The Japan GP was a complicated GP for the Reale Avintia Racing Team riders.
On the one hand, Karel Abraham crossed the finish line 18º so he could not score any points as he was entering outside the Top-15.
On the other hand, Tito Rabat could not race the GP of Japan due to the inflammation of his right hand as a result of an incident on Saturday that did not allow the Spanish rider from facing the race with guarantees.
In addition, the penalty for the use of an eighth engine in this season would force him to start from the pit lane. Tito decided not to risk in order to be in good condition in the GPs of Australia and Malaysia that are held from October 25 to 27 and November 1 to 3 respectively.

“It has been a difficult race although the meteorological conditions have been quite favorable. I had a problem at the beginning and I got last. I had some problems that made it more difficult to overtake riders, however I was able to overtake three. We have to improve in the first laps so we don’t waste much time. Finally, in this race there have been only been two crash which is rare and we were not able to win more positions. “
