Bradl concludes test ninth fastest

Friday, 2 March 2012

Sepang, 1st March: the third and final day of testing at Sepang was held in hot and dry conditions with all riders out on track upon opening, including all four Hondas, with Stoner rising to the top of the classification on 2’00.473.

The premier class riders put their new bikes through their paces at the 5.548km track, and in his third MotoGP™ test on the LCR Honda RC213V, Moto2 World Champion Stefan Bradl concluded with the ninth fastest time.

The young German, who had a "day off" yesterday together with his Honda colleagues, put in 54 laps with a best time of 2’01.492 in preparation for the forthcoming season. Bradl and his squad will be back on track in Spain (Jerez) for the last pre-season testing session on the 23rd, 24th and 25th of March.

Stefan Bradl:
"Yesterday we sat out the second day of testing, so today was a tough day for me and the guys. After 54 laps I feel a bit tired as the temperature was very high but I am leaving Malaysia with a good feeling and a good base set up for the future. Together with the HRC engineers support we tested some engine mapping to improve my riding style and the power delivery. I am pretty satisfied with my lap time and the gap to the front is acceptable. If we continue with this kind of progress I am sure that positive results will arrive soon."
