Álvaro Bautista: 2010 season review

Álvaro Bautista: 2010 season review

motogp.com looks back over the campaign of each premier class rider with a video which compiles the most pivotal moments of their year.

Another rookie in the premier class for 2010 Rizla Suzuki’s Álvaro Bautista encountered an eventful debut campaign which had considerable highs and some trying moments for the former 125cc World Champion.

A baptism of fire saw Bautista crash out in Qatar and after recovering with a top-ten finish at Jerez a motocross training accident prior to Le Mans meant he missed Round 3 and faced a fight to regain his fitness, following a fractured collarbone.

Bautista responded and after reaching a more comfortable level on the GSV-R scored a fifth-placed finish at Catalunya. A tough run of races after saw him fail to finish three in a row, but six top-ten finishes in the final eight rounds – including fifth at Sepang – served notice of the potential which he will hope to capitalise on further next year.

Remaining with Suzuki in 2011 Bautista will continue what was a promising progression in 2010, one which you can review in the attached motogp.com video.
