German GP MotoGP 2022: Aleix Espargar: “I don’t understand how there isn’t a Ducati leading the World Championship”


Alex Espargar He didn’t have his best qualifying session, but he didn’t have his worst either. She will start fourth in the race and is not ruled out at all. The man from Aprilia praised his bike, but considers that the Ducati is the best and threw a small dart at those from Borgo Panigale, since his best asset, Bagnaia, is 66 points behind Quartararo.

Aggressiveness.

“Tighten more at the beginning and if it degrades more at the end, then tough luck.”

Rivals.

“It doesn’t seem to me that Pecco is a little ahead. It’s true that the Ducati here have worked well and with the soft tire he has been able to be the fastest. In the morning he took 50 thousandths from me; in the afternoon, one tenth. In rhythm we are similar. In positioning he was a little better, but in speed I don’t think he is faster”.

World.

“Fabio has improved a lot today, so it won’t be easy. It would be interesting to cut points from him before the summer break and I’ll try everything tomorrow.”

Expectations.

“Win? I think I had it a little more affordable in Barcelona. Here I’m not far in terms of speed, but I can’t see clearly who has the better pace in the last ten laps. Although the race distance is always the same, 30 The laps here are very long because the rear tire is very hot for a very long time, with a very high skid, so those final laps, which will not be a question of who will be the fastest, make me have some doubts, but the idea is go out and fight for the podium and victory”.

Know how to dose

“I’ve already said it many times: it’s not just speed, but strategy. I think I know my bike very well and that I take good care of the tyres. I have a lot of speed here, in line with that of the best. The Ducati have done very well. good this weekend. We’ll see if Fabio and I can stop them”.

Best motorcycle.

“For me, it’s mine, I’m really sorry. I have doubts that it would be better with another bike, that is, for me, mine is the best, but if you analyze the championship, the Ducati is, for the street, the better. I don’t understand how there isn’t a Ducati leading the World Championship”.
