I would love to see this guy drop kick Repsol to the curve, probably the only hope I see in MotoGP right now.

Cmon Dani, join up with Aprilia, fk Repsol Honda.

*Just remember Dani, "T"

This kid is really good and I feel he'd be better on a Yamaha. I feel the Yam would be more to his riding style.

But he's signed to Aspar for another year...and we don't really know what sort of a package Aprilia will be bringing next year.

Go Aleix!

@ michael wall

Is it because you have such a deep love-hate relationship with Valentino that you have to come and belittle him here?

I say, remove your blinders of hatred and experience the true reality. Valentino Rossi is the greatest GP rider that ever walked the planet. Colin Edwards said so in 2009, and Jorge Lorenzo said so just yesterday in the press conference...and I say so too!

Do you think you know better? That's called 'living in denial, dude. Grow up!

This is absolutely awesome! It's time to shine again after couple of challenging races. Hopefully he can maintains it this way until Sunday! This certainly commands respect from all. Go, go, go Aleix!

How often do we see a CRT rider managed a 5th in FP2?? If this is measured scientifically in terms of ratio/percentage (comparing the machine specs & all other related factors), I think the figure could be shocking!! How about having all riders flat out, riding a similar spec machine? I strongly believe Aleix is not anywhere far from the top guys. Who knows if he's within the top 5 guys. Yes, this is still a practice but I believe everyone else is pushing as hard as they could too as practice sessions do reveal the level they are at & any urgent & critical improvement needed.

A pat to your shoulder, Aleix! Well done! Yes, truly spectacular!! :)

Hopefully Aprilia is able to dish out a truly competitive machine for him next year! I have faith in Aprilia & Aleix. The chemistry is great!
