Moto2 PHOTOS: Marc VDS unveil title challenging livery
The Marc VDS Moto2 team have unveiled their new 2021 livery.
The Marc VDS Moto2 team have unveiled their 2021 livery and riders, the team once again aiming to fight for the middleweight title after narrowly missing out on it in 2020 due to Sam Lowes picking up an injury that derailed their title hopes. Of course fighting the race of his life in Portimao in horrific pain to do all he can to win, taking the podium.
2021 they hope for a better year, the team has one of the strongest line ups on the grid with Lowes and Fernandez with the latter hoping to improve on a troublesome 2020 season which didn’t go the way he expected after surprising everyone and launching a title fight in 2019 which was his first full season in the class, racing for the Pons team.
SAM LOWES : “I’m very happy with the pre-season I’ve had. I’ve prepared well and I’m really looking forward to the start of the season. Last year I had a great season. Maybe it was the best of my career and this year I hope to take advantage of everything we learned, fine tune some details and compete again with the fastest riders. Working session by session, keeping calm and not pushing too much when it is not necessary are some of the lessons I learned in 2020. I’m sure that in 2021 they will be of great help to me. The World Championship will be tight because there are many riders who are at a high level, but I’m going to give everything to fight to win the Moto2 World Championship.”
AUGUSTO FERNANDEZ : “My main goal this year is to have fun on the bike again. I’m convinced that this is the best way to get results and to be able to fight again at the front of the race on a regular basis. I have prepared well during the winter and I am very happy with the work we are doing with the team and my new crew chief to achieve this goal. I have a good feeling and even though it was hard, I learned a lot of things last year that I will try and improve in 2021. The first tests have gone well, so I’m really looking forward to Qatar and seeing how it will be when we start racing again. I think it will be a good year and I will really enjoy it.”
