Bradl targets front row start after opening day at Brno

Friday, 24 August 2012

After a little time to rest this week, LCR Honda MotoGP’s Stefan Bradl moved from Indy to Europe to contest the Czech track setting the 5th fastest lap time of the opening day (1’57.250).

The German considers Brno one of his favourite circuits having collected his first victory in 125cc and the third place in last year’s Moto2 race so his first outing riding the RCV looked very promising as Bradl even set the fastest time in the first sector of the 5.403km track.

"The first free session this morning was a bit strange but I knew we had a better potential and finally we made a good practice in the afternoon. I am happy about the 5th position but there’s something to adjust in the overall package especially in the front because it seemed that we overheat the tyre at the end of the session causing some movements. That issue stopped me a bit in recording a good average lap time but at the end the pace was quite consistent. I am in good form and very motivated but we must improve the bike even in the rear because we are not at 100% right now."
