will win the world championships, who the grand prix of this Sunday and who … Serie A!

In 2019, before the pandemic, we had a chat about the introduction of Triumph engines in Moto2 that took place that season: you were thrilled. With three more years of experience, do you confirm what you told us?
Yes, the transition from Honda to Triumph was positive, it’s a more racing engine. This year they changed the gearbox gears a bit in fourth, fifth and sixth and it’s even better. I know the engine horsepower will increase again next year, so I think it was a good thing.

What do you expect from this weekend?
Well, our season has been difficult, we were expecting different results, unfortunately they didn’t come this far. We are struggling enough, the team is trying to work changing some things but it is not easy, so we hope to improve because the season so far has been disappointing, we hope to have a good race.

What hasn’t worked so far?
The level has risen, there are many Kalex on the track this year, as many as 26, as well as two Speed ​​Ups and our two MVs. We have not improved compared to last year, on the contrary we have worsened and we cannot understand why, we will try to do it in the latter part of the season.

We sincerely hope that you will stay in Moto2 next year, is there this possibility?
I don’t know, it’s difficult. I think I will finish the world championship at the end of the season unless I do a good race or a good result, I don’t know, let’s see.

Alternatives? Superbike and Supersport?
There are other leagues, let’s see. Electric is also not bad. Ducati will come in with a new bike, so we’ll see at the end of the season.

You are the veteran of Moto2, you have more experience than anyone else in the world on the subject, so we would like to know from you: who was your strongest rival ever in the category?
Marquez. I remember that as soon as he arrived in Moto2 he immediately went fast, you could see that he was a great talent.

Moto2 2022, Simone Corsi (MV Agusta Forward Racing)

But one who promised a lot and who did not keep his promises?
Well … in the early years, those who were strong in Moto2 immediately arrived in MotoGP. There were Marquez, Iannone, Vinales, Rins … in recent years Fernandez. No, those who went strong have arrived.

20 seasons in MotoGP. What do you miss from the World Championship back then?
Youth no because it seems to me that time has flown by, I still feel young, but the years have passed, because I started at 15, now I am 35. At the time maybe the world was a little different, more relaxed. I must say that the paddock has evolved for the better though. Maybe I miss the years before, those of the Italian championships in which everything was a little more ” easy ”, when I did the wild card in the CIV Superbike here a short time ago I found that atmosphere that I did not mind. I didn’t mind that paddock.

Here is a Brembo technician (Mattia Tombolan, whom we interviewed). You can ask him anything, what do you want for your bike?
But, I can’t complain about the brakes because I think it’s the only thing that works well on my bike. As a product we are at the top, I have never had any problems, I have been running for many years, I have also tried different companies, but when you use Brembo you are sure that you have the best possible material.

Do you like making predictions? Who wins the three world championships?
Moto3 I hope Foggia, even if it’s not that easy. Moto2 I put Augusto Fernandez. MotoGP I put Bagnaia

And who wins this Sunday instead?
Moto3, dry race, Foggia wins. Moto 2 wins Fernandez, MotoGP Bagnaia

What are you doing this weekend?
I hope to score points, that is the goal.

And what will Roma do this year?
Wins the Scudetto!
