Aprilia General Manager Massimo Rivola is convinced that the team still needs to improve their motorcycle if they want to have more power in the racing market for the coming season.

Aprilia has made great progress in recent years after, with the help of concessions, they managed to break into the best teams in the MotoGP class from the start. Because of this, many racers whose contracts expire at the end of this season will want to sit on their motorcycles in the future.

Fabio Quartararo is one of the racers most often linked by the media with a move to Aprilia. The world champion of the season admitted in a recent interview that he is in talks with various teams.

At Aprilia, however, they are of the opinion that they need to further improve their motorcycle if they want to ensure cooperation with one of the current best racers in the elite class.

When asked if they had been in contact with Fabio Quartararo, Rivola told reporters:

"First of all, I have to say that we are very satisfied with all four of our racers. Of course, this does not mean that we are not active in the racing market. We need to check the situation on the market and find out what the best solutions are for us."

"The most important thing is to improve the motorcycle, because that way we will have more influence in the racing market."

Rivola added that the team will not rush to make a decision regarding their racing line-up for the coming season.

"We will take our time. We are in no hurry. It is much more important that we have a better motorcycle.”
