Barcelona: I was hoping to take a step forward…

Final result: DNF. “I had a setup that was different than usual and I was hoping to take a step forward, but unfortunately hard luck reared its ugly head with a problem in the gearbox between third and fourth from the first lap. Anyway, that’s normal considering the fact that this is only the second [...]

Mugello: it wasn’t easy to ride…

Final result: 18th. “It wasn’t easy to ride because I continued to have various setup problems so I had a difficult race. Aprilia made a big effort bringing various technical innovations here, including the seamless gearbox that works well, but now I need some chassis changes that can help me.”

Le Mans: it was a difficult weekend

Final result: 18th “It was a difficult weekend where I never found the right feeling with the bike. Then today in the race the problems with the gearbox made things more complicated and slowed me down, so I wasn’t able to do much better. It’s a shame. After Jerez we could have done better, but [...]

Jerez:… starting from behind doesn’t help.

Final result: 18th “Starting from behind doesn’t help, so I struggled a lot in the early laps and then finally I was able to set my pace. When I caught up Miller I was faster than him but unfortunately we are still struggling with grip on the rear and even though he didn’t brake very [...]

termas de Rio Hondo: it’s a shame…

Final result: 20th “It’s a shame because I got off the line well and I had gotten ahead of several other riders. But from the very start I had problems with the gearbox and by the eleventh lap I had to stop. Fortunately we’ll be racing again in a week, and I hope the weather [...]

Doha: it wasn’t the fastest race of my life…

Final result: 21st “It wasn’t the fastest race of my life, but on a new bike in a new category it’s what we expected. On the other hand, we finished the race, our first true long run, and we gathered a lot of data that will be essential to our development process. We need time. [...]

Test MotoGP Losail Day2

“We improved a bit today but we need to do better, especially on corner entry and getting the bike to close the line on the exit opening up the throttle. Unfortunately I still had a cough when I got to Qatar and I’m having trouble breathing, but today I’m a bit better than yesterday. I’m [...]

MAGNY COURS. Today we did a great job…

Result Race 1: 2nd / Result Race 2: 1st “Today we did a great job. The bike was fantastic and I was able to confirm my performance in Jerez. Sylvain was very fast and in the first laps it was difficult to overtake, but we created a good gap in front of our rivals straightaway. [...]

Jerez. This weekend my team and I started off well

Result Race 1: 1st / Result Race 2: 1st “After the crash in Race 2 at Laguna Seca I was very disappointed because we could have taken a double win there. This weekend my team and I started off well straight away, changing very little on the bike and my RSV4 performed very well today. [...]

Laguna Seca. I’m disappointed because a double win was definitely within reach.

Result Race 1: 1st / Result Race 2: DNF Crash. “My start in Race 1 was great even if I was a bit nervous in the first laps since Tom usually tries to pull the pin straight away. When he made that mistake at the Corkscrew I thought that was the right opportunity to push [...]
