Bradl fastest Open rider as action resumes

Bradl fastest Open rider as action resumes

The first day of 2015 MotoGP™ testing ended positively for Team Forward Racing as Stefan Bradl was the top Open rider on the timesheet.

The German rider continued his work to adapt to the Forward Yamaha bike completing 58 laps with a best time of 2’01.556, which earned him the eighth place overall, just a second short of leader Marc Marquez. 

It was a productive day also for his teammate Loris Baz, who completed 66 laps, stopping the clock at 2’04.163.

Bradl enthused, "It has been a very positive first day. The lap time is good and finding yourself at the end of the session in the top 10 is definitely a good start. The feeling is also pretty good although I have yet to learn to take the right confidence with the Magneti Marelli software. I have in front of me two more days of work and I'm sure I can find a good setting to be immediately fast in the first race." 

Baz added, "The feeling at the end of this first day is positive. I completed 66 laps and my work continues in a positive direction. I still need to find the right confidence and position on the bike but we are growing up quickly. We still have two days of work to find the right feeling."
