ALEIX SIXTH ON THE FIRST DAY OF PRACTICE AT ARAGÓN

Despite temperatures that were anything but summery, so much that FP1 was delayed to let the Spanish asphalt warm up a few degrees, Aleix confirmed his feeling and the Aprilia RS-GP’s on the MotorLand de Aragón track.

On the first day of practice, he took sixth in the combined standings, a result clinched by in the second part of the FP2 session. A nice start in view of qualifying.

With a rather solid pace in the various conditions, Bradley Smith seemed less incisive in terms of a flying lap.

ALEIX ESPARGARO’
“This morning was the only time in my MotoGP career I’ve been worried, seeing the asphalt temperature. With this bike and the power we have available, it is really difficult and I thought delaying FP1 was definitely the right thing to do. In the afternoon, things more or less got back to normal and I was able to go fast, but I’m not sure that my time will guarantee pre-qualifying for Q2. Knowing the riders, I’m sure that at the end of FP3 tomorrow, everyone will try a time attack and the standings will change. In any case, I am optimistic. On this track, the Aprilia RS-GP expresses itself extremely well.”
BRADLEY SMITH
“Conditions today, especially in FP1, were rather difficult. With such low temperatures and with the added factor of the wind, nothing seems to work as it should. Things improve in the afternoon, but the difference between the two sessions is enormous. It will be something to discuss, since we’ll most likely find similar conditions for the upcoming races as well.”
