The Aprilia man looked fast and consistent as he prepared for Sunday’s Monster Energy Catalan Grand Prix in perfect fashion
Aprilia Racing’s Aleix Espargaro prepared for his home Grand Prix in the perfect manner by topping Free Practice 4 at the Circuit de Barcelona – Catalunya. The Aprilia man has now ended up fastest in FP2, FP3 and FP4 and rightly holds the favourite tag for Sunday’s Monster Energy Catalan round of the MotoGP™ World Championship.
A full run on medium Michelin tyres front and rear was a strong showing from the Spaniard, as he took top spot ahead of rookie Marco Bezzecchi (Mooney VR46 Racing) and World Champion Fabio Quartararo (Monster Energy Yamaha). Prima Pramac Racing’s Johann Zarco was fourth on the timesheets, ahead of Luca Marini (Mooney VR46 Racing) and Maverick Viñales (Aprilia Racing), who looks set to be the only rider to roll the dice with a soft rear tyre on Sunday.
