Strong eighth position for Bradl

Saturday, 2 June 2012

LCR Honda MotoGP rider Stefan Bradl clocked the 8th fastest lap time (1’42.065) today in a physically demanding 60-minute qualifying session at Montmeló circuit in readiness for tomorrow’s 25-lap Catalan GP.

The German riding the RC213V was clearly enjoying the Catalunya circuit lapping with a fast and consistent pace since yesterday’s first run out. Together with his hard-working crew Bradl responded very well to the fast traits of the 4.727km racetrack, tweaking the set up of his Honda machine.

"Well... this is not bad for us and we are in a good shape. Finishing in eight position considering the hot track conditions is quite positive but I was expecting something more: maybe the sixth or the seventh placement. During the session we could handle that position easily but at the end everybody went out on soft tyres pushing at 100%. I am happy with the bike package and our race pace is good so I am really optimistic ahead tomorrow’s race. We will try to follow the top guys for a while and we will see considering the tough conditions: everything is possible."
