Stefan Bradl sixth fastest at conclusion of Sepang test

'There's more work to do before the first race of the season but we leave Sepang with a good base' - Stefan Bradl
Stefan Bradl leaves Sepang with a 'good base' on which to build upon as the LCR Honda team continues preparations for the opening round of the MotoGP World Championship in Qatar in April.

Bradl, who has been confirmed as riding a factory-spec RC213V this season, was sixth fastest in the final day of the Sepang test, 0.6s slower than the top time set by Dani Pedrosa.

The German rider improved his time from day one of the test on Tuesday by half a second and is content with his progress as he looks towards the next test in late February back in Malaysia.

“The result of these three days of work is quite good for me. I think we have completed our job gathering more data ahead the next test here,” said Bradl, who quickest lap was 2m 01.003s.

“Even today I was working on a raft of things from traction control, to suspension and brakes and Bridgestone gave us a new rear hard tyre to test.

“At the end I run the circuit 43 times, growing my confidence on this bike.

“There's more work to do before the first race of the season but we leave Sepang with a good base”.

@ TheBiscuit It's the same bike, but inter-season updates will go to the works guys first. I agree with the second post of this thread. Wins and podiums for Bradl? Ehhh, that's a stretch......a stretch that I wouldn't bet on. The kitchen is on fire with the top 4 chefs whipping up meals! The only way that the culinary students (aka..the rest of the grid) will make it into the kitchen is if a chef gets sick. P.S. I'm a Bradl fan! I want him to do well.
