Disappointed Bautista struggling for feeling with the bike in difficult conditions

 In MotoGP, News

The French Grand Prix left a bitter taste in the mouths of Team San Carlo Honda Gresini. Both Alvaro Bautista and Michele Pirro were unable to feel as comfortable on their bikes in the wet conditions as they had in the dry over previous days. They will analyse data from the race alongside the team engineers in order to improve upon this for the next round: The Catalan GP.

Alvaro Bautista (10th) “I didn’t feel in tune with the bike and I couldn’t keep up with the group of riders ahead of me. The only option was to try and finish the race as best I could, and that is what I managed to do. I’m rather disappointed with how things went today.”

Fausto Gresini “Today was a really tough day. Alvaro didn’t have any feeling with the bike in the wet and experienced the same problems as at Jerez. He had a hard time of things and attempted damage limitation by finishing the race. It is a shame, because we were doing well in the dry and had taken a big step forward in the wet, but it didn’t turn out as we expected. We will analyse the data to see what happened.”
