Unfruitful day one for Bradl in Valencia

Friday, 9 November 2012

The 2012 MotoGP World Championship concludes this weekend with the traditional season finale in Valencia at Ricardo Tormo circuit with poor rain and cloudy skies marking the first day of track action for LCR Honda MotoGP’s Stefan Bradl and his premier class colleagues.

On this morning’s rain-hit track the German riding the RC213V set the 11th lap time chasing the best adjustments of his Honda machinery but awkward track conditions affected the second practice with the majority of the riders sitting out the 45-minute session including Bradl.

“Actually it was not a very productive day for us because in this morning first outing the surface was wet and very slippery because of the new tarmac and it took me a while to get the right confidence on the bike. After some laps I was capable to ride as I normally do finding a good speed and a good rhythm. Unfortunately this afternoon the track conditions were pretty bad and I preferred to sit out the whole session but I am not worried about the situation because I know that our potential is higher than our actual position.”
