The premier class riders undertook their second day of practices beneath the floodlights of Losail circuit with two night session continuing to familiarize themselves with the new prototypes ahead tomorrow’s first qualifying session at 19:55 local time.
Rookie Stefan Bradl's integration to the premier class continued to gather impressive pace as the LCR Honda rider timed in ninth fastest producing a lap time of 1’56.571. After yesterday’s first run the German rider concentrated on adjusting front-end feeling slightly improving his pace throughout today’s two sessions.
Stefan: “Today I rode the bike: yesterday the bike was riding me! We made a big improvement compared to yesterday. Already after few laps I was capable to improve my pace and I immediately had a good balance. We improved the bike handling and the front feeling using new tyres and being more precise in every corner but I am still missing some confidence in the fast corners. Today we are also closer to the front and this is the place where we like to be”.
