Aleix Espargaro Retiring? I Can Not Say Anything!

RiderTua.com – Aleix Espargaro could say goodbye to MotoGP at the end of the 2024 season. The Spanish rider could be a test rider for Aprilia’s new rider. He underwent no major changes during Monday’s MotoGP test at Jerez. This senior Aprilia rider worked a lot on the racing style on the RS-GP bike, also analyzing videos of riders from other brands to optimize body movements as best as possible. It’s not easy to adapt to a different racing style quickly, but the Aprilia ace completed around seventy laps in a new position to improve his own performance.

The Jerez GP was particularly unpleasant for the 34-year-old Aprilia rider, with two zero points in the Sprint and Sunday’s race. There was little desire to talk even after the official test on Monday, but in the end he opened up about the thrill of riding the Aprilia prototype and the future that is still in question. “I can’t say anything… I can say that I slightly adjusted my position on the bike. We analyzed the other riders’ braking positions with video. Then I tried to move my body a little forward. After so long, it’s difficult to change the situation, but it worked,” said Maverick Vinales‘ team mate….

What this does is a minimal change but can affect the lap times significantly. In the MotoGP class, every little detail can make a difference and he is doing everything he can to win again with the RS-GP. “Often we only change a little bit, we go up or down a millimetre. But in the end the body is the biggest part of the package, this also makes a big difference… We tried a new rear tire for the Michelin with a different casing, in case it was very hot. But it wasn’t I was the first to try the tires, we’ll have to wait and see what others say. However, for me it was a big turning point in terms of responsibility.”

The Future in MotoGP…

At this stage of the MotoGP championship, it is too early to talk about his future, which is torn between a contract extension with Aprilia and parting ways with MotoGP and becoming a test rider. “I can’t say anything about that yet. I spoke a lot with Romano Albesiano… about the development of the 2025 bike and the expected improvements. But I remain fully focused on 2024 and helping Aprilia with development. Then we’ll see what happens in next few weeks…” ..
