Gresini Honda riders comment on new adventure

Gresini Honda riders Marco Melandri and Toni Elias furthered their adaptation to both the 800cc bikes and their new Bridgestone tyres at this week's Sepang Test. The youthful duo tried out a number of compounds at the Malaysian circuit to find the best combination possible.

Elias explained to motogp.com that the Honda-Bridgestone combination was "a new adventure" for Fausto Gresini's team. "Now we are trying a few things out, we are still in the first phase of the process and we need time, but even though the current results maybe don't show it, the work is going pretty well," said the Spaniard.

Melandri noted the difference in speed between the 880cc bikes and the previous models, stating that "at circuits like Sepang we are losing 20kph compared with the 990cc, but in general things are going good, even though we are a little bit behind."
