The 117th episode of #atuttogas, online on Moto.it and on the main podcast platforms starting at 9 on Sunday 11 June, is dedicated to Alex Rins, a rider capable of winning with all the bikes he raced with and with two different MotoGP bikes , the Suzuki inline 4 and the Honda V4
June 9, 2023
On the eve of the Italian GP, Alex Rins is rather “stressed” to put it in his own words: “After the French GP I asked if in Italy I would have the chance to test the Kalex frame used at Le Mans by Marc Marquez and Joan Mir, but there is nothing new here” he said in the Thursday press conference rather annoyed and visibly disappointed.
A consideration that Rins also makes in the #atuttogas podcast: it is clear that when he signed for Honda, he expected a different treatment. Alex could choose between Lucio Cecchinello’s team and the Gresini team’s Ducati, but somewhat surprisingly, he opted for the Honda, despite the fact that the Italian bike is decidedly more competitive. “I made this choice because I I wanted to have a direct contract with the official manufacturer” he says in the podcast, where he also explains his relationship with Livio Suppo (“When he arrived at Suzuki I was a bit scared, instead I found an excellent person”).
In the episode, he analyzes the difference in performance between Austin and the other tracks (“I don’t even know why I go so fast there, but looking at the data, beyond the crash at Le Mans, I wasn’t that bad even in the other GPs”) and explains the differences between driving an inline-four or a V4 (“It changes like day and night”). Then we talk about relationship that exists between the pilots, of the possibility of dating off the slopes, but remaining great rivals with helmets on; of how a driver experiences competitiveness in doing anything. And much more.
Let’s get to know Alex Rins better in the 117th episode of #atuttogas, online on Moto.it and on the main podcast platforms starting at 9 on Sunday 11 June.
