LCR Honda's Stefan Bradl crashed twice on the final day of the Qatar MotoGP test as the German rider finished fourth on the times.

Bradl's fastest lap of 1m 55.187s was 0.313s from the top time set by Aleix Espargaro on the Forward Yamaha M1.

Despite his two spills, Bradl was in a positive mood as the test reached a conclusion and feels he has found a solid base setting for the opening round of the MotoGP World Championship in Qatar later this month.

"Today was very tough for me and the team. Unfortunately I crashed twice [once during the race simulation] but overall we are not far from the top, so I can leave Qatar with a good base for the first race," he said.

"On used tyres we are strong and consistent but the issue with the new rear tyre is still there. We could not solve the problem completely but this seems to be a common problem for Honda riders.

"When we arrived here our target was not the fastest lap but the adjustment of the bike and I think we did a good job so far."
