It may well be a coincidence, but the Portuguese driver always has knocked out the competition in a race in the rain. His victories in MotoGP demonstrate this, especially those obtained in 2022 only on these occasions. Miguel Oliveira not so happy to be called a “rain rider“, but apparently he and KTM have shown incredible consistency especially in these circumstances. Who knows if it will be repeated with Aprilia too… Certainly the Noale-based manufacturer has repeatedly underlined the great trust placed both in him and in Raul Fernandez. The latter will just be al second year in the premier class, a different story for Oliveira. So much so that Massimo Rivola joins him with Espargaro and Vinales in the battle for the big booty. There is optimism in the Venetian house, but the team led by Razali is no less: all the staff finished with the smile the first tests in Valencia. After the last difficult year with Yamaha you aim very high. Given the 2022 experienced by Aprilia, it’s not really absurd dream bigrather.
