Thirteenth place finish for Tito Rabat at Austin
Tito Rabat had to deal with the challenge of Ducati riders at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas – and he finished strongly, squeezed between Scott Redding (12th) and Hector Barbera (14th).
Rabat continues to accelerate his learning curve in MotoGP and has set a solid platform for his home race at Jerez, the next event on the calendar.
After a cold and windy qualifying the race was run in near perfect sunny and warm conditions.
Tito Rabat: 13th
“I am very happy for this result because today I understood many things by going a little slower at the beginning and then faster towards the end of the race. And in the normal conditions of today’s race I was closer to the front guys and this is good for my confidence. To score points in the opening three races of the season is a very good start and a boost in advance of the next race at home in Jerez.”
