Laverty: “We worked to find a more balanced bike”

Laverty: “We worked to find a more balanced bike”

Aspar MotoGP Team’s Eugene Laverty left the Jerez test happy having solved the rear grip problem that had been troubling him.

Laverty completed 73 laps, despite a crash halfway through the day, as he attempted to find more of a balance with his bike’s setup.

Eugene Laverty:
"I'm surprised we completed 73 laps, because a crash at midday lost us some time. We've worked hard today, basically focusing on improving the rear setup. As I mentioned yesterday, for the race we found productive solutions but they were a little aggressive, and that harmed me in other areas. Today we worked to find a more balanced bike, and the findings have been fantastic. Finally, after an entire weekend here, we have discovered how to get more grip with the rear and how to find a balance for the bike. We have solved the problem that has plagued us at the first few races of the year, and now we know which way to go. The mechanics have also worked on traction control, which we still continue to develop, but we liked what we tested today."
