Espargaro has been pessimistic in the last two series

– Poor results obtained in the last three MotoGP races frustrated Aleix Espargaro.

The opportunity to win the world title is not closed.

However, the Aprilia racer said the conditions he was facing now showed that his team was not worthy to compete in the title race.

At the Australian GP yesterday (16/10), Espargaro was only able to finish in ninth position. Previously, at the Thai GP, he finished in eleventh place.

While in the Japanese GP the achievement was worse. Namely, finishing in 16th position.

The 33-year-old racer revealed that in the last three races, which have entered the crucial weeks of the season, his motorbike had problems with the electronic system.

At Phillip Island last weekend, Espargaro said the electronic traction control system on his RS-GP motorbike had reduced engine power .

As a result, he failed to fight at the forefront.

The same thing happened to Espargaro's teammate, Maverick Vinales.

The Spaniard even called his motorbike a problem and ran slower than the Moto2 motorbike. Vinales finally only finished in 17th position.

''The traction control system makes the engine power weak. I'm so frustrated. I've tried various ways, but there's nothing I can do behind the wheel. It really makes me angry,'' complained Espargaro reported by Crash.

Espargaro now has 206 points and remains in third place in the drivers' standings. The distance with Francesco Bagnaia as the leader of the standings is now 27 points.

While the gap with Fabio Quartararo who is in second place is 13 points.

What makes Espragaro even more frustrated is that in Australia he actually has the potential to be strong. In the middle of the race, he had recorded the second fastest time.

However, in the last laps the bike lost even more power until finally it was only able to finish 4.548 seconds away from Alex Rins (Suzuki Ecstar) who won the highest podium.
