Aprilia takes constructors title

Arnaud Vincent´s victory in Sepang not only boosted the Frenchman´s hopes of lifting the 125cc crown, it mathematically sealed the constructors title for Aprilia. The Italian factory, who already sealed the 250cc honours, now have 301 points, 52 more than Honda with only 50 more to play for.

Vincent has taken five of their eight victories in 2002, with the other three the work of Lucio Cecchinello. Two victories for Pedrosa and one for Azuma contribute to Honda´s points advantage over Gilera, who have also taken three wins thanks to Manuel Poggiali.

The 2002 125cc Constructors World Championship title is Aprilia´s seventeenth in total and is added to two equivalent honours in trial. It is their eighth title in this particular category, with Vincent now looking to become their sixth individual World Champion.
