Aleix Espargarò is not having anything of it and this time his target is Andrea Iannone, who yesterday, after the presentation of the Aprilia 2020 team, said to Motogp.com: "I am proud because the new bike was designed following my indications".
The Spaniard was not happy with the Italian taking credit for the progress made with the new RS-GP and vented his anger to the cameras of DAZN Spain.
"We all know what Andrea is like, he likes to be the centre of attention - he said – but it was a lack of respect, not only towards me but to the entire team. I have been in Aprilia for four years and I was asking for these changes, what he said is not true".
Right now, the two riders seem to be at loggerheads.
“I have had many teammates in Aprilia, and I have never had any problems with anyone - continued Aleix - It was the same with Andrea, but after what he has said for me it is the end of our good relationship. Last year he raced with my setups and 90% of the time he came behind me."
