last chance for MotoGP riders to fine-tune their bikes before the season’s kick off which will be held in Qatar on the 8th of April. Premier class riders share the Jerez de la Frontera track together for a 3-day testing session and LCR racer Stefan Bradl has proceeded his learning process aboard the RCV213V.
The 22-year Moto2 Champion lapped the Spanish track 64 times throughout the day posting the 10th fastest laptime overall (1’40.983).
Stefan: “It has been a big chance coming to Jerez from Sepang for the first European test. Thanks to the weather conditions the engine was more powerful and I was impressed about the performance of the bike. We had a couple of issues at the beginning of the day with the wheelie and the electronic and we had to adjust a lot of things but step by step we have improved and I could go faster. At the end of the session the tyres were working different compared to Sepang especially the soft one and I was expecting a little bit more grip. Tomorrow we will have to find the way to improve our braking stability but today was a ok”.
