Bradl ends 11th in first outing with LCR

Bradl ends 11th in first outing with LCR

The final day of putting the new 1000cc prototypes through their paces at the 5.548km Sepang International Circuit concluded today with MotoGP™ rookie Stefan Bradl setting a lap of 2’01.894 to place eleventh in the field.

LCR Honda rider Stefan Bradl set out a clear programme for the final day of the three day test, continuing to gather his confidence aboard the RC231V. The LCR squad and the 22-year-old put in 38 laps on the Honda machinery, as the German rider came to grips with a MotoGP bike.

The team will be back at work at the end of the month for another 3-day testing session on the Malaysian surface in preparation for the forthcoming season.

Stefan Bradl:
"Considering the test was three days long, overall I feel quite satisfied about my first performance aboard this new bike. Everyday we made some little adjustments to help my riding style and I feel more comfortable now. We gathered important data for next test session here at the end of the month and I am sure there's still more to come. There's a lot of work to do but in general I had a positive first experience. Of course I want to thank Lucio, the guys and HRC technicians for their support during these three days."
