M.F: ¿Crees que puede subir al podio est temporada? Ana replied flatly

A.C: Yes

M.F: What can you tell us the Aprilia RSA?

We had the opportunity to talk to the father of Anne

M.F: ¿Qué piensas el día que tu hija le roba la moto a su hermana?

Sr. Carrasco: Pues con tan sólo un año que tenía, you're going to think, because he just wants to play, but as time went, you begin to realize that she did not take it as a game.

M.F: ¿Qué ocurre el día que tu hija te diceDad, I want to be a pilot”?

Sr. Carrasco: En aquel momento estaba a punto de cumplir cuatro años y por supueso que le dijimos que no, but the cries were happening day after day, the situation was unbearable and she was so clear what he wanted had no choice but to give. It's a strange feeling, because they constantly fear for the health of your child, yet satisfy you because you look happy and that is very important to us.

We could not end this interview without talking to Juan Llançà, one of those responsible for Jorge Lorenzo got his world title

M.F: ¿Cómo es eso de trabajar con una chica?

J.LL: It is another driver more, work is exactly the same

M.F: ¿Cuál es el problema por el que a la mujer le cuesta tanto introducirse en este mundo?

J.LL: Basically it is a matter of education, is what we have been taught. Children are often thugs, who throw stones, wounds are made and play cars. Girls are more delicate and play other things. This is a topic that is only in our power, all depends on how we educate our children and thereafter, pilots, parents, sponsor teams and also change their mindset.

Ana is a girl powerfully built, his face conveys sweetness and security has in itself is overwhelming. It has been a pleasure for me to deal with it, I'm already looking forward to see her again at Montmelo.
