Bradl hopes to improve braking on Day 2

Like most in the MotoGP™ field, Stefan Bradl endured a frustrating day as pre-season testing continued at Sepang on Tuesday. The LCR Honda MotoGP rider was fourth overall, missing out on the top spot by just under four tenths of a second.

"The track was a bit slippery, so conditions were not as good as they had been for the last Sepang test," the German explained to motogp.com in a video interview. "It took some time to get up to speed for a proper lap time and then it still took me some time to build confidence when we fitted new tyres.

"By the end of our running we had found ourselves in a good position, so that was good. We still have some things to try in terms of geometry and lifting the bike and I also suffered a bit today with braking – it wasn’t as stable as at the last test."

Bradl, Moto2™ world champion of 2011, was the leading Honda satellite bike on Tuesday, finishing just 17 thousandths of a second slower than the second Repsol Honda Team factory machine of Marc Márquez.
