Good base set-up established for rookie Bradl

Wasting no time after Saturday's poor conditions, all MotoGP™ riders were out on track by shortly after 11am local time on Sunday to begin their working plan on the final day of the last pre-season Test in Jerez, gathering as much data as possible ahead the first race.

Race simulations were the order of the day for a number of teams in the afternoon including the LCR Team and its rookie Stefan Bradl, who has concluded his Spanish Test session in 10th position overall (1’40.098), quickly adapting to the RCV213V.

Stefan Bradl:
"After yesterday’s adverse weather, we had a lot of things to test today. So we tried several lengths of swingarm, several front fork adjustments and some things to get more braking stability. At the end we achieved a good base set-up which I am very happy with. At the end of the day I did a long run with a consistent pace and on soft tyres I could even have improved my lap time, but I got stopped by some riders. However, we were not here for the fastest lap time and I think we made our best in the last three days."
