Bautista’s MotoGP Return at Sepang International Circuit
Alvaro Bautista recently made his MotoGP return at the Sepang International Circuit in a wildcard appearance with Ducati. This came shortly after securing his second WSBK crown.
A Challenging Comeback
Bautista had not competed in a MotoGP round since the 2018 Valencia GP, where he rode a year-old Aspar-run Ducati. Therefore, his return to the premier class proved to be challenging.
Upon his return, Bautista faced difficulties in qualifying. He found himself second-to-last on the grid, indicating that he had some catching up to do in terms of pace.
The struggles continued for Bautista throughout the weekend. In the sprint race, he finished in 22nd place, and in the main grand prix, he managed to climb up to 17th position.
Determination Despite Setbacks
Despite the challenges and disappointing results, Bautista remains determined to make a strong comeback. He realizes the importance of finding his rhythm and adapting to the demands of MotoGP once again.
It is evident that Bautista’s return to MotoGP after a gap of several years has not been easy. However, his strong spirit and unwavering determination will undoubtedly shape his future performances in the premier class.
