Si Aleix Espargaró He ended up frustrated in the Barcelona race and it was difficult for him to digest his mistake when counting the laps; his brother Paul he was not far behind. He considered leaving due to a grip problem, but because of “professionalism” he finished. Yes, in the last place. And at home.
‘Polyccio’ has been helpful to the older man, who understands his mistake. “The same thing happened to me in Jerez a few years ago. I was fighting with Lorenzo, he with the Honda and me with the KTM. I was so focused on beating him, I didn’t want to make any mistakes and I looked at the board the wrong way. You can pass. Especially since it says L0 on the tower, it doesn’t make sense, but it’s the procedure at the Circuit. People don’t know how focused you are on your bikehe was super focused at 350 km/h,” he said in Germany.
The ’44’ went further when comparing his test with that of the Aprilia. “I told him that I would have liked to be in his place, in his position: fighting to be second and finishing fifth. Look at the race I had: a technical problem and I finished 43 seconds behind the first and last in the race, making a career of shame. I would rather have been embarrassed in another way, like he was than what we did. It is always from the prism in which you look at it. What happened to him happened to him, but he was second and he is fighting for the World Cup. I would like myself and many who criticize it. When these things happen, there are opportunists who take advantage of the occasion, but all of them would like to be in his position and I include myself“He released MARK.
Aleix: “I don’t see Pol happy”
For his part, Aleix has also had to give encouragement to HRC and reveals interiorities. “Pol’s situation is more difficult. I was very strong all weekend, I had the speed to win. The race was not perfect, but I was second, I had 20 points for home. Then I made a stupid mistake. But his situation is different. He is not having speed. When you are not strong, you do not feel good with the bike, because it is his reality: he does not feel good with the bike. It is more difficult because he knows that the situation will repeat itself this weekend. Pol and I talk very little about motorcycles. We talk about everything except motorcycles. Obviously, I don’t see Pol very happy. The only place I see it as good is when we all go together with the kids. He came last Saturday to my son’s party, who went with friends from school and there I saw him more relaxed, but in the races, he is a bit closed, I don’t see him very happy this year and it’s a problem“, he indicated.
