APRILIA IN GRAND FORM: LEADER IN THE TEAMS STANDINGS WITH ALEIX SECONDO SECOND IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP AND MAVERICK IMPROVING CONSISTENTLY
The winding German Sachsenring track will host the tenth round on the 2022 MotoGP calendar. Located just a few kilometres from the city of Chemnitz in Saxony, it is the shortest of all the track in the championship and has a series of features that make it decidedly demanding for riders and vehicles. Beginning with the predominance of left-handers (10 vs. 3), which is not a detail to be overlooked.
Aprilia is headed there in grand form, leading in the teams standings with Aleix second in the rider championship and Maverick improving consistently. This is a situation that the Italian team is keen to maintain, fortified by their consolidated competitiveness and the hard work that the racing department is continuing to bring to the track to improve the RS-GP.
"In the last two races before the summer break, our goal must be to take home important points. This year we have shown that we can be consistently competitive on every track and in any conditions; consistency will be fundamental when the sums are drawn. I am highly motivated and confident that we’ll be able to do well on the Sachsenring."
"We are tackling a track that seems to adapt well to the characteristics of the Aprilia. The Barcelona test was positive and the Sachsenring will be an important test bench for confirming the good sensations of the latest races, where we have consistently improved. We are working hard and we’ll continue to do so this weekend. Step by step, we are reaching the level that we expect to be able to maintain."
