Bagnaia: “These new tyres give you more grip with the rear”

Bagnaia: “These new tyres give you more grip with the rear”

Mapfre Team Mahindra’s Pecco Bagnaia completed 76 laps at the official Moto3™ test in Jerez as he assessed two new tyres from Dunlop.

The MAPFRE Team Mahindra rider completed 76 laps, in which he carried out a multitude of tests. Various configurations for the suspension and seat were tried out, plus work with new tyres brought by Dunlop to the test. Exhausted at the end of the day, the Italian was pleased with his findings and confident that he will be able to take advantage of them at the next race.

Pecco Bagnaia:
"Today we completed many laps, and we practically didn’t stop riding all day. With so much time on track, we were able to try different configurations and solutions for our bike. We also tested some electronic mapping which proved positive. Finally, we tested some new tyres that Dunlop have given us and which we will also use at Le Mans. These new tyres give you more grip with the rear, however it seems that the feeling with the front is lower. Overall, I am satisfied with the pace and with today's times. Now that we have drawn many conclusions from this test, we will go to Le Mans with greater confidence."
