Stefan Bradl introduced himself to MotoGP in superb style with eighth place in the season-opening Qatar Grand Prix. The LCR Honda made a fantastic start from the third row and ran in sixth place for much of the race before eventually dropping back to eighth.

The German revealed that a change to his braking settings led to his drop down the order but he couldn't be too disappointed with the result.

“I am very happy and we are doing a good job as all the week end was very positive for us. My start was perfect but maybe I was a little bit too careful in the first laps but I really could see this is a different category compared to Moto2 and the guys are more clever with the new tyres. I was able to follow the fastest guys, not for the whole race, but I was capable to do my own race quite well.”

“At the end I went in the wrong direction with the brake lever adjuster and this cost us half a second and this is the reason why Hayden, Barbera and Bautista caught me. They are also more experienced than me on used tyres at the end of the race but overall this is an exciting week end for us. I was also expecting to be more exhausted after 22 laps but I am ok”.
