Alex Rins is having a phenomenal season and is in great shape. Unlike the previous season, he is much better and shows as much as he can. Motorsport reporters asked Rins if he feels he is showing his true self now after a difficult 2021, he replied "Yeah, for sure.
I think that we are working so good in the box, out of the box also. "This winter time I did a good job working in the gym, mentally also." - Rins said, as quoted by motorsport. "So, thanks to this I think we have the consistency that we are showing.
But OK still many races to the end, this is just the first race. "But I think overall we did a good job, but I think in Argentina and in Texas we did a really good weekend. So, let's try to keep working on the same way."
Rins finished second in COTA "Sincerely, I didn't expect the podium position because usually the first laps I'm able to recover a few positions, but not today," he added. "I tried to push a lot to the front tyre, braking hard trying to overtake some riders.
"Enea was so smart, when I was behind him I tried to overtake him and I think he was trying to save the tyres, the body. Rins was persistent, did not give up and in the end deservedly reached the podium. "Then these laps he started to push really hard and it was so difficult for me to go with him.
"So, I tried to maintain my pace and I arrived to Jack and Jack is not the one who is easy to overtake; his braking is so hard. "But I gave it everything on the last two corners to the end, I was able to finish on the podium.
It's a really good position for us, for Suzuki, 500 podiums." He is having a good season, and wants to continue with that pace.
