Setting up for Sepang with Ducati

Setting up for Sepang with Ducati

Nicky Hayden’s Crew Chief Juan Martínez explains the approach to preparing the American rider’s Desmosedici GP10 for the Malaysian circuit.

Two long straights, two tight hairpins and intense track and ambient temperatures all contribute to high demands being placed on MotoGP bikes at the Sepang International Circuit, site of this weekend’s Shell Advance Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix.

In the attached motogp.com video Nicky Hayden’s Ducati Team Crew Chief, Juan Martínez, explains exactly how these issues are dealt with as he outlines the basic points of setting up the Desmosedici GP10 for this weekend’s race.

Bridgestone’s Tom Tremayne also gives an insight into how MotoGP’s official tyre supplier approaches the round. With hard and extra hard front compounds and medium and hard rear options on offer the emphasis is on durability and braking stability.
