Thirteenth and sixteenth positions have been POWER ELECTRONICS Aspar riders in the inaugural session of the 2012 season. Randy De Puniet was again the reference to the new MotoGP prototypes, everything and has made several modifications to the ART in the gearbox and suspensions, which have taken valuable time. The Frenchman, as his teammate Aleix Espargaró, has complained of the lack of grip, but is aware that tomorrow will improve the condition of the asphalt. If the Frenchman has adapted to give their best in this first session of GP Tasting, mate Aleix has been no less. The Granollers has lived several drawbacks for rebounds in the front and sliding on the back, and finally achieved a modicum of improvement for end to 4.2 seconds back as the fourth best driver CRT.
Randy De Puniet 13 º 1.59.985 (15 laps): "We're back to being the first CRT, which I find very positive. On the other hand I have suffered enough at the level of suspensions, I guess that is normal because it is still the first session, the track was quite dirty and sliding. We tried a couple of changes but have not given us the solution we expected. It has also worked in the electronics and gearbox. It is the first day, we started well but we have not given all the improvements we wanted. Tomorrow will improve security, because we already have a clear idea of where we want to address to improve the behavior of the suspensions. "
16 º Aleix Espargaró 2.00.720 (14 laps): "We started well, but there was not much grip the bike was behaving normally. Has gradually been increasing grip and we mounted the soft rear tire, we have appeared the same problems of landslides that we live in Jerez. The front of the bike also rebounded enough to open the throttle. This is the first session, we will perform further work to understand why. As for the engine, here we thought enough about penalizaríamos factory bikes and top speed has not happened, in powering itself. I think the differences with the front guys can be mitigated, we just keep working. "
