GOOD START AT SILVERSTONE FOR THE APRILIA TEAM GRESINI – Gresini Racing
23 August 2019
ALEIX JUST MISSES THE TOP 10, ANDREA WITH GOOD SENSATIONS
The English weekend got off on the right foot for Aprilia. Aleix Espargaró just missed a top-10 spot in the combined standings of today’s two sessions, finishing twelfth at less than 7 hundredths from a virtual spot in Q2 and with good sensations on the new Silverstone asphalt.
Andrea Iannone demonstrated good consistency in race practice with the harder tyre compound. The Italian rider had a bit of difficulty exploiting the soft tyre in his time attack at the end of FP2, but he says he is pleased with the work done today on his RS-GP.
“Today went rather well. I worked with two different bikes in terms of settings, but I was comfortable with both of them. We had a technical problem in FP2, but we were still able to do a good job. Staying in the top 10 here will not be simple. We will have to give it our all. The track has improved greatly compared to last year. There are not many tracks like Silverstone and the new asphalt does it justice.”
“It was a good day overall in terms of feeling, especially in race pace practice with hard tyres. I was unable to fully exploit the soft at the end of FP2 and that’s a shame. We could have had a chance at the top 10 today. In any case, we still have margin to work with to improve for tomorrow. My compliments for the new asphalt. They really did a good job in favour of safety and entertainment.”
