FIRST DAY OF PRACTICE IN ARGENTINA FOR BRADL AND BAUTISTA'S APRILIA RS-GP MACHINES
A particularly slippery track awaited the MotoGP riders in Argentina, especially in the first practice session held this morning. The situation improved slightly in the afternoon, allowing the teams to begin the planned schedule for the race weekend.
After their début in Qatar, the Aprilia RS-GP machines are obviously making their first appearance on a brand new track, so they don't have any specific points of reference and this is a factor that made the day particularly demanding. The Aprilia Racing Team Gresini riders, Alvaro Bautista and Stefan Bradl, were in any case able to collect fundamental data for the rest of the weekend, beginning to assess the evolutions (especially in terms of the electronics) that Aprilia introduced for this race.
