Bradl seventh on first day at Phillip Island

Bradl seventh on first day at Phillip Island

LCR Honda MotoGP’s Stefan Bradl and his colleagues were greet by sunny skies at Phillip Island today with the German posting the 7th quickest lap time of the day (1’31.702).

Bradl has successful records at the ocean track and made the most of his Honda machine today but was not satisfied about his performance, missing some confidence in the fast turns.

“It was a quite tough day for us and was expecting a better feeling on this race track. Basically I have not enough confidence although we tried different adjustments especially in the fast corners. In the corners exit I am struggling to keep the bike in balance and it’s tough to avoid the rear pumping; the surface is very bumpy here and it makes the problem even worse. In these conditions I can not be faster as I would like and we must analyse the data finding a quick solution for a better set up which will give me the chance to lap faster than this.”
