BACK TO BACKOctober 28, 2023
It was a very peculiar Friday at the Circuito de Jerez de la Frontera Angel Nieto.
The rather low temperature, in fact, did not allow the circuit to dry out after the rain that fell on Thursday, thus forcing most of the riders later to skip FP1.
The sun then came out mid-morning and the afternoon’s free practice went smoothly with Alvaro Bautista finishing the session in third position, 320 thousandths of a second behind Toprak Razgatlioglu’s (Yamaha) best lap-time.

“We can say it was a good half-day’s work. Obviously with the track so damp we decided not to come out of the box for FP1. In the afternoon, however, the conditions were better and despite a small crash without any consequences, the feeling was good. I had fun and that’s the goal for tomorrow as well.“
