Aleix: "I dedicate this first day to Gresini and his workers"

Happy Aprilia with his best time: "It is too early, but obviously we have taken a step forward. It is always nice to start like this."


Full satisfaction for Aleix Espargaró for having set the best time on the back of the Aprilia on the first day of testing for MotoGP in Qatar. He is aware that the preseason has just begun, but also that such a result is very good for the troops in his box, very morally touched after the recent loss of Fausto Gresini.

Evaluation of his 1: 54.687: "It is too early, but obviously we have taken a step forward. It is always nice to start the season like this. I think the time set is fast and competitive. Besides serving to lead the table, it has been a Fast time and that makes me happy, but it's just the beginning and we still have to try a lot of things and find the set-up, because this bike is quite different from last year, especially in the aerodynamics section. "

Dedication to Gresini: "It's nice to start like this in the box, especially after suffering the loss of Fausto. At the presentation, nobody was very happy and I want to dedicate this first day to Fausto and all those who have worked alongside him during his career I hope they can be a little happier after this day and he sure is proud of all of us from heaven. "

Race simulation: "The circuit was not in perfect condition because it was very windy, but finishing like this very close to my best time in the tests here and faster than in qualifying two years ago means that we are on the right track I am sure that everyone will improve their times in the remaining four test days, but we can also improve. We are not focusing on a super time but the consistency has also been good and tomorrow I will try to do a race simulation and the entire work program that lies ahead ".
