SBK: Bautista: "I never raced with Ducati in Most, but I’m confident"


It’s the last round before the summer break, and Alvaro Bautista wants to make a good impression in the Czech Republic as he aims for the highest step on the podium after Scott Redding’s performance last year.

Alvaro feels confident: "This will be my first time on this circuit with the Ducati Panigale V4," he explained. "It’s going to be very important for me to quickly find the right direction in terms of set-up and, at the same time, start working on the different tire solutions. But I’m also really confident in the light of the great race we hd on Sunday after Race 1."

At Aruba, the spotlight is focused on Rinaldi: "We’re going to Most after the good weekend in Donington where the sensation with the bike was really good. I can’t wait  to get on the track and find the same sensation. I feel like I'm in good shape, and the chemistry with the team and the bike is the right one. I think this may be an important weekend for us, and I can't hide the fact that my goal is to always fight for the podium."
