Rabat: “We are not where we expected to be right now”

Rabat: “We are not where we expected to be right now”

Tito Rabat heads into this weekend’s Italian GP, the 150th GP race of his career, still chasing that elusive first win of the season.

Rabat, who celebrated his 26th birthday yesterday, dominated proceedings in Mugello last year, claiming pole position on Saturday before going on to set a new circuit record on his way to his third win of the season on Sunday.

It is this success that Rabat is keen to repeat this weekend, after getting his title defence back on track with podium finishes in the previous two races in Jerez and Le Mans. The Spaniard currently lies sixth in the championship standings, 36 points adrift of series leader Johann Zarco, a gap he is determined to close in Mugello.

Tito Rabat:
“The last two races have been good, but that won’t change my approach. I always go into the weekend ready to work hard together with the team, to try and fight for the win on Sunday and that will be the same in Mugello. What does change is the situation and the situation is different this year compared to last. We are not where we expected to be right now, but I’m happy with my bike, happy with my team and happy with my performance, so if I focus on the job at hand and give my maximum like always then I know the results will come. Mugello is one of my favourite tracks; it’s so fast, so nice to ride and the atmosphere is always electric. I’m looking forward to the weekend ahead.”
