GOOD COMEBACK BY ALEIX ESPARGARÓ, ELEVENTH ACROSS THE FINISH LINE
In the preparatory session for the race today, Aleix Espargaró proved to be a candidate for a top 10 finish, a result that escaped him by a hair due to a less-than-perfect start. In fact, the Spanish rider had to make up positions after finishing the first lap eighteenth during a physically and mentally demanding race. In fact, the high temperatures and constant threat of rain forced the riders to put forth extra effort in managing the race.
With this eleventh place finish, the Aprilia rider takes home his third good result in the last four races and, along with it, another confidence boost in view of Valencia.
It was a difficult race for Scott Redding, hindered by the same grip problems that compromised his entire Malaysian weekend.
