Aleix Espargaro: “Not what I hoped, but ok”

Emotional final weekend with Suzuki ends in P8

Aleix Espargaro (Team Suzuki Ecstar) ended his career with Suzuki with a solid eighth place finish, just crossing the line behind brother Pol Espargaro (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) and Ducati Team’s Andrea Dovizioso. Hoping for more on race day but satisfied with his contribution to the project, Espargaro now heads for Aprilia Racing Team Gresini,

Aleix Espargaro (P8): “I had a bad start and then I had to recover some positions, but I struggled in doing it. It was really difficult to overtake, but also I didn’t want to take too many risks at the beginning of the race. Then the pace was good, but couldn’t do better than eighth; it’s not what I hoped but it’s ok. I really enjoyed the race, although my feeling with the front was not perfect. I’m proud of having been a part of the history that we’ve written with this team for Suzuki, the whole team was amazing with me and we really created a family. Also, the bike now is a really good bike, so I’m proud I gave my contribution. I feel I’m not leaving with a complete work, I missed the podium, but all in the team know that I’ve put my 110% every time I wore these blue leathers. This weekend has been a really emotional one for me, I’m leaving some good friends and a project that has grown very positively.”
