Alvaro Bautista: Post-QP1 Quote, Japan
“Today we had very little time in which to work, because this morning the track was wet and we had barely any dry laps. In the afternoon the weather was a little better, and we could ride more. I tried various adjustments to the Aprilia’s geometry, because at this track a good feeling on the brakes and under acceleration is important.
We put some things to one side, and others we will keep. The engine needs work to get more acceleration, so we’ll see if the weather is kind and gives us a chance to do so. The corners are slow here, so we will be almost at a standstill for them.”
