(cafetheology.org) – For Hector Barbera the MotoGP season 2017 was a disappointment. After twelve races, the Spaniard has only 23 points in the world championship and is ranked 20 – 6 behind Loris Baz, although he is on a Ducati GP16 and Baz on the older GP15. After Avintia the Marc- VDS Honda driver Tito Rabat has already confirmed for 2018 and Moto2 driver Xavier Simeon is about to sign the contract, it will be tight for the 30-year-old Barbera, already from 2005 to 2009 with Honda and Aprilia in the 250- Class drove. "I'm going back to Moto2 next year," Barbera said, 'cafetheology.org'. "In seven years in the MotoGP it is very difficult to stay at the top and the Ducati is a very complicated bike." Barbera could go to Pons Racing and replace the 18-year-old Frenchman Fabio Quartararo in his rookie year with 32 points currently only on position 17 of the driver's rating. "Now I want to win," Barbera continued, "and Moto2 is easier because all bikes are similar and the riders can make the difference." I have good chances [zu Pons zu gehen]. "Barbera's difficulties were not surprising in 2017. After replacing Andrea Iannone in Motegi and Phillip Island last year, he had already made it clear that 2017 would not be an easy season. "I've had a lot of problems with the bike this year, and when I brake hard, I have a lot of vibration, it's impossible to attack," he said. "When I tried the bike last year in Motegi and also in Australia, I fell in both races, I did not feel good." "When I tested it again after the Grand Prix in Valencia [2016]it was the same problem, I have the same problem after ten or twelve races, I just can not attack, it was the whole year. " Team Bolle, meanwhile, is thinking about a return to the Superbike World Cup if he loses his place at Avintia, "Of course, I'd try to do that, but the first option would be to stay here," Baz said -Total.com '. "I've always felt very comfortable in the Superbike championship, and I've had some great results, a few years ago I've left to come here, it's the second World Cup, so it would be best if I could not stay here.
