Aleix Espargaro's contract with Aprilia expires at the end of the next season. Moto GP fans are wondering if Espargaro will say goodbye at the end of the season and end his career. Judging by the statements of this great Moto GP rider, we will have the opportunity to watch him on the big stage for a long time to come. Espargaro plans to be a part of this motorsport as long as he has the necessary speed and energy. However, there are also things with which he is not satisfied at the moment.
“No, I don’t think that next year is going to be my last one,” Espargaro said, as quoted by crash.net!
“I’m enjoying my life a lot, apart from the episode [with Morbidelli] in Qatar.
So if I’m fast, I think I will race a little bit longer.“But I don’t like the [race weekend] schedule and I don’t like the calendar. This is how I feel. I understand the position of the organisers [and] they can put 45 races if they want… But where is the limit?”
Aleix Espargaro feels sad for Pol Espargaro
The Valencian GP became Pol Espargaro's final full-time MotoGP race, marking his farewell from the sport. Aleix, visibly affected, couldn't conceal his sadness. He highlighted his brother's role as his idol, despite being older than him. Pol has shown many times in his career how great he is.
‘Pol has been always my idol even if I’m older than him. When we arrived at the world championship, he was very fast immediately, winning races and he won the Moto2 title.
I’ve always been by his side so today was very emotional. On the grid, I went to hug him and I couldn’t avoid crying before the race. It was not easy. '
