Maverick’s debut Viñales riding the Aprilia RS-GP will have the Italian asphalt of Misano Adriatico as a backdrop. The first contact between the Spanish driver and the Italian team is scheduled for two days of testing on 31 August – 1 September. The Maverick insertion path then begins in the new structure that will accompany him throughout the 2022 season, a gradual approach to the best essential harmony in an extraordinary championship like modern MotoGP.
These are the words of Romano Albesiano, Aprilia dt: “From a technical point of view, it is always fascinating to hear the impressions of a rider getting on your bike for the first time. Especially since it is a sample like Maverick, whom we are pleased to welcome to the Aprilia Racing family. After the great work brought to the track by the racing department in the last two years, we add theyet another step in the growth path that we are undertaking with encouraging results. Clearly the first approach involves a very practical adaptation phase, in terms of ergonomics and preferences that we know vary for each rider. But I’m sure Maverick’s talent and speed will emerge right away and I can’t wait to start working together.“.
