Kenny Roberts Jr returns to MotoGP races

Team Roberts used Monday´s test to evaluate several chassis and suspension options they had hoped to try in practice and qualifying for the GP. Poor weather on the opening day of practice and a crash on oil during final qualifying prevented them making any progress.

Kenny Roberts Jr gave the KR211V an impressive GP debut, finishing eighth in Sunday´s race, and goes to round two of the series in better shape on the back of a successful day´s work on Monday.

`We used the test to try some of the stuff we brought for the GP but didn´t get the chance to test´, said Roberts, who last Sunday made his appearance in the MotoGP series for first time since the GP of Australia free practices, when he injured himself riding the Suzuki GSV-R.

`We were not looking at lap times today, just working on the overall balance of the bike trying a few suspension options with a lot of work on the front forks. Michelin gave us a really good front tyre and we had a lot more feedback from the front and got rid of the sliding we experienced during the race. We are ready for Qatar and really looking forward to qualifying with the stuff we have now´.
