Alvaro Bautista hopes home fans can help bolster Aragon race weekend

 In MotoGP, News


The Team GO&FUN Honda Gresini squad heads this weekend to the Motorland Aragon for the round number 14 of the 2014 MotoGP World Championship, the third on Spanish soil after Jerez and Barcelona.

This weekend’s event will be the fifth time that the Aragon circuit has hosted a GP since joining the calendar in 2010 and Sunday’s MotoGP contest in Spain will also be the 800th race in the premier-class class of Grand Prix racing, since the World Championships were first introduced in 1949.

Fourth and very close to a podium finish last year, Alvaro Bautista returns on home soil after another tough weekend: eighth uner che checkered flag at Misano, the Spaniard is continuing to be slowed down by grip issues that are not allowing him to make the most of the potential of his Factory Honda RC213V.

“Aragon is a very special track, being characterized by fast corners mixed with some tight ones and also a very long straight; it’s another circuit where last year we were competitive, even though the references of 2013 at this time have little value. At the moment we are struggling and we have a lot of problems; I hope that the atmosphere of my home race can help us to find a solution, because in this situation is really difficult to get some good lap times, even if we push at the maximum. I’m very motivated and I really want to get back to work together with the team, looking for a solution in order to find myself more comfortable on the bike; the support of my family and of the many friends who will be on the track this weekend will be also helpful”.
