Stefan Bradl felt a lack of grip was his problem after finishing the opening day's running at the French Grand Prix in eleventh place. The German struggled, particularly in the morning session when he was the slowest prototype rider, and although he improved his time by 1.3s in FP2, was still short of where he'd hoped to be.

Bradl admits he is looking for a better feeling at the front end of the LCR Honda RC213V but remains confident that he can make those improvements in time for qualifying.

“It was a tough first day for me because it's always difficult to arrive on a new circuit riding a new bike: actually I need one practice at least to get a base set up, the correct balance and a base ideal line. This morning was quite difficult for me considering the low grip conditions and I was struggling almost everywhere along the track. But in the afternoon we could really improve everywhere and I feel quite positive because we are closer to the P8. We can find something more in the overall package because we are not at 100% yet as I am struggling in the entry of the corners and I do not have enough front feeling”.
