Eugene Laverty – This year Eugene Laverty runs in MotoGP with team Aspar Ducati. Instead, next year he will descend on the track in Superbike with the Aprilia of Milwaukee team. A return. In SBK, the Irishman played 4 world championships, from 2011 to 2014, with 13 victories and 32 podiums going up. In 2013, with the Aprilia, hit a second place in the overall classification of the Championship.
“I’ll be back in SBK because I miss run to win.” said Eugene Laverty to GPone.com. “But there is another reason. My teammate. My first term of comparison. The simplest and the most effective. However, when the bike is not the same, it is hard to understand what your real value.” Laverty considers his positive experience in MotoGP. “We grew up a lot, even beyond the result (fourth) in the Grand Prix of Argentina. And also for another reason. When you have a very competitive bike, I usually concentrate on that. You would like to grow even more. In other situations, you work much more about yourself. You try to find how to do better. In short, while it is true that MotoGP is a hard school, it is also a school that taught me a lot.”
Eugene Laverty has no doubts about who would want to steal to MotoGP. “Valentino Rossi. He would change the MotoGP’s history if he had focused on four wheels some years ago. However, it is difficult to understand exactly what could be used to improve the Superbike. Because next year we’ll have a few interesting news in SBK. Such as Bradl, Melandri…”
Now Eugene Laverty can see the Battle for the MotoGP’s Title
“Valentino Rossi is my most formidable rival. Because he is closer in the standings. But we shouldn’t underestimate Jorge Lorenzo. Is further away, but not far enough to be forgotten.” Marc Márquez will have two opponents in the fight for the title. Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi. But logically it fears most the Doctor, not only as a ranking. “He is the one to keep an eye out for more.” adds the Spanish Honda. “Because he has a lot of experience, older and more experienced situations.”
When there are five races at the end of the world championship, Marquez, who has 43 points ahead of Valentino, considers it necessary to win at least one GP to be sure of the title. “I need another win in this second half of the season.” said the Spaniard. “Now comes the Aragon GP, which is near the my house. It is one of the circuits that I like better. Here, I hope to have a good weekend. In Malaysia, the weather conditions are often extreme. At Phillip Island there is the wind to consider. We’ll see if rain at Motegi, although I’d put the signature to win the title without winning any race.“
