Pol Espargaro: “14 seconds from the top is amazing”

Pol Espargaro (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) didn’t quite make it through to Q2 at Aragon, but the Spaniard hit back in the race on home turf to cross the line in P10 – only 14 seconds off winner Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) as the gap to the front continues to shorten race-by-race. Impressed by the Austrian factory’s progress once more in one of the most competitive seasons ever, Espargaro also praised the work of test rider Mika Kallio – also a wildcard at Aragon and crossing the line in 11th.
