Aleix Espargaro improves pace and lines up 12th on Australian grid
POWER ELECTRONICS Aspar rider Aleix Espargaró, who didn’t make a strong a start to the weekend yesterday has gradually upped his game today and establish himself as a threat to teammate Randy de Puniet’s CRT victory ambitions tomorrow.
12th Aleix Espargaró 1.31.990 (22 laps):
“I am pleased with our performance today because we have improved a lot from yesterday. We were a long way off in the first couple of sessions in terms of lap times and feeling but the situation has been turned around by a lot of hard work. The bike feels how I want it to feel now and that is important, as is the fact that we set a consistent pace riding alone and using my own reference points. We didn’t set a single lap as good as my team-mate but our main weapon tomorrow is our consistency. We have worked with the gearbox, the engine and the chassis here and pretty much everything we tried was positive.”
