For Espargaro, it was yet another good performance at MotorLand Aragon. Since his 2014 P2, the Spaniard has finished 6th, 7th, 6th, 6th and 7th, the letter three results all coming on board his RS-GP. It’s been a difficult year for Aprilia, with the elder Espargaro brother picking up just three top 10s. However, the gritty Granollers-born rider’s excellent race in Aragon is a promising sign that the Italian factory can finish the season strong, before a completely new prototype Aprilia appears in 2020. When reflecting on the Aragon GP race, Esparagro was pleased to have mixed it with the leading contenders but experienced some issues with the front tyre that he wasn’t expecting.
