Champion Simoncelli reviews special 2008 season
Thursday, 20 November 2008

An in-depth interview with the 2008 250cc World Champion, Marco Simoncelli, at the end of a sensational year for the happy Italian youngster.


A stunning turn around in form, after never previously winning a 250cc class race, saw Italy´s Marco Simoncelli set the World Championship alight with some daring performances, sensational race victories and a contagious enthusiasm in 2008.

Describing the incredible upturn in results which took him to title glory, the man himself comments, `It was a special season because at the beginning, you would have to admit that I had suffered two difficult years in 250cc. In 2006 I got an official bike, but in 2007 they took it off me and that´s why I had two tough seasons. At the beginning of the 2008 season I started riding with a Gilera LE that was not the official bike, but it was good. I found a good set up during the winter and I was able to go fast from the beginning of the championship and get some podiums.´

`Half way through the season Gilera gave me the official bike and the second part of the season was easier. So it has been wonderful, the year was very good and to do this after two difficult years is even better.´

His championship winning campaign saw the 21 year-old achieve seven pole positions, six race victories and twelve podium finishes in total, having endured two years of 250cc activity without a single rostrum appearance - following his promotion to the quarter litre class at the end of 2005, when he finished fifth in the 125cc class.

Describing the testing 2006 and 2007 seasons, Simoncelli stated, `The motivation is always high but when the results don´t arrive it is more difficult. But it is in these moments when you need to believe in yourself and work even better with your team. In fact in moments like this we joined together and it gave us more strength. After getting through a bad time everything is better now.´

The man from Cattolica near Misano eventually wrapped up the title in Malaysia with a third place finish, but admits that his nerves were on edge ahead of the race at Sepang.

`To be honest I was nervous on the grid,´ he revealed. `During the race I was trying to avoid any mistake and trying to do my best. In the first part of the race I was trying to win, but after a few laps I took some risks, maybe I risked too much and I nearly crashed so I thought, `today the best thing is to finish third´.´

`After crossing the line, I stopped by the pit wall and I wanted to congratulate my team. The tension was just over, but I was very hot and I didn´t feel too good. My head was spinning and I thought I would faint. So I didn´t really know what my feeling was at that moment. It sank in later.´

Simoncelli´s day in the sun brought a typically big smile to the face of another 2008 World Champion, Valentino Rossi, a keen follower of the action in the smaller classes and a close personal acquaintance of the new Metis Gilera 250cc title winner.

`I am friends with Vale (Rossi). Sometimes we train at motocross together and we review the races at home,´ Simoncelli said. `I ask him for some advice and when he gives it to me of course I pay very close attention!´

Although he has ambitions to eventually join Rossi in the premier class, next season Simoncelli will remain in the 250cc category and he is excited about the challenge which lies ahead. He concluded, `This year was so complicated to win. Everybody says it is difficult to win, but it is even more difficult to retain the title, so I know it´s going to be a hard year. But I will do my best to have another season like this and try to win the title again in 2009.´

Simoncelli sticks with 58 for title defence
Tuesday, 16 December 2008

250cc World Champion will not run number 1 plate in 2009



Marco Simoncelli´s similarity to friend and fellow 2008 World Champion Valentino Rossi does not just extend to his recent form and penchant for elaborate coiffeurs, with the Italian further following in his mentor´s footsteps with regards to racing number tradition. Simoncelli has elected against exercising his right as 250cc titlist to running the number 1 plate, choosing instead to stick with number 58.

The Metis Gilera rider had intended to switch to the prestigious number after announcing his stay in the quarter-litre class, stating that it would be a particular honour for the manufacturer of his title-winning bike in their upcoming centenary year. A change of heart sees Simoncelli sticking to his roots, although the number 1 is sure to be present in some form on his RSA.

Simoncelli´s decision means that no rider in either of the three World Championship classes will use number 1 in 2009. Rossi will keep using 46, whilst 125cc World Champion Mike di Meglio moves up to 250cc and is thus ineligible to run the figure.

The only precedent for such a situation in the modern era is the 2004 season, in which Rossi was the reigning MotoGP titlist, Manuel Poggiali had retained number 54 for his defence of the 250cc crown, and Dani Pedrosa had left 125cc behind for a successful year in 250cc.

Marco Simoncelli not rushing MotoGP decision
By Matthew Birt

MotoGP

22 January 2009 11:38


Reigning world 250GP champion Marco Simoncelli will keep Yamaha and Ducati sweating as he could delay a decision on his future until deep into the 2009 campaign.

One key reason for the Italian’s hesitation in agreeing a deal now is that Yamaha and Ducati’s detailed talks so far have only involved him joining their satellite teams.

The Italian’s MotoGP debut may be 18 months away at least, but both want the reigning world 250 champion to sign a pre-contract agreement after he became one of the hottest properties in 2008.

Simoncelli’s manager Carlo Pernat has confirmed to MCN that Tech 3 Yamaha chief Herve Poncharal first made contact back in June, while Ducati also spoke at length with the Gilera star.

“The interest from Yamaha started in June with Herve talking to us and I know he has made many meetings with Yamaha and this is an option that is very interesting for us.

Marco has spoken already with Lin Jarvis (Yamaha Racing boss) but also we are in the same talks with Ducati,", said Pernat.

Pernat has advised Simoncelli to sit tight for now and added: “We don’t know what the bikes are going to be like in 2009, let alone in 2010. Honestly Yamaha, Ducati and Honda could be at the same level, but we don’t know what will happen with Suzuki and Kawasaki but they could improve and also become an option with a factory team.

"For now the offers are for the second teams, but in my opinion that’s why we need to wait because I don’t see why Marco needs to choose a second team right now. If he is strong again next season then maybe some official team might want him.

"I’m not sure it is right that he arrives in MotoGP in a second team, especially if he arrives in 2010 as the double world 250 champion.”
