Olivier Jacque talks to motogp.com from Qatar

Oliver Jacque is one of the many riders taking part in this week´s Qatar Test, undertaking his first session of 2006 as a test rider for Kawasaki Racing.

In an exclusive interview with motogp.com, Jacque revealed that one of the priorities for the test was work with the Bridgestone tyres, which the Kawasaki riders had problems with at last year´s Qatar Grand Prix. The Frenchman is riding the newest version of the 990cc Ninja ZX-RR at the Losail Circuit.

"The tests are going well. We´ve had good conditions for it. There´s not much heat but the track is warm enough" explained Jacque.

Official riders Shinya Nakano and Randy de Puniet are taking a few days off inbetween the recent Phillip Island Test and next week´s sessions in Malaysia.
