THIS WEEKEND HAS BEEN FANTASTIC FOR OUR RACING WORLD!
Starting with a fantastic weekend for Aprilia Racing Team !
Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Vinales continue to make Aprilia history in MotoGP with the RS-GP machines in Barcelona! After the double podium on Saturday on the Sprint Race, their domination on the Circuit de Catalunya was even clearer yesterday! Aleix finished first and Maverick second, a first in the history of the Italian manufacturer!
ALEIX : “The greatest day of my life, although not at all easy. At the second start, after seeing Bagnaia’s bad crash, I was tense and nervous and I lost ground behind Maverick. Then I decided to push, without thinking too much about tyre wear or the risks, because I really wanted to battle for the win. When I caught up with him, it was rather clear that he was having difficulty with grip and I overtook him. It’s incredible to see two Aprilias ahead of everyone. It means that we are growing, but we mustn’t be fooled into thinking that we’ve already arrived. We still need to work hard together, proud of what we are doing and all united, moving towards the same objective.”
MAVERICK : “I’m extremely happy with what we are doing in Aprilia. Here I have found motivation and an extraordinary team, and it is exciting that now the results of our work are visible to everyone. This scenario was difficult to even imagine. I made a wager with myself, but I was fully convinced. The win will come. The important thing is to be consistent and to have a fast bike on every track. Today I had to slow down at a certain point, especially due to front tyre wear, but I still had good grip at the rear. Maybe Aleix’s riding style works better from this point of view. In any case, two podiums in one weekend are an extremely good personal result, especially because we have done something unique as a team.”
