Bautista: “I didn't have much time to relax”

Bautista: “I didn't have much time to relax”

Alvaro Bautista spent the summer break undergoing rehab on his right forearm after experiencing arm pump issues at the Sachsenring.

The Spaniard will line up alongside his new teammate Stefan Bradl for the first time at the Indianapolis GP. Bautista enjoyed a positive first half of the season, managing to finish in the points in 6 out of nine races, with a best result of tenth at the Catalan GP. He currently lies 17th in the MotoGP™ World Championship standings with 13 points.

Alvaro Bautista: “During the summer break unfortunately I didn't have much time to relax. I would have liked to have spent some time on the beach, but it just wasn't to be. In fact, after the Sachsenring race, my right forearm which had been operated on for compartment syndrome swelled up so I had to do physical therapy and undergo various medical checks. In any case, I'll be going to Indianapolis very focused and intent on picking up on the development work carried out in the first half of the championship: Indianapolis is a very particular track since it was made to be raced on in the opposite direction, but we want to continue gathering important data here as well in order to define next year's bike. I'd also like to welcome Bradl to the team: being able to count on a competitive team mate is definitely positive and I hope that together we'll be able to move forward more quickly on developing the RS-GP.”
