Maverick Vinales Sets Sights on Le Mans Triumph: A Special Year in the Making with Aprilia’s RS-GP24

Published

on

Maverick Vinales is optimistic about the season, expressing his belief in its uniqueness: "Heading into Le Mans, I genuinely believe this season holds something extraordinary, given our current performance level and my confidence on the RS-GP24."

Maverick Vinales and his team at Aprilia are determined to show that their recent lackluster performance at the Jerez MotoGP was merely an anomaly. Vinales is optimistic about their prospects at Le Mans, considering it to be “one of the circuits where we will have a strong advantage”.

Following three wins in the previous four races, highlighted by a flawless double at COTA, Vinales and his teammate Aleix Espargaro found themselves starting 11th and 12th respectively due to a rain-affected qualifying session at Jerez.

Vinales momentarily secured a top-three position in the Sprint but fell due to wet spots, joining many others who crashed, and then managed to finish ninth in the Grand Prix.

During Monday's trial, an issue was detected with his Sunday motorcycle, which he had opted for following a crash in the Sprint, leading him to secure the runner-up position.

Track #12 ranks among his top preferences, with the racer having secured his inaugural Grand Prix win at this location in the 125cc category back in 2011.

This was succeeded by a triumph in Moto3 in 2013 and a MotoGP win with Yamaha in 2017.

"Vinales expressed that he has always felt a strong sense of competition at Le Mans, however, his aspirations for the 2023 French GP were dashed following an early incident with Francesco Bagnaia."

"I'm optimistic that this year will stand out due to the advancements we've made and my personal confidence riding the RS-GP24."

"I believe Le Mans is going to be among the circuits where our performance will shine the brightest. I'm coming in with a high level of focus and motivation."

"The ambiance in France is amazing, just like the race track. I'm really looking forward to witnessing the Aprilia supporters in the crowd!"

Vinales has moved up to fifth place in the global rankings, while his teammate, Aleix Espargaro, has fallen to eighth place following his impressive performance in the Qatar Sprint.

Espargaro, mentioning that his decision about continuing in MotoGP will be made in the upcoming races, secured a podium finish at Le Mans for Aprilia in 2022.

"Espargaro expressed excitement about competing at the iconic Le Mans track, emphasizing the critical role of braking. He noted the unpredictable weather conditions, acknowledging the additional challenge they present."

"I'm fond of this circuit; I secured a podium finish there two years back, and last year, I placed 8th and 5th. I'm eager to return and start achieving the outcomes we've earned."

As of now, Aprilia remains the sole MotoGP team that has not formally announced its rider lineup for the 2025
