Bradl looking for improvements in Indianapolis

Friday, 17 August 2012

The second half of the 2012 MotoGP World Championship kicked off today at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway with the MotoGP™ contingent back in action for the first day of practices which saw Stefan Bradl setting the 7th fastest lap time (1’41.255).

The majority of riders initially headed out on track tentatively as a few damp patches from earlier rain were still visible in this morning first session, but the track conditions improved for the 60-minute afternoon session with LCR Honda MotoGP’s German rookie taking to the Indianapolis track for the first time on his Red Bull branded Honda.

"We all knew that it would have not been so easy today because the infield was very dirty and the tarmac did not provide very good grip condition. So at this point it was not easy to work on the bike finding the proper set up especially when you have to struggle with the tyres. This situation made my first outing here even more difficult but in general we are not far from the top group and from our standard pace. Actually we must improve the rear feeling entering the corners and I think we will be capable to improve our pace for tomorrow’s qualifying."
