Melandri: “ I had hoped to keep up with the group of riders

Aprilia Racing Team Gresini’s Marco Melandri had a much better weekend in Argentina as he made positive steps forward with the RS-GP bike.

Melandri finished the race in 20th, but has managed to reduce the gap to the riders in front, thanks to the hard work put in by the team over the weekend.

Marco Melandri:
"To be honest today I had hoped to keep up with the group of riders ahead of me, but at the beginning of the race I lost a lot of time, struggling with the lack of stability at the front and poor grip at the rear. It's a shame because I had even gotten off the line well and from the mid-race point on the bike felt like it had been feeling these last few days, letting me lap at a good pace, staying around 1'41.5."
