Aleix Espargaro will once again join forces with Maverick Vinales at Aprilia in 2024 as they aim to challenge the dominant force of Ducati for the championship title.

Aprilia has emerged as one of the strongest manufacturers in the past couple of seasons, with Espargaro playing a pivotal role in their success.

Despite being the oldest rider on the grid, Espargaro shows no signs of slowing down as he enters the final year of his contract with Aprilia.

Aleix Espargaro’s journey to MotoGP is a testament to seizing opportunities. He made his full world championship debut in 2005 riding a 125cc Honda for Seedorf RC3, showing promise with a best finish of ninth and ending the season in 16th place.

Switching to BQR Honda in 2006, Espargaro’s move to the 250cc class mid-season proved beneficial, with consistent points finishes and a best result of ninth at Sepang, finishing 19th overall.

Staying with the Blusens team for 2007 on Aprilia machinery, Espargaro improved marginally to 15th overall, with a solitary top-ten finish.

Joining Lotus Aprilia in 2008, Espargaro showed consistent top-ten pace, culminating in a fifth-place finish at Sepang towards the end of the season.

However, his career took a turn when his team withdrew before the 2009 season, leaving him without a ride. Despite this setback, he impressed as a substitute rider for Pramac Ducati in MotoGP, earning himself a full-time ride for 2010.

His MotoGP debut with Pramac Ducati in 2009 saw Espargaro deliver respectable performances, securing points finishes and earning a full-time ride for 2010.

Moving to Moto2 with Pons Racing in 2012, Espargaro faced challenges but managed podiums and consistent results, leading to a return to MotoGP with Aspar’s CRT project.

With Aspar, Espargaro dominated the CRT class in 2012 and 2013, showcasing his talent despite the machinery’s limitations.

In 2014, he switched to the Forward Racing Yamaha, achieving his first MotoGP pole and podium, consistently outperforming fellow Open class riders.

Joining Suzuki in 2015, Espargaro showcased potential with pole positions and strong performances, but struggled to match teammate Maverick Vinales’ consistency.

Since 2017, Espargaro has been with Aprilia, achieving milestones like their first podium in 2021 and their first victory in 2022, remaining a competitive force in MotoGP.

Despite his accomplishments, Espargaro remains focused on achieving further success with Aprilia in the upcoming season, aiming to challenge for the championship title.
