Alvaro Bautista: Post-Q2 Quote, Japan
“It was a shame because I ran into a group of riders at the end of the session and only got one good lap in, which was before I’d got into my rhythm, but I’m happy because our pace was good and I’m only four tenths off pole. I would have preferred to be on the front row but it wasn’t to be and the important thing is that we’re not as far back on the grid as we have been recently.
Let’s see if we can get a good start tomorrow and be in the front group from the off. The important thing will be to stay concentrated and try to stay in the fight for victory until the end. The times have been close throughout practice so it looks like being a fun, close race.”
