 In MotoGP, News


Only 4 tenths of a second is the gap between Aleix Espargaro and the pole man Jorge Lorenzo. The Spaniard from the NGM Forward Racing Team gave his best during the qualifying session setting a best lap of 1’33.713.

First Open bike, Aleix Espargaro finished in 8th place and tomorrow will take the start of the Marino and the Riviera of Rimini Grand Prix from the third row.

The whole NGM Forward Racing Team is close to Simone Corsi, who is not going to race at Misano following the crash he had in Silverstone during the race. To wish him a good recovery, Aleix dedicated to his moto2 team mate a special helmet bearing the number 3.

Aleix Espargaro
“We are only 4 tenths from the pole and we are all very close so tomorrow it will be a good race. I like Misano a lot and I expected a better result on this track. Yesterday we struggled, crashing twice. Anyway I’m optimist for tomorrow. Regarding the tyre for the race, I think we will go for the hard option”.
