Qatar GP – Friday Quotes From Alvaro
2nd – Alvaro Bautista 2.01.943 (16 laps):
“We are a little far off the times that we did at the beginning of the week. The track isn’t in the best of condition and this is definitely affecting our setting, as I haven’t really felt comfortable on my Aprilia. It was vibrating a lot on the front when we entered the corners, so tomorrow I hope that when the other classes clean the track we can get a better grip from their rubber.
The wind has also been a handicap. We all have good data from the test, so we’ve been able to ride in similar times, but we need to see who is able to carry on improving when the times really drop. Tomorrow we first need to check the state of the track, and then try to improve. If the track is as it was during the two days of testing, then we will be able to continue with our original setting.”
