SEVENTH AND EIGHTH ROW FOR APRILIA AT PHILLIP ISLAND
The cold asphalt at Phillip Island continues to complicate work for teams and riders. Temperatures on the Australian circuit were once again demanding today, combined with a strong wind the contributes to cooling the Michelin tyres.
Both Aleix Espargaró and Scott Redding made steps forward compared to yesterday, working intensely on the setups for their RS-GP machines. The significant changes increased the feeling for the two Aprilia riders, despite the results of the qualifiers where they finished respectively nineteenth (Aleix) and twentieth (Scott).
