Tito Rabat finished a morale-boosting 18th in today’s Malaysina Grand Prix at Sepang having openly admitted that he struggled in the rain during practice and qualifying.

Rabat’s rookie season in MotoGP continues to be a steep learning curve and the tricky conditions at the Sepang International Circuit and completing the race distance was another step in that process.

For the season finale at Valencia in two weeks Rabat is hoping for a weekend of settled weather to consolidate his first season in the premier class.

Tito Rabat: 18th
“Considering the disaster of qualifying in the rain and my struggle for confidence on a wet track it is very satisfying to make a good step in the race. Completing the race distance in difficult conditions gives me a lot of experience for the future. Today I knew my limit especially with the lean angle and I did not go over it even though I would like to be closer to the front.”
