Alvaro Bautista was able to work on his dry set-up this morning but after struggling for rear traction with his Honda RC213V the Spaniard was denied the opportunity to improve in the afternoon by the inclement weather.
Alvaro Bautista (9th 2’02”872)“Unfortunately we have only had half a day to work here. We didn’t have much traction in the dry this morning and we were struggling for pace mid-corner and under acceleration. We weren’t able to try anything this afternoon so it’s all postponed until tomorrow. Anyway we are confident because I think the solution is quite obvious and we think we know how to fix the problem.”
Fausto Gresini “We didn’t need the downpour this afternoon, because it has set the team back and they were denied the opportunity to fix the rear traction problem that Bautista was having here and the CRT boys didn’t get the chance to find a set-up here for Pirro. All that work has been put off until tomorrow, so hopefully we get the weather we need to complete it.”
