Chattering hinders Bradl on Sepang day one

In the opening day of the Malaysian GP, riders were met with the typically hot and humid conditions at the track, with grip levels characteristically low in the first morning practice, prompting most riders to head out on the softer option tyres including LCR Honda’s Stefan Bradl.

The German rookie made a solid start to the weekend in seventh and was looking to improve his machinery overall package but the afternoon session was marred by mixed weather conditions and the 22-year-old could not replicate this morning performance.

“This morning first outing was very difficult because the surface was very dirty and the grip very low. We struggled with some chattering problems, which we wanted to adjust in the afternoon, but unfortunately the weather was unstable with patches of heavy rain in some parts of the track and we could not proceed our job. Let’s see what’s going on with the weather tomorrow because we have a lot of things to test”.
