The first day of practice at Jerez de la Frontera marked the European début of the 2016 MotoGP season after the first race in Qatar and the two American rounds in Argentina and Texas. The Aprilia RS-GP made its first ever appearance in those races, proving itself well and demonstrating reliability and a solid technical foundation.

With the arrival of MotoGP in Europe, the technical development programme for the RS-GP begins in search of the best possible performance.

Both of the Aprilia Racing Team Gresini riders improved between the two sessions of the day.

Bautista finished in 18th with a time of 1’41.573 (an improvement over his 1’42.140 of this morning). All of this in extremely compact rankings.

“We found a track with very poor grip. Already this morning we worked hard to solve a spinning issue. We tried various solutions, but we still need to improve grip more at the rear. We can do a lot better, so it means we’ll have to work on the information we gathered in order to improve tomorrow, but especially to be ready for the race on Sunday.”
