BRADL OPTIMISTIC AT THE END OF DAY ONE IN AUSTIN

Austin, 11 April: on the opening day of the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas in Texas, LCR Honda racer Stefan Bradl posted the 7th fastest lap time (2’04.870) showing his appreciation for the 5.513Km US circuit where he finished the race in 5th last year. The German progressively improved the set-up of his RCV throughout the sunny first day of practice and aims to improve more for the qualifying.

Stefan: “On the paper we are 7th but overall we are a bit better because we improved the bike a lot from the morning to the afternoon. On my fastest lap I made few small mistakes and found some traffic but it’s not so important right now. Through the adjustments we made from one session to the other we gained some handling and front feeling. In the afternoon we mainly checked the tyres for Sunday’s race lapping on both rubbers and we will probably go for hard front and rear to be ready for the race. Now we remain calm and we will try to attack tomorrow to challenge the Ducati and the Open class bikes”.
