During the Portimao weekend, some Moto2 riders were in discussion for the second Aprilia place next year. Ultimately, Aprilia Motorsport Director Massimo Rivola received a series of rejections.

In addition to Marco Bezzecchi, Joe Roberts was also considered a hot candidate for the last available MotoGP place. Both are among the newcomers of the season. As an American, Robert would have been of interest to MotoGP promoter Dorna.

While Bezzecchi knows the power and support of VR46 behind him, Roberts is more on his own. For 2021 he is moving from the American Racing Team to Italtrans. This Italian team became Moto2 World Champion in 2020 with Enea Bastianini.

Roberts is said to have been the last candidate for Aprilia who was spoken to more intensively. Why did Roberts ultimately refuse? "I liked the call from Aprilia," he is quoted by the 'Gazzetta dello Sport'.

"I know I would have been quick, but I want to win. And Italtrans is the best team for that. I like the atmosphere. Everyone seems like friends. Besides, I don't want to come to MotoGP because of my passport, but because I deserve it. "

Aprilia will continue with Bradley Smith and Lorenzo Savadori alongside Aleix Espargaro. Roberts will try to fight consistently for podiums and wins over the next year. 2020 was his third and so far most successful season in the Moto2 class.

Before this year, Roberts made it into the World Championship points only four times in 40 races, one of which was tenth. In 2020, he made headlines with the pole position in Qatar, which had a long lasting effect due to the subsequent Corona break.

In Brno Roberts was third for the first and so far only time on the podium. Another pole followed at Le Mans. The 23-year-old finished the season in seventh place with 94 points. In all of his previous years, Roberts had accumulated 15 counters.
