Aprilia rider Aleix Espargaro says persistent mechanical failures "cannot happen anymore", after retiring from the Thailand Grand Prix with an electronics problem.
Espargaro was battling Ducati's Danilo Petrucci and on course for a likely top-10 finish when he was forced to peel into the pits two-thirds of the way through the 26-lap Buriram event.
"It was an electronic failure," he explained. "The gearbox was not working, the engine brake was completely locked and I had no control of the throttle. It was almost impossible to arrive to the pit box.
"We have to keep working in a better way, try to understand what happened during the race. We've had a couple of problems this year already, technically."
