MotoGp, Aleix Espargaró slams Ducati: ‘Ridiculous’
Aprilia rider Aleix Espargaró complains about the superiority of the Borgo Panigale team
Aprilia rider Aleix Espargaró after the Australian Grand Prix confessed his helplessness in battling with the Ducatis on the track, “It’s something frustrating. At the beginning of the season they made a lot of mistakes. But today the result is that Ducati… I don’t want to use the exact word, but they have ridiculous superiority. You can see all their riders, no matter who’s riding it, but they’re all up there, in the top six.”
“I know what bike I am riding, I am aware that it is a good bike and we have managed to improve it a lot, but it is absolutely not at the level of the best bike on the grid,” the Spanish rider concluded his outburst.
After six titles won by Valentino Rossi in eight years it was the Spanish riders who took the lion’s share of the MotoGp world championship. From 2012 to 2020 only they have won, with Jorge Lorenzo a two-time world champion, Marc Marquez (6) and Joan Mir, triumphant in 2020 with his Suzuki.
