MotoGP Assen: Bautista: I’ll be more cautious

“It's a difficult track with a slow first section and then some faster sections in the second half. It's not easy to find a compromise with the setting to suit both halves of the track but we will try. Obviously the weather is usually a factor here too and you can sometimes get damp sections and dry sections but that's Holland!”

On the other side of the Gresini garage, CRT rookie Bryan Staring arrives at Assen on a high after scoring his first MotoGP points with 14th in Catalunya.

“After a positive result in the Catalan Grand Prix, where I scored my first World Championship points, I go to Holland with a different approach,” said the Australian.

“I feel motivated and confident about this race especially because I finally won't have to spend time learning the track because I already know it. I really like Assen and I will be able to start work on the machine straight away.

“I am desperate to do well this weekend and get the most out of the bike so that I can show my potential.”

Dear Bautista Do not judge your braking point by where other riders brake. They can brake later into a corner if they have more feel. Instead, pay attention to your own grip levels and brake accordingly. There is no shame in braking a bit early. Finally -if you must crash- take a factory Honda rider out for once. Regards Everyone who watches motoGP.
