Espargaro: “I feel that we have a very competitive package”

Espargaro: “I feel that we have a very competitive package”

Aleix Espargaro left the Jerez test pleased with the progress his team have made, especially when it comes to power.

Team Suzuki Ecstar’s Espargaro tested a new swingarm and worked on his electronics package in an effort to improve traction on his GSX-RR.

Aleix Espargaro:
“It’s been a good day of testing. We worked to improve traction and to better understand both the positives and negatives of what we have tested. Today said to me that probably a hard front tyre would have been better in yesterday’s race, but the other thing is that we improved a lot the feeling with the traction of the bike. We tested both a different swingarm and electronics software, finally collecting a lot of information on what works best and what is worse. At this point I feel that we have a very competitive package, it’s not a matter of pure power any more but to exploit better what we have available. With my engineers we worked on some new ideas and finally we found some very interesting paths to follow for the future.”
