You might have seen this iconic photograph across our website, but are you wondering about the story behind it? Freddie was over the moon to gain a very exclusive chance to see the opening laps of testing, directly next to the grid.


Mugello is considered as one of the most scenic circuits in the world and a staple on the MotoGP calendar. With a combination of slow and quick turns, off-camber corners, sweeping curves and the longest straight of 1141 meters, Mugello is a challenging track for riders and engineers.


Freddie had the experience of a lifetime, staying an extra day after the race weekend to see the testing take place and get an insider’s perspective of MotoGP. Freddie watched the teams test new machinery, collect crucial performance data, try out new set-ups and resolve any problems – a critical element of MotoGP preparation.
