Bradl 8th fastest at sunlit Montmeló circuit

Bradl 8th fastest at sunlit Montmeló circuit

Tropical temperatures welcomed the premier class riders at the opening day of the Catalan round at Montmeló surface with Stefan Bradl continuing his progression on the LCR Honda RC213V.

The German rider, who recorded his best result in fifth last time out, is looking to not get carried away this weekend but he is aware that every circuit is a new discover aboard his MotoGP machine. Despite the above, Bradl quickly adapted to the physically demanding conditions today recording the 8th fastest lap time overall.

Bradl

"It was another good day for us. We have worked a lot in both session on used tyres and it was not easy considering the hot track temperatures. We are in a good shape and we are working for the race.. I mean... eight position in free two is not so bad and in some sections we are on the top but we need to put the things together. We are missing a bit of confidence in the front with hot temperatures but in general everything is working quite well. There’s a quite big difference from the morning temperature to the afternoon’s one so the qualifying session will be tough but extremely important."
