Espargaro: “The main problem now is the power”

Espargaro: “The main problem now is the power”

Aleix Espargaro finished 11th on his Team Suzuki Ecstar GSX-RR in Qatar, as the Japanese manufacturer made its official return to MotoGP™.

It was an important result for Suzuki after a three-year absence from motorcycling’s premier class of racing. Espargaro started from 11th place on the grid, after a weekend that saw him inside the top 5 during practice, finishing the race in 11th.

Aleix Espargaro:
“I can’t say I’m happy with this result as this is probably the worse position I’ve been in since last season and I honestly thought I would be higher-up in the classification. We had a few issues with the machine but we all know that the main problem now is the power. Engineers in Japan are working hard, I know, but unless we get some more horsepower, it will be very hard to get to the front. In any case I’ve also had good feelings from the race; I ended it and I got points, which was our objective. We are all fully focused on our development process and I’m sure we will get even better results soon.”
