The 20-year-old is leading the rainbow standings on equal points with Augusto Fernandez

The British Grand Prix at Silverstone will be a key watershed for Celestino Vietti Ramus and his rainbow ambitions: with 146 points, the 20-year-old is first in the Moto2 World Championship tied with Augusto Fernandez, who, however, is on a roll and is fresh off two consecutive wins.

Vietti Ramus, on the other hand, who is coming off a Sachsenring retirement and a fourth-place finish at Assen, must necessarily pick up the pace. Ninth in Friday’s free practice, the Mooney VR46 Racing Team rider commented, “I feel good: the feeling was not bad in FP1, I found the same good feelings as in Assen and I’m quite happy. Compared to last year here, I’m struggling less and we have to continue in this direction to make a step forward in qualifying and then in the first part of the race.”

Doting on the i’s, Celestino Vietti Ramus also called the weather variable fundamental: “It will be important to understand the weather and temperatures as well,” he explained, “today there was a lot of wind to deal with in FP2.
