"Besides the position, which is my best result with Aprilia, I am especially pleased with the nice pace I maintained throughout the race. With better qualifiers, we would have had a chance for a much better finishing position. This result is the fruit of constant and consistent work, on my part and by the entire [...]


Second Day in Assen

"Yesterday we started from a good base. I am able to push well and straight away, but with the increase in temperatures, things got worse for us. The bike is very twitchy. I struggle in both braking and acceleration. There is a grip problem in general that will be complicated to manage tomorrow over 26 [...]

First Day in Assen

"This was undoubtedly a positive day. I was able to find a good feeling straight away. It is an important result for me, for the team and for Aprilia. We did not change our approach, but we are continuing to work step by step. There is still margin for improvement. I am very fast in [...]

"All told, we took home a good result, considering the fact that we started from the back of the grid because of some complicated qualifiers. Up to the mid-race point, I managed to maintain a good pace and, in fact, I was making up ground on the group in front of me. Then I had [...]


Second Day in Barcelona

I got very close to Aleix, which is a point of reference, given his experience with this bike, especially in FP4 that was done in race configuration. Evaluating my pace, I think that today it would have been more reasonable [...]

First Day in Barcelona

"Oddly enough, today I felt better with the medium tyre than with the soft. Toward the end of FP2, I put on the soft, thinking I would improve, but I ended up doing the same time as the used medium. We need to understand why this happened. In any case, we need to react and [...]

"I am rather satisfied, especially with the pace in the early part of the race. Starting so far behind, I was able to battle and make up a lot of ground, even on Aleix who is certainly my point of reference. Unfortunately, on the final laps with Mir and Zarco, we held one another up, [...]


Second Day in Mugello

"We are continuing to try a lot of different configurations and that does not help when you’re trying to find the best performance, especially in qualifiers that are this close right from the start. Yesterday we thought we were on the right path, but evidently we missed something. Starting so far back does not make [...]
