THE SECOND WEEKEND AT ARAGÓN BEGINS WELL FOR APRILIA

The second consecutive weekend at MotorLand de Aragón started off solidly for Aprilia. Two tenths of a second faster than a week ago, Aleix confirmed his top-10 placing in the combined standings, despite a harmless crash during FP2.

Bradley Smith also improved by no less than 4 tenths compared to last week on his flying lap and even more noticeably in terms of pace and feeling.

ALEIX ESPARGARO’
“I found a good feeling straight away today – much better than seven days ago. We tried two different setups on the two bikes and we were able to find the right direction to get the RS-GP working well on this circuit. In the coming days it appear that the temperatures will continue to rise, so that could help us even more. The goal in FP3 tomorrow is to confirm the top 10, whereas in qualifying it would be important to start from the first two rows.”
BRADLEY SMITH
“I’m quite satisfied with our work today. We tried a few new things, including a rear shock, which gave us good feedback. I’m a bit disappointed about not being able to take full advantage of the new tyre. Unfortunately, in the final stages of FP2 I found myself behind some slower riders and that basically ruined my laps. With the medium, on the other hand, I found a good feeling – decidedly better than last week – and that is a good start.”
