Bautista targeting strong season finale

The Rizla Suzuki rider wants to convert his recent promising form into a good result in the final race of 2011.

Álvaro Bautista will aim to end the 2011 season on a positive note after a difficult past ten days for all those involved in MotoGP.

The Spanish rider is approaching his home race at Valencia with the intention of turning his recent good form into a rewarding result, and will also strive to put on a display to honour the memory of the late Marco Simoncelli.

“I am really looking forward to going to the Valencia race. It has been a tough time for all of us since Sepang, but I am ready for the last race and the fact that it is in my home country always makes it a special occasion,” said Bautista.

“I have done well in the last few races, and my Suzuki has felt great, but the results have not arrived so we need to put that right. My target for the weekend is to fight to the maximum, finish the race with a good result and dedicate it to Marco. We had so many huge battles together – I will use these memories positively in Valencia.”
