After topping the timesheets on the first day of the premier class' MotoGP Official Test, Marco Melandri declared to motogp.com that he was always confident of a good showing at the Spanish Circuit.

"I new Bridgestone would be fast here at Jerez," explained the Gresini Honda rider. "Things just keep getting better in preseason, which is a good thing for us."

The Italian also reiterated his statement made in Qatar last week, again asking for more power for the Honda satellite team's bike. "We are still missing a bit of horsepower, but I am hoping that the parts used by the factory riders will be given to us soon as well."
