Miguel Oliveira is hoping to use Aprilia’s strong showing from the 2022 Qatar MotoGP to put himself in contention for a good result this weekend.
Factory Aprilia Racing rider Aleix Espargaro was strong throughout the weekend at the Losail International Circuit last season but just missed out on the podium. His teammate, Miguel Oliveira, wants to change his lack of success at the circuit this season and hopes that the new asphalt will benefit their bike. Raul Fernandez, on the other hand, has been struggling in the second half of the season and has not achieved a top ten result since the race at Motegi. Fernandez stressed the importance of not having any expectations for the race in Qatar and just wants to enjoy riding and gather information. He is looking forward to riding under the floodlights again.
