Herve Poncharal told about the priorities of Tech3March 5, 2019
Herve Poncharal is preparing for a serious test for his team Red Bull KTM Tech3. According to the French manager, serious work is needed to reduce the backlog of the KTM factory team and the rest of the championship participants. After many years of working with Yamaha, the Tech3 team is starting from scratch!
Herve Poncharal: “Finally, we are in Qatar, where the MotoGP 2019 season starts soon. The start of the championship is always an exciting moment. It is already clear that this year the KTM Tech3 Red Bull team is waiting for the emotional season, because we are opening a new chapter, starting a new adventure. We have a new manufacturer. We are now working with KTM, the new sponsor of Red Bull and partner Elf. Everything from scratch.
Of course, during the off season, they worked hard in Spain, Malaysia and Qatar. We are also very impatient and really want to see how the first stage ends. Obviously, at this stage we can not challenge the top teams. Our task for the current season is to reduce the gap with the fastest pilots of the championship. “
The team included Miguel Oliveira and Hafiz Sjahrin, while the former Tech3 pilot Joan Zarco joined the factory team.
Herve Poncharal continued: “I believe in Miguel. He has great potential and a great desire to be part of the project in order to develop with him. The status of Hafiz is slightly different. He must forget past successes. I think the guys will succeed in working together. They understand the importance of MotoGP for KTM. ”
