They said the bike is beautifully put together. It's a prototype race bike, but not a prototype of the race bike. It really looks like the finished article, very neat, really tidy, and nice to work on.
I don't know what the lap time was from Motegi, as everyone's been very professional, but there were lots of smiley faces and the bike as a starting point doesn't look so bad.
With the technical know-how behind them can they hit the ground running when they get back into the series?
It's been two years out so they should be able to. But there is a big difference between testing and racing and obviously having a nice bike that works well is not impossible to achieve.
But obviously it's difficult to achieve and the target of running with Honda and Yamaha at the front of races is a big, big ask. It's never easy and it will continue not to be easy, but I really hope that the bike hits the sweet spot straight away and goes well.
