Bradl finds form to take fifth on the grid in Phillip Island

Saturday, 27 October 2012

The second day of track action at the Island circuit began under cloudy skies with cooler temperatures compared to yesterday’s springtime weather with LCR Honda MotoGP’s racer Stefan Bradl lining up in fifth place (1’30.798) ahead tomorrow’s 27-lap race.

The 22-year-old was down to eighth in this morning third free session but was back to his competitive form for the 60-minute qualifying session, which saw the German make his way into top-5.

“We are very happy today because we did not expect fifth place in qualifying after yesterday’s issues with the bike set up. I was struggling too much with bike confidence but we made some chassis adjustments finding a good solution for the afternoon session. After that I was finally back into my standard form lapping with more confidence and more average speed. Let’s see what is going on tomorrow but we are more prepared right now considering the particular layout of this track.”
