Buoyant Bradl Making Gains With 2013 Honda

1 Mins read

Stefan Bradl feels LCR Honda will leave Malaysia in good shape after the second pre-season test at Sepang concluded this afternoon. The German was seventh fastest overall with three quarters of a second separating him from Dani Pedrosa and Bradl admits there is still some time to find in his RC213V. Bradl is running on a ‘factory supported’ machine this season and admits he is still exploring its limits.

For the majority of teams, just three days of running at Jerez remain before the curtain-raiser in Qatar but Bradl will join HRC and Yamaha at the Circuit of the Americas for a private three day test starting on March 12th. Bradl hopes to use the extra running to build on the platform he has been able to build in the opening two tests in Kuala Lumpur.

“It has been another productive test for us! We still have to improve few tenths of a second but we did anyway good progress with the new bike. We found some interesting front suspension settings, which allowed us to increase the front tyre feeling and some new traction control map gaining a bit more drive in the corner exits. I am looking forward to discover the new circuit in Texas and continue our bike development!”
