Alvaro Bautista on his title chances: "I think the most important thing is.."

Alvaro Bautista is in a big lead right now. The Spaniard will go to the summer break with a lead of 31 points. Alvaro spoke to motorsport.com about his expectations regarding the title. "I think the most important thing is to not make mistakes," Bautista said.

"In the Superpole race, using the SCX tyre, I felt more grip but I felt the bike pushing at the front. There were a couple of times I nearly crashed and I didn’t take a risk to follow them [Razgatlioglu and Rea].

"It’s more important not lose a lot of points than to increase the advantage in every race. Donington, here and Magny-Cours, these three tracks are critical, especially here because I never rode the Ducati and we had to use the hard [SC0] rear tyre.

At these tracks, it’s more important to not lose a lot. "At Donington I lost points because I crashed, but without that we could still have increased the advantage. Here we took some advantage, but sincerely I don’t think about this.

I prefer to think about every race [individually], focus on not making mistakes and bring home the maximum."

Problems: I lost a lot in the first braking

Bautista also revealed what was the main problem in the race in Most; "I don’t know why but I was often missing the braking point for the first corner, sometimes too long, sometimes too short," said Bautista.

"The reference was not very clear, maybe because of the wind or something. "I lost a lot in the first braking, and yesterday that was one of my strong points. Today I was not as strong as yesterday. "At the end, Toprak made good laptimes, I tried to follow him, but I was a bit late.

I needed a couple of laps to change the references and push more. By the time I improved my pace, Toprak was a bit far." It is a big advantage for him, but we will see how the Spaniard will cope and if he can reach the title.
