MotoGP Silverstone J1, Aleix Espargaró (Aprilia/5) changes tone: “This long lap is a bluff, Quartararo loses only a few tenths”

Now that we’ve gotten to the heart of the matter of this British Grand Prix at Silverstone, Alex Espargaro, who is fighting for the title against Fabio Quartararo, is looking at the facts from the track and hasn’t returned from a press conference. And if his position on the fact that the penalty of the French can be discussed to satiety, then this developed when applying the sentence. The Aprilia official saw it as an opportunity in the race, otherwise he wouldn’t publicly regret that where the Yamaha official would have to do the “long lap” gives him the opportunity to make it so quickly…

Alex Espargaro Reports on his first day in Silverstone From which he derives great satisfaction. Swift since he was in the top five, he has worked with his teammate Vinalesthe third solid, which he considers ” like brother However, he also evaluated the place on the road Fabio Quartaro He will have to do the “long lap” on the fourth lap of Sunday’s race. And there, he closes his face with this comment revealing a certain disappointment…” It’s really a joke. Today, Fabio Quartararo tried this long lap several times and He loses a few tenths It reads on GPOne.

Add : ” It seems to me unprofessional, the long lap is a penalty that I generally appreciate, it creates performances and it’s nice: In theory, you should lose something like three seconds. If you lose a second and a half on a track, that’s fine, but eight tenths like that is a joke. But even if two seconds pass, Miller has already shown this year that you can do it and still fight for the podium. “.

Alex Espargaro: I have nothing against Fabio, it’s nothing against him

“I don’t think it is difficult to create a more efficient penalty area for the long laps” analyzes the driver Aprilia. ” I don’t know how they did it here. It’s a show and this punishment is part of the show. For me it is one of the best inventions of recent years in MotoGP. Before, if you had a false start, you had to go through the pits. Then your race turned into a disaster. Now, with this punishment, the show is different, but you always have to remember what it is and why. It was easy to improve the situation, even if we try with WSBK we can understand that it can’t work like this: In Barcelona you waste about 3 seconds, here and not one “.

Alex Espargaro is over: ” We’ll talk about it on the safety committee. I don’t like to talk about it now. I have nothing against Fabio, it is nothing against him. It’s not up to him, but the riders want everything to be a bit of the same. Long lap penalty and penalties in general. Here there are too many differences with other circuits, it must change .for this weekend or the next?
