Prospects of KTM in MotoGP: Pete Bayer and Mike Lyaytner see two keys to success in a new season


The president of KTM Factory Racing Pete Bayer and the vice president and also the technical director of the team Mike Lyaytner are extremely optimistic about the future in MotoGP: Dani Pedrossa and Zhoan Zarko's introduction in the factory project is reaching new level, as in development of KTM RC16, and in general, in races.

MOTORCYCLE RACES .RU, on December 7, 2018 - the Debut season in MotoGP brought to KTM a lot of unexpected joy. Results were achieved much quicker, than expected at the plant. But the first progress was followed also by the first failures which constrained development in <2018.br>
"Considering both facts, we consider that the project was included into the normal working rhythm and now moves, according to the plan, - Bayer explains a situation. - We are still beginners in this class. But the motorcycle is improved so quickly as soon as it is possible. In fact, we put into operation new model each half a year. In Sachsenring, in a garage [Mika Kallio] had a new bike. We completely adjusted it on Friday, unfortunately, Mika and Paul could not complete the begun work because of accidents. Paul was injured repeatedly in Brno, and it slowed down us. But in terms of R&D I am very happy: we managed to make and test the improbable number of the updates and spare parts which became base for RC16! "
Dani Pedrossa's Introduction in team of KTM developers Bayer considers
extraordinary good luck: "We precisely know where we want to appear and by what moment. It seems, we managed to prove gravity of intentions. It is the long-term project and we have an excellent team. From the very beginning we did not wait for "miracles" during the first two seasons. But now there comes the new, important period. Zarko trusted in us - it is achievement! Dani Pedrossa enters our collective, and I have no doubts that investments will soon pay off: Dani is ready to any call, and I cannot even call the second so experienced pilot in Paddock is real good luck for us".

Trust which was put by Zarko and Pedros's KTM - is estimated above, than many other things. First, it is two independent and experienced racers. Secondly, the team could not put pressure upon them in any way is the their personal choice based on long reflections and calculations. Zarko in all scheme holds absolutely specific place - he will be No. 1 in factory team, perhaps, already to the middle of a season-2019. But also from Dani Pete Bayer waits for high return - on the place: "I think, for any pilot important when he finishes sports career, to be necessary and demanded, but not just marketing tool in someone's hands. In it fire still burns, I see it and is sure: I will have to it no questions. The same way and Zarko".

Zhoan already gave a number of important instructions to engineers of KTM on tests in the Sherry. According to him, key change - improvement - RC16 in 2019 has to become a prototype povorachavayemost. Having changed on KTM with Yamaha, Zarko could not apply the style for 100%, problems because not so "obedient" RC16 began. Paul Espargaro in two years learned to move the bike in narrow turns.
