Best qualifying yet for Bradl at the Dutch TT

Friday, 29 June 2012

LCR Honda MotoGP rider Stefan Bradl put in his best qualifying display in the premier class today at the Assen circuit taking fourth in only his seventh ever start.

After yesterday’s first outing, Bradl gained more confidence aboard his Honda, quickly adapting to the Dutch track.

The 60-minute qualifying session started in dry conditions with dark clouds overhead, resulting in some light downpours throughout the session. But the German easily coped with the tricky conditions on soft tyre, posting his fastest lap time of 1’34.035.

“Finally we put the things together and we had a very good qualifying, a very good lap time and a very good placement on the starting grid for tomorrow. I was not expecting this result because yesterday we were struggling a lot, but we remained concentrated. Basically we did not give up and the great result finally arrived and the team demonstrated strong character. We have found a good balance for the bike using a perfect strategy, and it was not easy because the weather was pretty unstable. This is our real potential and now I must learn to repeat this in the future.”
