APRILIA RACING TEAM GRESINI – Styria preview

After the summer break, the MotoGP returns to the track with a double round at the Austrian track of Spielberg. A circuit with unique characteristics, with sudden braking and violent acceleration, challenging from a technical point of view especially with regard to the race distance. The mood at Aprilia is undoubtedly positive. Consistent results are rewarding the Italian manufacturer’s work on the new RS-GP, whose potential is being exploited to the full by Aleix Espargarò. Like any innovative project, there is still room to refine and evolve a technical package that has already proven to be competitive: an activity that continues to see the Aprilia Racing department engaged on all fronts.
ALEIX ESPARGARO’
“The summer break was certainly very useful for regaining the physical and mental energy needed in a competitive championship like MotoGP. The second half of the season will be crucial for us, we have to confirm the positive trend shown so far and look for a further step forward. The Austrian track may not be the one that best suits the characteristics of our package, but it must also be said that the RS-GP 2021 is showing good adaptability to different conditions. We’ll wait for the first sessions to analyse our level”.
LORENZO SAVADORI
“This is one of the tracks I know the least, having only raced there in 2019 with MotoE, so an extremely different category. I will have to recalibrate my parameters to make the most of the RS-GP. I really want to get back on the bike, during the break I tried to work on many aspects to be ready for this second part of the season.”
