The Spaniard thinks big
Second in the MotoGP World Championship standings just four points behind the leader Fabio Quartararo, Aleix Espargaró does not want to hide his dreams of glory at all and from the columns of ‘Marca’ relaunches his own ambitions and that of Aprilia.
To do so, he compared his adventure not to other motorcycle feats, but to the rides of Leicester, winner of the Premier League in 2015/16 against all odds, and of the Brawn GP, which in its first (and only) year in Formula 1 , in 2009, he won the drivers and constructors world championships. Hoping, of course, to be able to replicate that kind of success firsthand.
“The example of Leicester is right, but also that of Brawn GP, when they won in Formula 1 in a completely unexpected way with Jenson Button – said Espargaró -. As far as we are concerned, however, we have to finish the job, because those just made, they are two winning comparisons and we haven’t won yet. But they are two companies from which to draw inspiration “.
