A total of 58 laps and good laptime of 2.01’208 from Bautista already improved on his performance from the last test in Malaysia a few weeks ago.

He continued his setup work for the Showa suspension and the search for a better geometry of the frame.

Alvaro Bautista “I am happy to have made a good step forward. The improvements are noticable and now we have a strong base to complete the great work we’re doing during tomorrow’s session.

We find some good technical solutions and we have a good race pace and our laptime has improved significantly.”

Fausto Gresini “It’s been a good day. We made ​​significant technical progress with Alvaro and Bryan and we have everything clear for the final day to finish the job tomorrow. We have collected a lot of data and Showa is doing a great job. Overall, this second test at the moment is very positive and I am confident that we will make further progress.”
