The press conference of Dutch Grand Prix, which takes place this weekend at the popular and mythical Assen track, had a very funny anecdote. Well, curious. The protagonists should be champion fabio quartararo (Yamaha)leader of MotoGP World Championship with 172 points, the veteran catalan Aleix Espargaró (Aprilia, 138)second in the championship, and the French Johann Zarco (Ducati, 111)third at the moment.
But Espargaró apparently had a connection problem on his trip and, finally, could not be present at the press conference, which was held, as usual, at five in the afternoon. So the talk with the media began with Quartararo and Zarco talking about their things and, above all, with the Ducati rider making a tremendous (and real, and true, and deserved) praise of “as Fabio is capable, despite his youth, of carrying the weight of pressure in a spectacular, admirable way. I think any other pilot would feel that pressure And yet, Fabio is not only capable of winning, but when, at the next Grand Prix, they tell him that they have to win again, he wins again”.

And, suddenly, the ‘Devil’ noticed that his cell phone was either vibrating or ringing, despite being silent, and he took it out of his pocket and shouted, well, he didn’t actually shout, but he raised his voice in the face of the journalist who was interviewing them and said “eye! eye!, who calls us Aleix”. And, indeed, it was Aleix Espargaró, it is not known from where, it is assumed that he had just landed at an airport, Amsterdam, perhaps, and apologizing for his absence, announcing war in the race on Sunday.
