Aleix Espargaró ready to impress

Aleix Espargaró left Portugal with a more than positive feeling, despite a final haul that was not fully truthful. He showed speed, he struggled, but a less-than-perfect qualifying precluded better results certainly within his reach. The special relationship with the Argentine circuit, where last year he captured his and Aprilia’s first MotoGP victory, will surely provide a confidence boost.

“It’s obvious that going back to Argentina brings back great memories, but this is a new season,” said the Catalan. “However, I’m confident because in Portugal we got the answers we were looking for, I’m satisfied with our level, we have to improve in qualifying to be able to prove it in the two races. Being involved in the battles in the middle of the group inevitably makes you lose time, so we will have to start further ahead to be able to put our pace to good use.”
