Catalunya GP: 250cc – Post Race Quotes

 In Uncategorised


2nd Álvaro Bautista:
“At the start I had a good pace, but wasn’t too strong to avoid any possible mistake. Little by little we went faster and faster. In the final lap I tried to close every gap, but made an error in the La Caixa corner; I hit neutral instead of first and Marco was able to pass me. Then there was no time for me to pass him again, with so little space before the line. I am a little disappointed, but they are 20 valuable points and I rode an intelligent race. The most positive point has been our speed.”

8th Héctor Faubel:
“I think that I did everything well. A good start, a place in the front group… but with ten laps to go my arm started to hurt. I don’t know why that was, because all weekend I’ve had injections to avoid the pain. At the midway point I couldn’t stand it anymore, and I went easy until I finished eighth. I am happy, because it was my home race and my best result of the year so far. It was a pity to not be in the top five with the Aprilia RSA, but with a rest and some physiotherapy I’ll be back for the next race.”



3rd Gábor Talmacsi
“I am very happy with third place. This weekend was easy for us in terms of finding our Aprilia setup. At the start I didn’t get away well, but little by little I made moves up through the riders. It was difficult, because the bike was moving around a lot when braking and that impeded the fight for the win. From the start of the race I tried to keep my concentration and not make any mistakes; a podium is a good result for us today. We keep picking up points, and this is the important thing. Today we weren’t at 100% but we still have to be delighted with what we achieved. We now just have to work on the front end of the bike ahead of the next few rounds.”

9th Sergio Gadea:
“I pushed hard right from the start, and didn’t want to let the chance of a good result get away. I gave my all, and it is a pity that with the pace I had I went off track. We were passing each other cleanly, and when I braked there was some extra space which I only noticed with my hand off the lever and no time to react. It’s strange, because it wasn’t like it was the end of the race; I can understand why that would happen at the end, but not at that moment. I am happy with Aprilia, the bike worked to perfection and now I hope to continue with the same dynamic at Donington.”

19th Pere Tutusaus:
“It wasn’t one of my best races, despite my finishing in the top 19. I don’t think that was where I should have been. I think that we can and should do more, and I hope that in the next race I can get the best out of myself. The warmup left the track humid and made things hard, plus the weekend as a whole was a little complicated with a rear brake problem. We have to try and improve like always in Donington.”
