MotoGP: Vinales:

After the unprofitable trip to Jerez de la Frontera, the Aprilia Racing team will go in search of redemption in the fifth round of the season, which will be held this weekend at the historic Bugatti circuit in Le Mans. One of the favorite tracks of Maverick Vinales, who over the course of his career has won three victories at the French facility, the last of which was in MotoGP itself in 2017.

"Le Mans is a track where I have always felt competitive. I have the feeling that this year will be special because of the level we have reached and how I feel with the RS-GP24," said Vinales. "I think Le Mans will be one of the tracks where we will be strongest. I’m arriving focused and motivated. The atmosphere in France is fantastic and so is the circuit. I can’t wait to see the Aprilia fans in the stands!"

Leaving Andalusia without having brought home a single point, Aleix Espargaró is ready to turn over a new leaf and go in the hunt for a top result on a track where he has already taken Aprilia to the podium in 2022.

"I’m happy to be going to Le Mans, a legendary circuit where braking is fundamental. The weather is always complicated, so it will be a challenge from that perspective," he noted. "It’s a track that I like, where I finished on the podium two years ago and in P8 and P5 last year. I can’t wait to get there and to begin reaping the results we deserve."
