An added value that can be formidable over the entire length of a championship. This one passed the half-time mark with eleven events contested out of the twenty on the calendar. A deadline where Aleix Espargaro notes that he still has every chance of materializing, being the only one to have scored in all the races since his rival Fabio Quartararo went to fault under its wheels in Assen…

But back to Maverick Vinales who did not hide that he will take his responsibilities if he were to play a role in this championship… “ I will help Aleix in the title fight “said the Top Gun who still seems to have resentment towards his former team. Yamaha. Still, his Batavian performance, started from eleventh row, gave him confidence and the heart to work: “ it was a very difficult race, but i really enjoyed it he said. ” We were previously at the Sachsenring, where we already wanted to fight for the podium. We just took the motivation and the moment with us “, said Vinales during the press conference after the 26-lap race on the 4.5 km TT circuit.

After the warm up, I knew I could fight for the top three. But I did not expect to gain so many places from the start “, adds the pilot of 27 year. ” Aprilia believes in me every day, we get our results step by step. The potential is so high. In the races to come, I want to fight for victory. The championship is at a high level, but I will give my all “.
