“This is the fourth world out of six that I’ve won in the last I guess I must like a challenge! The 2012 season was to say the least: we started off well at Phillip Island after revamping my team, but we also had difficult moments. We definitely for the title and maybe that’s why an even sweeter victory.

like to thank the Team, and Piaggio Group, from Colaninno to the last worker my success is just the tip of a great company’s work. I would like to thank my family, my Eleonora and my two children, as well as the present Marino Laghi”.

were on pole, took a new record, got a podium and then a win and back 30 points on Max Biaggi. Not against a rider of his level. obviously there is a massive on one hand because we were half a point from the championship!

But on the other hand, being we are very happy and we have by far – overachieved on expectations year. We have been strong and I think this we have been particularly partly because of this Lascorz replica helmet I am I have had massive support from my family, friends and the fans so to sum up my year it has been

I really appreciate that Provec; all the team our sponsors, Leo Vince and all of them have put us in the of fighting for the world championship. next year we can be very from the start.”


“It felt good to a race on the podium again the last two unfortunate race My BMW S 1000 RR was working very In the first couple of laps of one, I was still struggling a bit warming up the tyre, but once the was working, I could go at quite a pace. Anyhow, it was a tough and I did not want to overpace and risk too

Unfortunately the track dried up and more which did not work in my When I finally passed the track was not really wet anymore, and in conditions I had no chance to follow who really showed a strong today. The track conditions very difficult in race

I pushed 100 per cent but I could not direction quickly. When I I must have hit a wet patch, and I the rear of my RR. My back and my leg are very now. Overall, this was a season for us. We can be proud of what we achieved.

When we started the we were quite far from the top We closed the gap quickly and fought them for the rest of the season. We won but we also had some bad luck and I mistakes.

Everything was possible this and we can be happy. I hope to start that point next A big ‘Thank You’ to all the team in and at the track.”
