(cafetheology.org) – Eugene Laverty returned to the Superbike World Championship with great goals. The Nordire, who already became world championship with Aprilia, wanted to win again after two difficult years in the MotoGP. It was also the talk of the World Cup title, but the previous course of the season is a big disappointment. The Aprilia RSV4 is not on a par with 2013 when Laverty missed the World Championship by 23 points. At that time, the Aprilia factory won nine runs. Actually, Laverty is only World Cup tenth. No podium has yet been achieved. "Last year, I was the World Cup tenth in the MotoGP, with an old motorbike, and my goal was to win at that time," commented Laverty, talking to cafetheology.org, . In the past MotoGP season, Laverty got a strong start in three races. With fourth place in the chaotic Argentina Grand Prix, the Nordire was the one who secured the points for the Ducati. Laverty also achieved very good results during the rain races in Holland and the Czech Republic, and was rated seventh and sixth. But despite the successes with the 2014-Ducati, Laverty got no further chance for 2017. Laverty was misjudged by the managers? Have the Teammanagers misjudged his talent? "Yes, but there are a lot of riders who are in a similar situation, it's not necessarily about talent, and other things play a role," he says with the MotoGP.

"In my first season, I did not get any good results, the bike was bad," he comments on the 2015 season with the downhill Open-Honda. "In the second year, the bike was better and I was able to increase my results, and in the third season I wanted an even better bike to develop myself, but I did not get that chance, I realized that it 's better to go back to the Superbike World Championship. "Has Laverty learned anything in the two MotoGP years that he can now use in the Superbike World Cup? "Pirelli tires are clearly different from the Michelin and Bridgestone tires." I drove three different tire brands in three years "So far, I have not been able to confirm these advances in the Superbike World Championship, but I think I'm a better driver than I was three years ago, and you never stop learning things "You just have to look at Valentino Rossi, he's almost 40 years old and is still learning new things," Laverty says.

The Milwaukee-Aprilia team is feverishly trying to provide Laverty and team colleague Lorenzo Savadori with a better base to catch the current dominant Kawasaki and Ducatis. "The rest of the season is the key to 2018. We have to win at least one race and be on the podium, so we can think of the fight for the World Cup in winter," says the experienced motorcycle pro The Superbike World Championship is too hard to beat in the winter, but you can not take advantage of the season opener when you finish the season on fifth "Laverty says," We have to improve, and soon! "Laverty was finally lucky. At the end of the race weekend on the Lausitzring, a sensor error prevented a good result in run one. In the second race, the Aprilia driver crashed. "I do not think we could have challenged the top three at the Lausitzring, but fourth place was possible," commented the 13-time runner.
