Stefan Bradl was thankful for an extra day's running after going ninth fastest in the official mid-season test at Aragon. The LCR Honda rider has impressed in his rookie MotoGP campaign and lies eighth in the championship but admits he is still learning in the premier class five races in.

The German completed 72 laps of the Motorland Aragon circuit on Wednesday, over three race-distances worth of mileage, and believes he has found areas which he can build on which will help him when MotoGP resumes at Silverstone next weekend.

“Well… we have done a lot of work today: at the end I lapped the circuit 72 times and I feel a bit tired now. We found some good improvements ahead next races but when you work on different adjustments you lose track time… that's why my lap time is not excellent. We have changed suspensions, swing arm, front fork and other things. We were expecting a different feeling with the tyres on this asphalt but with today's hot temperature they worked differently. I am pretty sure it was an hard-working day for everybody but I am a rookie and it's essential for me to ride this bike as much as possible”.
