ALEIX ESPARGARÓ RETURNS FROM HIS INJURY WITH A FEW UNEXPECTED DIFFICULTIES
SCOTT REDDING RECKONS WITH A LOSS OF FEELING IN FP2
The scorching asphalt of Brno in the Czech Republic hosts the return of the MotoGP riders. For Aleix Espargaró, these were the first two sessions after the injury he suffered on the Sachsenring, a condition that made itself felt. In fact, the Spanish Aprilia Racing Team Gresini rider suffered from back and rib pain, not enough to keep him from riding, but certainly penalising. From a technical point of view, Aleix complained of difficulties maintaining speed going through turns. This problem was mitigated by the changes made between the two sessions, as demonstrated by the 1.2-second improvement.
Scott Redding did not find the right feeling on the Czech asphalt straight away either, in any case improving between the two sessions, but with more room for growth to explore in the qualifiers and the race.
