Bautista has an impressive history in MotoGP, having spent nine years in the class riding for Suzuki, Honda, Aprilia, and Ducati. However, this weekend’s race will mark his first MotoGP appearance since the 2018 Valencia GP, adding more excitement to the event.

The wildcard entry adds an extra layer of intrigue to the race, as fans eagerly await Bautista’s return to the premier class of motorcycle racing.
As Bautista prepares to make his MotoGP comeback, racing enthusiasts around the world are eager to witness his performance and see how he fares against the established riders in the championship. His skill and determination are sure to make for an exhilarating race at Sepang.
