LCR Honda's Bradl completes pleasing day's work

'I found the bike easier to ride and my fastest lap time came early in the morning and I was very pleased with that' - Stefan Bradl
LCR Honda's Stefan Bradl knocked 1.2 seconds off his best lap from the opening day of the Sepang MotoGP tests to cap a satisfying day's work in Malaysia.

Bradl, the current Moto2 world champion, completed 41 laps in total at Sepang in the sweltering heat on his 1000cc RC213V.

The LCR team focused on bike set-up and Bradl posted his fastest lap of 2m02.414s in the morning session to end the day in 11th position overall.

“Today has been a full day of work for me and the guys. We made some good steps forward in our 'to do' list including suspension regulations, chassis geometry adjustments and some electronics,” he said.

“I found the bike easier to ride and my fastest lap time came early in the morning and I was very pleased with that.”

Repsol Honda's Casey Stoner led the way (2m0.895s) followed by factory Yamaha duo Ben Spies and Jorge Lorenzo.

Over a seasons length 'Rookie of the year 2012'. Moto2 CH last year. Cold fact : Bradl kept his head and won it. Latino flair vs Germanic eficiency and all. It is a pity Marquez and his management decided to give GP a miss given the eye issues. Stefan Bradl I suspect is on the cusp of making some big noises inside the premier class paddock 2012.
