6th Álvaro Bautista: 1.36.419 (22 laps)
“The truth is that today was pretty much our first session in the dry but I had a problem with my first bike and had to take the second one. At the end of the session I ran into a bit of traffic and wasn’t able to get a good lap together. I’m not too pleased with sixth place but I’m confident we can improve the engine and set-up of my number one bike. This is our home race and we can’t let Simoncelli win here. I’ll be going out tomorrow to beat him and win the race. It’s an important one and the tactic is to win it whatever way we can. I’ll be doing my part with that. The KTMs are also going really well at this track and I think it will be a group race. It is difficult to escape here so we’ll try and run with the front group and I’m sure it will be a scrap.”

“My pace is good here and the general feeling is that we’ve had a positive session. It was a shame we had a second row start nicked off us right at the end but we have some small room for improvement and we’ll work on that in the warm-up. I tried to lap alone towards the end because I’ve learned this year that getting a tow isn’t much use in this class. I know this track really well and I’m really motivated for the race, although we have to be a little cautious about the race.”
