Less than a month before the Superbike World Championship officially begins, Álvaro Bautista has just finished his third preseason test at the Autodromo del Algarve in Portimao, a totally new circuit for the manchego.
The two days that the test lasted the Spanish has achieved the third best record, in addition to being the best Ducati both days. Bautista has commented on his feelings on this new track for him and his general conclusions from the penultimate preseason tests.
In Australia it will be important to work towards the first race
The Talavera rider explained how his first contact with the Portimao circuit was like this: “ I have found a very difficult circuit, with many ups and downs, difficult to find the references. The first day I was quite lost, I sneaked into all the curves, the references were not clear at all and it was much more complicated than I expected. But in the end it is one more circuit, you have to find the tricks.
Bautista has confessed that it is important to familiarize yourself with this circuit "ahead of the September race, to be clear about what the circuit is like and what references can be used. "The Talaverano stressed that despite the difficulties," they have been two very good days of testing."
Despite the fact that they are running out of time, at Aruba.it Racing Ducati they have not made substantial changes compared to the last test in Jerez and this is what Bautista has commented: " We haven't tried many thingsBecause the track was new, for me it was complicated, it was a bit bumpy, it was very windy and the temperatures were not too high, so we dedicated ourselves to having a good feeling with the bike. We have only made small modifications that have always been for the better."
The next stop will be the Australia tests to be held at the Phillip Island circuit on February 18 and 19. On the circuit on the 19th he commented: It is a very peculiar circuit, with very fast corners, different from these two tracks where we have been riding, so we will work towards the weekend, rather than to evolve the bike. It will be important to have good references and working towards the first race of the season to try to arrive as well as possible”.
