Espargaro: “This race was pretty frustrating”

 Espargaro: “This race was pretty frustrating”

Aleix Espargaro leaves the Dutch GP frustrated after starting from the front row and finishing in ninth.

Starting from second on the grid the Spaniard fought hard throughout the race but fell back through the field, eventually crossing the line in ninth ahead of his teammate Maverick Viñales.

Aleix Espargaro: “This race was pretty frustrating, we still suffer in acceleration and this was a problem at such a tight circuit like Assen. At the very beginning I lost many positions and then I had to fight in the middle of the pack to be competitive. Braking and cornering is pretty easy with the good chassis we have, but when it comes to acceleration, everything gets harder and harder. I tried to push from the early laps, but then in the middle of the race I knew it was impossible to fight for the top and I concentrated on earning the points. For sure we can do better but it’s also true that this weekend was hard from the beginning; but we managed to get second place in qualifying and a positive race result so we must be proud of this. I hope in Sachsenring we will be able to show the big potential that we have.”
