Aprilia Flies to Termas De Rio Hondo for the Second Grand Prix of the Season


Although the first answers on the state of the MotoGP grid, coming from Portimao, are still partial and with all due caution, Aprilia can look forward to its 2023 Championship with optimism.

In Maverick’s case, the growing results on Portuguese soil, culminating in a splendid second place in the race, have confirmed his feelings. The new RS-GP is competitive and, after a necessary apprenticeship, also highlighted in the winter tests, the Spanish rider is increasingly in control.

Aleix left Portugal with a more than positive feeling, despite a final score that was not entirely true. He showed speed, he fought, but a less-than-perfect qualifying session precluded better results that were certainly within his reach. The special relationship with the Argentinean circuit, where he took his and Aprilia’s first MotoGP win last year, will certainly provide a confidence boost.

“It’s obvious that going back to Argentina brings back wonderful memories, but this is a new season. Anyway, I am confident because in Portugal we got the answers we were looking for, I am satisfied with our level, we need to improve in qualifying to be able to prove it in the two races. Being caught up 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”.

“It’s only the beginning of the season but I’m feeling good. Aprilia has worked well and I feel more comfortable in the saddle, I can exploit the RS-GP better. Our objective remains to always extract the maximum from our bike, if we do this consistently I am sure the results will come. Argentina and America are two tracks that I like, I arrive there motivated”.
