Espargaro: “We have the potential to aim for higher results”

Espargaro: “We have the potential to aim for higher results”

Aleix Espargaro says he has made huge steps forward with the GSX-RR, it’s now about dealing with the electronics.

When the red lights went out, Espargaro made a good start, getting to the first corner in fifth place, battling to keep his GSX-RR as close as possible to the front riders. This would prove to be difficult as his competitors seemed to have a slight performance edge. In the middle of the race he dropped to seventh place and finally took the chequered flag in that position, meaning another race finish in the top-eight with more important points scored in the championship.

Aleix Espargaro:
“I’m not really satisfied with the result of this race, it is positive that I got again in the top eight and I gained important points to get closer to seventh place in the championship, but we all feel we have the potential to aim for higher results. At the moment we have to work more on traction, it is not a matter of pure power anymore; it is more a matter of delivering the power that we already have more effectively. We made huge steps forward with the chattering compared to previous races and now we have to deal with the rear wheel spinning. We have one very important test day tomorrow. We will test some new parts but mainly we have to work on the electronics to find improved traction. The team is doing an amazing job and really supporting me so it would be nice to reward them with better results because I think we deserve them for the potential that we have.”
