The revalidation of Aprilia, Aleix and Maverick

Aprilia has presented its official team from the asphalt of Portimao, where a momentous two-day test for MotoGP will take place this weekend. The house of Noale has done it with the intention of going for notes, because they are no longer satisfied with podiums and the occasional victory, something he achieved last year, but he dreams of fighting for the premier class title until the last race. The challenge is enormous, as it will also be for the Italian brand to have a satellite team on the grid for the first time, the RNF in which Miguel Oliveira and Raúl Fernández are active. The effort will be worth it if they manage to take advantage of this circumstance of having a satellite team, a privilege that Yamaha has lost this season.

Before the protagonists took the floor, accompanied by the family photo of the mechanics and engineers from the house of Noale, have released a presentation video inspired by the famous eighties series called The A Team, in which Massimo Rivola is The boss, Roman Albesian (technical manager) is The teacher, Aleix Espargaro is Captain, Maverick Vinales is top gun and Lorenzo Savadori (the test pilot) is The Smile. The five of them took the floor and made clear the double challenge that the 2023 season represents, which will start on March 26, in Portimao, due to the incorporation of the races into the Saturday sprint. The new RS-GP23 should be enough of a weapon for them to successfully face this revalidation that the 2023 season means to all of them.

Rivola: “A great job has been done in Noale, because the effort is double by now having four bikes on the grid. We are very motivated and we know that it will also be a double job for the drivers, with the sprint races. It will be a crazy season that we are facing with great expectation, but before that we are eager to confirm in this test the work that has been done”.

Albesiano: “We have had a lot of work this winter and we already saw in Sepang that it was good. Now we hope that the weather will be good in this test in Portimao to continue developing the bike. It has been a busy winter, because we will also have to give the best possible support to the satellite team”.

Aleix: “I train hard every winter for the start of the new season. No.It won’t be an easy 2023 by having double the number of races, but I’m looking forward to it. We did well in the previous test and we want to continue improving in the current one”.

Maverick: “The team has worked in an incredible way, something that was already seen in the test in Malaysia. I had time to stop by the factory this winter, to work with the people of Noale, and I think This year it will be easier for me to ride the bike, because I have more experience with it. Also, I have a new chief mechanic (Manu Cazeaux, with whom he already shone in his time with Suzuki). We want to improve in this two-day test and I feel ready, fit and faster than last year”.

Savadori: “Aleix and Maverick are two very strong drivers and for our part we have worked hard to try to improve the bike”.
