A breath of fresh air in the intact box thanks to the new crew chief

(Motorinformed.com) – With the changeover of Dunlop tires in Moto2, Marcel Schrötter’s form curve went down. Immediately before the tire change, Schrötter was at the forefront and fought for podium places in almost every race. But at Intact no right solutions have yet been found for the new Dunlop tires (which throws Schrötter back when driving). There are again adjustments to the crew for the 2022 season.

Intact pilot Marcel Schrötter is looking forward to fresh input

As of this year, Fausto Bencivenni will take on the role of crew chief in Marcel Schrötter’s box. Bencivenni comes from the Petronas team. Last year, the Spaniard took care of Xavi Vierge’s Kalex. The collaboration between Marcel Schrötter and Michael Thier ended after only one year. Thier came last year and replaced Patrick Mellauner.

In an exclusive interview with ‘Motorinformed.com’ Schrötter looks back on the crew chiefs of the past few years: “I was very happy with Patrick because he’s a very special guy, but not the right one for some. But I was also mega happy with Michel because we get on very well personally and are somewhere on the same wavelength. “

“From the point of view it was a super cool year. But we would all have liked to have been more successful,” remarked Schrötter, who did not achieve a podium and was tenth in the World Championship. Schrötter would have liked to continue with Thier. “Michel decided that it couldn’t go on. So it’s not that we wanted to replace him.”

“Now two or three new people are coming – electronics technicians, data man and chief mechanic are all new. I now see this as an opportunity because someone new comes into the team who does not know all of our data, numbers, figures and chassis values. He comes from one different team, different drivers, “explains Schrötter.

“I’ve already discussed new things with him, so that he doesn’t pick up where we left off, but rather finds new ways from scratch. Nothing has changed in the past two years, so we have to be completely open and new Try things out, “says Schrötter of the strategy for 2022.
