Bautista And Redding Back To Europe As MotoGP Heads To Sweeping Brno

After the return to action from mid-season break at Indianapolis, the Team GO&FUN Honda Gresini heads straight back to Europe this week to prepare for the round 11 of the 2014 campaign, the Grand Prix České Republiky, at the sweeping Brno track.

Alvaro Bautista will try to forget the disappointment of Indianapolis, where he was involved in a crash after just four corners from the start: the Spaniard, fifth last year at Brno after a thrilling battle with Valentino Rossi, will try first of all to find a solution to the rear grip issues on his Honda RC213V with the help of his team and Showa technicians, and thus regain the confidence which early in the season had led him to be among the fastest riders.

Fresh from the first Open Class win of the season, thanks to the ninth place finish in the United States, his teammate Scott Redding arrives at Brno with the utmost motivation, determined to confirm itself as the leading “Production Racer” rider and even try to reduce the gap from some Factory spec machines.

ALVARO BAUTISTA “We want to forget as soon as possible the Indianapolis weekend, in order to get to Brno motivated and full of charge. We will find a very different track from the one we faced in the last Grand Prix, wide and characterized by really fast changes of direction; last year we were competitive, so we expect to be able to find a good feeling with the bike also this year, although at the moment we are struggling. Of course, we will give our best, as always, and especially it will be important to work well with the team and with Showa technicians to try to fix the rear grip issues that made ​​us struggle in the last few races”.

SCOTT REDDING “Brno is not one of my favourite circuits, however with this bike my riding style is different compared to the past and therefore it suits a lot of tracks. In fact, I’ve never loved Sachsenring, but this year I was fast there. We just need to see the conditions once we get there, and then try to replicate the good job done in Indianapolis, maybe taking another step forward and trying to close the gap to some Factory guys. It’s going to be hard because like I said Brno is not one of my favourite circuits but now I have a strong motivation because I know that I’m growing step by step, so I want to keep this rhythm and keep learning”.

FAUSTO GRESINI “We arrive in Brno in a very strange situation: on the one hand, we really hope that Bautista can change direction, since lately he struggled a lot. It’s clear that we don’t like this situation, and we will do everything to find a solution, possibly trying major changes to the bike set-up. On the other hand, Scott returned to action after the summer break even stronger, and in Indianapolis we have reaped the fruits of this growth. Now the goal is to keep moving forward”.
