Bradl: “We'll need to work hard to do well"

Bradl: “We'll need to work hard to do well'

Thanks to Stefan Bradl, Aprilia had both their bikes in the points for the first time since returning to the MotoGP™ World Championship.

A successful Grand Prix of the Czech Republic had both Stefan Bradl and Alvaro Bautista finish in the points on the Aprilia Racing Team Gresini machines, a first for the Italian brand since returning to the premier class. Bradl has adapted rapidly to the Aprilia machine, having only joined the team in Indianapolis. The 2015 season is all about gathering data for Aprilia and Brno produced good feedback on the new chassis as well as the overall performance of the RS-GP.

Silverstone is yet another new set of obstacles for Bradl and Aprilia to overcome, fast changes of direction have so far proved difficult for the Italian bike. Improving in Qualifying is a main aim for all involved in the project, starting further up the MotoGP™ grid has proved to be immensely beneficial in the 2015 season. Fortunately for Bradl, the one week break in action has also allowed his wrist to heal further and removing all lingering issues.

Stefan Bradl: “I can't wait to get back on the track. The result we achieved in Brno really motivated the entire team and I will also be able to start the weekend in better physical condition. I have had time to rest up and do some physical therapy, so I hope that in Silverstone I won't have to mention the problems with my right wrist any more. I like the layout of the track, although we'll need to work hard to do well with the many fast direction changes. Our priority for this round will once again be to improve our consistency in terms of performance over race distance.”
