A. Espargaro explains stunning final corner Assen move

The final chicane at the TT Circuit Assen is where history is made. After the race, Espargaro – now just 21 points down on Quartararo in the Championship – explained how his unbelievable double overtake came to fruition. “The overtaking was in in the last brake, but in reality was in the left corner. All race long, Espargaro was picking off riders at ease into the Geert Timmer chicane. Well, Aprilia’s new fairing – that both Espargaro and third place finisher Maverick Viñales raced with at Assen – certainly helped. Both Espargaro and Viñales didn’t race with it in Germany due to the heat, but they used it to great effect in the Netherlands. I lose in some places but in the fast section my bike was a lot better,” commented Espargaro.
