Aleix Espargaro: 'We are satisfied with the results'

Suzuki MotoGP’s Aleix Espargaro concluded the third and final day of Sepang 2 in Malaysia satisfied with the progress made on his GSX-RR.

Espargaro completed 50 laps on the final day of the Sepang test, with a best time of 2:00.275, good enough for ninth position on the day, and 10th overall.

Aleix Espargaro:

“We are satisfied with today’s results, we ran a lot in hot conditions because yesterday we had some issues with those conditions with more than 50 laps. Today we ran a lot with 60° closing laps in 2.01. I’m very, very happy with the improvements on the pace. I’m missing the fast lap because with the two soft tyres I made a couple of mistakes.

“The bike is very improved, we worked a lot on electronic set-up and to find a better configuration of the traction control, which gave good results and let us cut one second off our time. We also worked on traction out of corners and it was important to verify the bike’s behaviour in hot conditions because they are similar to race conditions. We still have a lot of work to do but I’m confident and aware that I’m in a Factory team with a lot of people working hard to do the best job.”
