#MotoGP – Jorge Lorenzo the fastest man on MotoGp Sepang Test day 1

Posted on January 31st, 2012 at 5:39 pm

Jorge Lorenzo – 1º – 2.01.657 (30 laps):
“I’m very happy with today. For the first ride on the bike in some time, it’s been very positive. Yamaha has worked very hard over the winter on the M1. I can see very easily where I have to adapt my riding style for the bike and I can see a lot of potential. We have many areas where we can improve so I’m looking forward to beginning again tomorrow. I’m also very happy that my finger is fine and doesn’t affect my riding at all!”

 


Daniel Pedrosa – 2º – 2.02.003 (48 laps):
“Of course, the first day I was a little bit stiff, not totally smooth on the bike, but we completed some laps and they were good. Today was mainly a test for myself, to get used to the bike again, recover the feeling, feel the throttle and the brakes after a long time off.  The whole day I stayed with the same bike that I tested in Valencia in November and tomorrow the real test will start for us, we will work on the set up and probably try a modified chassis that Honda has brought here according to our requests after Valencia.”

 

 

Valentino Rossi – 5º – 2.02.392 (43 laps):
“We are already ‘half way’ compared with last year. The distance is 0.7s compared with Lorenzo, who did a very good lap,” began Rossi, speaking outside the Ducati Team pit garage on Tuesday evening. I am so happy especially because we fixed a lot of problems that in all of the 2011 season we were not able to improve. Braking, corner entry, agility – the bike is a lot better. Ducati have done a great job in a short time.”
