Bautista inspired by Misano podium

Team principal Fausto Gresini was certainly a happy man after Misano: “Finally I enjoyed myself at the last race and we were able to secure a result that could prove important to our future. It was so exciting to see our colours on the podium again!

“Alvaro did a great job and judged the race perfectly, rebuilding his confidence in the front end of the bike and pushing with decision at the right time. Showa's engineers also did a great job.”

Bautista's CRT riding team-mate Michele Pirro also performed well at Misano, claiming tenth place and just four seconds from the top CRT rider.

“Misano was a fantastic and exciting weekend with all the events organised for Marco [Simoncelli] and the result has given me a lot of confidence,” he said.

“We started from scratch at Misano with the goal of making a strong finish to the championship and I am confident we can continue in the same way from here.

“We have closed the gap to the top CRTs and I am confident that in the next rounds we can be fighting to be ahead of them. I like Aragon a lot and I actually made my debut with Team Gresini here in Moto2 a couple of years ago. ”
