PIC: Alvaro Bautista’s 2013 Gresini MotoGP colours

First look at Alvaro Bautista's 2013 Gresini Honda MotoGP colours
This is the new-for-2013 Go&Fun Honda Gresini livery with which Alvaro Bautista will race in this year's MotoGP World Championship.

Former factory Suzuki rider Bautista took his first MotoGP pole and podiums in his debut season with Gresini in 2012.

Speaking at the unveiling of his new colours in Milan, the Spaniard said: "It has been a brilliant day! It is really nice to be back with Team Gresini for a second season.

"The new Team Go&Fun Honda Gresini colours are suitably vibrant and we made some great progress with the machine itself in the recent tests in Malaysia.

"Now we will look to confirm that progress in the next session at Jerez and make sure we're ready for the first race in Qatar on 7th April."

Rookie team-mate Bryan Staring will also have the same white and green livery on his CRT-spec FTR Honda, as will Gresini's Moto3 riders Lorenzo Baldassarri and Niccolò Antonelli.

"Everything is new for me: a new bike, new team, new colours... it's a fantastic feeling," said Australian Staring. "It was great to be up on stage next to a true champion like Alvaro and two great young kids in Niccolò and Lorenzo. I am sure this will be a fantastic year for me and I hope to pay Team Go&Fun Honda Gresini back with my performances on track."

Go&Fun has replaced San Carlo as title sponsor for Gresini's MotoGP and Moto3 teams. Ratthapark Wilairot and Doni Tata Pradita will ride Gresini's Moto2 machines, with backing from Honda and Federal Oil respectively.
