Espargaro: “Unfortunately I’m in 11th place right now”

Espargaro: “Unfortunately I’m in 11th place right now”

One race left for Aleix Espargaro to achieve his goal of a top ten finish in the MotoGP™ World Championship.

At the start of the 2015 season Aleix Espargaro set himself a variety of goals for both himself and Team Suzuki Ecstar, many have been achieved but ending the year inside the top ten has not yet been achieved. The senior Suzuki rider currently sits 11th overall with 97 points, just six shy of brother Pol Espargaro (Monster Yamaha Tech 3). Regardless of blood relations, Espargaro plans on battling hard with his brother to end the year in tenth overall and amass more than 100 points.

Aleix Espargaro: “The last races marked a positive improvement in the finalisation of the set-up of my machine and my feeling has got better and better since the difficulties I had after the mid-part of the season, but the results we had didn’t satisfy me completely. I feel that we are working hard and positively but we still miss something. The Valencia round will be the last one of the season and I definitely want to get a positive result, to pay back the efforts that me and my crew and the Factory put in this project. My expectations were to end the Championship in the top 10, but unfortunately I’m in 11th place right now but we have the 100-points target very close and I’m only six points away from the top 10, therefore there is still room for a positive end of the season. After the race we will start testing for 2016, it will be very interesting to see how we will manage the new tyres and new electronics, even though I want to take it step by step; first the race and then we think about the test.”
