Friday at the Pirelli French Round, the seventh round of the 2022 WorldSBK season, was compromised by intermittent rain that fell during FP1: not only it made it difficult to extract useful information, but it also allowed the riders to get back to lap in completely wet conditions in FP2.
Therefore, it was a rather complicated free practice for Alvaro Bautista, especially ahead of a weekend in which the weather conditions, although always difficult to predict at the Magny Cours circuit, seem to involve dry races.
“ I can say it was a positive day, both because we got back to work on the bike and above all because from a physical point of view, I felt comfortable straight away. We don’t know what will happen tomorrow but we have to be ready for all situations. The crash? Nothing serious and no consequences for me or the bike”.
