On a day when afternoon rain limited the level of lap time improvement, LCR Honda rider Casey Stoner was one of only a handful of riders able to find over a second around the Sepang race track.

The Australian rider was able to make such positive progress after changes to his chassis and suspension settings gave him more rear end grip and a confidence inspiring front end.

"We had a positive day, a great improvement and I was about one second faster than yesterday," confirmed class rookie Casey. "We have solved a few problems today. The rear end grip is much better than the last test here and the front ends steers into the corners better. In fact front and rear are better than the last test.

"We had a slight problem getting off the tight corners so we leaned off the power and that helped improve my feeling. I could have been a little faster if I had the best tyres on when we got the bike running really good," he claimed.
