ESPARGARÓ: "I LOVE JEREZ, WE ARE READY TO ASTONISH"
REDDING: "THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TRACK WILL HELP US"
After three intercontinental rounds, MotoGP is back in Europe for an 11-round tour on the most exciting tracks of motorcycle racing history. The tour kicks off with Jerez de la Frontera for the GP of Spain, a World Championship GP Motorcycle Racing staple since 1987.
For both of the Aprilia Racing Team Gresini riders, this will be a particularly important event. Aleix Espargaró will be on his home pitch at a circuit that he loves and that seems to be a good fit for the dynamic characteristics of the RS-GP. After earning his first points of the 2018 season in Austin, the Spanish rider has the motivation and the potential to aim for important results.
Scott Redding tackled the opening rounds of the season as an apprentice, focusing on increasing his familiarity with the new bike and the new team. The experience gained in the first three Grand Prix races will help the British rider on friendlier circuits.
