Alvaro Bautista ready to get back to work with positive attitude at Austin

 In MotoGP, News


The second round of the 2015 MotoGP season, scheduled on the track at Austin, Texas, has Aprilia continuing its growth and development project.

Alvaro Bautista’s performance at Qatar in particular would have been important to have a “snapshot” of the progress made by Aprilia Racing Team Gresini, since this is the testing spirit with which the team is facing this first part of the season – as we know that sadly was not to be, come the race itself.

In any case, the American round will provide the setting for a second and important test bench.

“In Texas we’ll be taking on a completely different track than the one that hosted the first Grand Prix of the year. During the winter test sessions at Valencia, Jerez and Sepang the bike consistently performed the same way basically, whereas in Qatar we were facing new situations, but we don’t know if that had to do with the particular characteristics of the track or the particular racing conditions with not much grip on the tarmac. So I’m anxious to get onto the track in Austin, a track with some hard braking sections and long straight stretches where we’ll be able to check some important things concerning the way the RS-GP performs and continue our development work on the bike. It is essential for us to find the right motivation straight away after our disappointment in the first Grand Prix, where I was unable to complete even the first lap of the race, and get back to work with a positive attitude.”
