Alvaro – Quote after Quali 1, Assen

 In Uncategorised

1st Álvaro Bautista: 1.39.510 (22 laps):
“I’m really happy because even though it’s only the first day we’ve lapped really well. I’ve improved my lap time from last year and even improved on the lap record at this track so I’m very satisfied. We didn’t have the perfect set-up this morning and I crashed at the end of the session. But in qualifying we changed the geometry of my Aprilia and I felt much more comfortable, to the point that I was able to set that lap time. The adjustments to the engine also worked and we’ve gained in acceleration. Because of the way the track is here you need the engine to be working perfectly. At the end of qualifying there was a lot of traffic on track and I was only able to get one fast lap in. Hopefully we can improve tomorrow and set a better pace – I’m sure everybody else will so we can’t go to sleep.”
