‘Honda is new and still needs development’ - Giugliano

Red Bull Honda new boy Davide Giugliano has no expectations going into this weekend’s Lausitzring WorldSBK round as he says that although he has a good feeling with the Fireblade, it’s still new and needs development.

The Italian had his first taste during a test at the German track but rain got in the way and the programme was disrupted but Giugliano believes the team have already found new places in which to improve.

“We had the opportunity to do two days of testing on the Lausitzring track, unfortunately the weather made us lose some time, but I was able to get to understand the bike, which is the most important thing. I got an idea of ​​what the job will be and I will take on the German Round with composure,” said Giugliano.


"Following my first ride on the Honda, the feeling I got was really great. There are a few points to work on, but of course it is a new bike that still needs development. The project has had some setbacks; including unfortunately the severe loss of Nicky Hayden. The technicians continued to work and even at Lausitzring, during the tests, they introduced some changes which could be good.

"Truthfully I don’t know where I realistically finish in the Lausitzring round. The track has a nice layout but the asphalt isn’t in a great condition, it has so many holes which is not the best. Honda have given me this great opportunity thanks to my experience, considering that I have raced different bikes in World Superbike in the past.”
