Elias draws comparison between 800cc and 250cc

With just 14 laps undertaken with the Honda RC212V yesterday, Toni Elias was eager to hit the track today to gain more experience with the 800cc bike. The Spaniard was able to add a further 60 laps to his total in a productive session, concentrating mainly on his new Bridgestone tyres.

"Today we have really made the most of the day, getting to know the bike a lot better," commented Elias. "At the moment we haven't made any modifications to fine tune things, because it is best to keep the bike in a raw state in order to learn best how to ride it."

"We have worked hard with the Bridgestone technicians, and I'm happy with what they've given us. It's still early days for evaluation, but as a base everything seems to be very good. The riding style required is similar to 250cc, it's an agile and speedy bike on the corners. I'm comfortable with it, and I'm getting pretty impatient about getting back on the track tomorrow for my last day testing in Sepang!"
