Fitter Bautista excited about Sachsenring
13 July 2011 – Álvaro Bautista is thoroughly looking forward to this weekend’s German MotoGP, with the Suzuki rider now back up to full fitness levels. In the Italian race at the start of the month, the Spaniard was challenging for a top six finish which was eventually lost due to a front end slide. He now hopes for a similar placing at the Sachsenring.
“I cannot wait for the race to come - it will not be soon enough for me!” he said. “I made some really big steps at Mugello in both the race and the test. We now have all that information to use at Sachsenring and the rest of the tracks this season.
“It’s not an easy track to get the bike setup right for, but when you do it’s great fun to ride at. It’s about a lot of edge grip, so we will have to work on that and get the bike setup as quickly as we can.”
