Bradl takes fifth at Silverstone

Bradl takes fifth at Silverstone

The British Grand Prix got underway with a rain-hit first free practice session but the conditions improved for the second outing in the afternoon with Stefan Bradl occupying 5th place (2.05’391).

The German riding the satellite Honda, who experienced the British track for the first time on a MotoGP bike, went about his business with a consistent pace both in the wet and in the dry, but he knows there’s more to come from his machine ahead tomorrow’s qualifying.

"I feel quite satisfied about this first day of practices. It seems we are well prepared both in the dry and wet conditions. I was a bit worried in the afternoon session because our rear tyre dropped down too fast so we made some little adjustments to improve our lap time. So far we are not at 100%, yet with the set up but we know where to work and what we have to do because the lap times are still too slow compared to last year. But in general everything is working good for us: I have a little cold which is not helpful but hopefully I can control it during this weekend."
