Bautista: “I don’t know why I crashed”

Spaniard takes a tumble in Texas but bounces back to get into the points

Alvaro Bautista (Pull&Bear Aspar Team) had a difficult weekend at the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas, after an impressive P4 beforehand in Argentina. Not making it through to Q2 and facing a fight back, the former 125 World Champion suffered a crash in the race but remounted to finish fifteenth and score a point.

The next race should be happier hunting ground, as Bautista returns to a home race for the Spanish GP at Jerez.

Alvaro Bautista, P15: “I don't know why I crashed. I was on the same line and going through the corner in the usual way. It is a shame because it hasn't been a good weekend for us, but with the pace we found we could have been fighting for a top ten finish, close to the factory guys. Now we need to get our feeling back at Jerez, and see if in front of the home fans there we can be competitive again like we have been in the previous Grands Prix.”
