LCR Honda’s sole rider Tony Elias took to the track for the 2nd day of the 2nd test in Malaysia today, and failed to duplicate the same results as yesterday.

The Moto2 champion had to contend with sweltering temperatures that continued to get hotter throughout the day, and settled for working on chassis and suspension setup, instead of chasing a fast lap time.

“We had another productive day though it was very hard to ride in these tropical conditions.” said Elias.

“From yesterday I felt more comfortable with the bike like I understood the bike a little better but as I said before we still have a lot of work to do. We managed to work on set-up even today finding strong points and weak points.  Actually our base set up give us the chance to make a low 2’02 but today we focused on different adjustments rather than chasing a fast lap time” he continued.
