British MotoGP: Bautista has fond memories of Silverstone

'It is a track I like a lot and now we have to make the most of the good form we have hit since Laguna Seca' - Alvaro Bautista
Alvaro Bautista has fond memories of Silverstone, where the Gresini Honda rider scored his maiden MotoGP pole start in 2012.

Bautista narrowly missed out on fourth place at Brno last Sunday following an entertaining dice with Yamaha's Valentino Rossi and has been in a rich vein of form since Laguna Seca prior to the summer break.

The Spanish rider has high hopes for Silverstone on the RC213V as the Gresini team continues to make good progress with the Honda.

“I am feeling very happy after such a positive weekend at Brno. We managed to do a good job and overcome the problems we found on Friday,” said Bautista.

“On Saturday we took a big step forward and qualified on the front row in second place and then in Sunday I was able to pick my race pace up from practice.

“Overall it was a positive weekend and my feeling with the bike improved a lot, which gives me and the team confidence going to the next race.

“We have good memories of Silverstone from last season when I set my first ever pole position in MotoGP and had a good race,” he added.

“It is a track I like a lot and now we have to make the most of the good form we have hit since Laguna Seca.

“Silverstone is a long and fast track which I enjoy riding but we need to find a set-up quickly because you never know what the weather will be like.”
