Bautista: “I'm confident that we'll take a big step forward”

Aprilia Racing Team Gresini’s Alvaro Bautista is looking forward to racing with their new seamless shift gearbox at Mugello.

That is not the only update the Italian manufacturer will debut at their home Grand Prix either, as Bautista looks to build on his fifteenth placed finish at Le Mans.

Alvaro Bautista:
“At Mugello we'll be taking a lot of technical changes onto the track, beginning with the seamless gearbox that I tested at Jerez with good results, so we are very motivated as we approach this round. We'll also have some other upgrades available in various areas of the bike, so I'm confident that we'll be able to take a big step forward. We expect this weekend to be more demanding than usual because we will have a lot of things to test and not much time to do it, but we are ready to work hard. If we manage to find a good setup on a difficult track like Mugello I think this will be helpful to us in the upcoming Grand Prix races as well, so I'm anxious to get onto the track to begin checking the quality of the technical advancements. Our main goal is still bike development, although I won't hide the fact that achieving a good result in Aprilia's home Grand Prix would be nice.”
