A 1:55.394 lap from Movistar Yamaha MotoGP rider Jorge Lorenzo was the fastest lap of the one day official test after the Czech GP by three tenths, with track action delayed in the morning as the track was cleaned. The Movistar Yamaha team tested some new front tyres from Michelin in development for 2017, a new chassis and swingarm, and made the most of the afternoon session to make some positive improvements ahead of the upcoming British GP at Silverstone.
Electronics supplier Magneti Marelli also brought some adjustments and updates to the test, with the Yamaha duo of Lorenzo and Rossi proving one team eager to test the changes.
Jorge Lorenzo (P1 - 1:55.394): “We had more or less similar things to try and some of them gave us a benefit to go faster. It has been a positive journey because we were afraid we wouldn‘t be able to test today because some corners were dirty in the beginning, but finally the bikes on track improved the grip, it was not the same as during the weekend but we were able to test many things. We tried both new Michelin tyres and they were better than the standard one, better stability and they have better grip in the corners.”
