Today’s Australian Grand Prix at Phillip Island was a difficult experience for Tito Rabat, who showed his customary resolve to battle on in trying circumstances.

All the lost track time due to adverse weather conditions prevented Rabat from finding a confidence-inspiring set-up with his Honda RC213V machine, but he gained more precious data by finishing in 16th position.

Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS now heads back to the Far East to complete the final leg of the flyaway triple-header at the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia.

Tito Rabat: 16th
“Today’s race was the end to a very difficult and frustrating weekend but I am happy to have ridden sensibly and finished the race to get some data and experience that will help me in the future. But it was probably the most difficult weekend of the season for me. The weather hasn’t helped me at all this weekend with almost every session not running in normal conditions. That cost me laps to improve my confidence on the bike and I started the race not really knowing how the bike or the Michelin tyres were going to perform. I will keep learning and pushing to try and be more competitive in the final two races but to finish more than one minute behind the winner is a disaster.”
