With preparations for the first-ever MotoGP race in India on in full swing, RNF Aprilia has a special gift for Indian MotoGP fans. Honda's Marc Marquez debuted his unique helmet with the Indian flag for Bharat GP on Thursday, and now RNF Aprilia has shown their bikes with Indian flags just before Sunday's main race. In the first-ever MotoGP Bharat GP sprint race, Jorge Martin of Pramac Ducati won. MotoGP Bharat GP's Saturday plans were changed due to rain, and a 'wet' practice was added shortly before the sprint. Despite the fact that the track was practically dry at the end of the 15-minute session and had improved further before the Sprint start, riders were concerned about damp places near critical run-off zones and parts of the starting grid.

Miguel Oliveira finished in 12th place in the sprint race at the Indian MotoGP Grand Prix, in a race that became even more challenging after a setback with his Aprilia. Meanwhile, Raul Fernandez did better than his teammate and finished P9. Nevertheless, the CryptoDATA RNF MotoGP Team rider delivered a consistent performance.

Raul Fernandez said, "Honestly, we are in a good position. I got one point in the Sprint race. We had a quite difficult practice yesterday, but today, I'm really happy that I made it into Q2. I did the time alone and felt that I could enjoy and use the potential of the bike. I'm not at my top level yet but importantly, I know in which aspects I have to improve, especially for tomorrow. I thank the team and Aprilia for always supporting and believing in me. I think this is just the beginning, of course, we have more work to do, but we are not at the results that we want yet. But day by day, my confidence is growing and I'm really happy. The track was crazy in mixed conditions but Dorna did a really good job in managing the situation. We have some good input from the track, so in general, we had a good day."

Miguel Oliveira said, "The situation is difficult, for sure we are not performing as we expected. There are a lot of slow corners that you need to restart and that is not helping us too much. For some reason, we are not able to be that competitive. It also didn't help that I didn't qualify well and struggled a bit today. In the Sprint race, I was a bit better. But a lot of things happened, I had to give away one position as I was told I overtook under the yellow flag and I also had an oil leakage, so it was not easy today. For tomorrow, I wish to be competitive and to finish in the points with a good potential.”
