Two light crashes as Baz searches for wet limit

Two light crashes as Baz searches for wet limit

The second day of MotoGP™ testing in Valencia was made trickier by the rain on Tuesday at the Spanish track but Loris Baz was one of several riders adapting to new machinery this week who took the opportunity to try his bike in the wet.

The Frenchman completed 32 laps, setting a best time of 1’46.143 and finishing in ninth position. Two small crashes in the afternoon, without consequences for the rider, did not stop Baz from enjoying his second day on the Forward-Yamaha MotoGP bike.

The Frenchman said, “The first impression in the wet is good. I wanted to know how the tyres work on the wet so I took advantage of the rain to test. I still need to gain more confidence also with the brakes but tomorrow we will continue to work. Despite the two crashes, I’m satisfied.”

“I’m ok and it was just a mistake in shifting down. It’s just a silly mistake. I’m still not 100% comfortable with my position on the bike so maybe it came from that. Anyway, I’m feeling good. I was just doing laps today to understand the bike and the tyres.”
