MotoGP, Aleix Espargarò: "Iannone has disrespected me and Aprilia"

Andrea had declared that the new RS-GP was designed following his indications. "It is not true, and that’s the end of our relationship. Last year he used my settings and came behind me"


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 "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."
