BRADL SATISIFIED WITH HIS 7TH SPOT ON JEREZ GP GRID

Jerez, 3 May: this morning session at sweltering Jerez de la Frontera circuit saw LCR Honda rider Stefan Bradl setting the 6th fastest time which secured him the “access” to the QP2 session as estimated yesterday by the German. Bradl was pleased with his remarkable progression on the Iberian track that has been always tough for him since his debut in the premier class. The 24-year-old posted the 7th lap time on soft tyres (1’39.243) and will start from the third row followed by Smith and Espargaro.

Stefan: “I have tried to do my maximum in the qualifying because the target was to be in second row and we missed it for 0.021s only. So we can be happy because we did a good job on a race track that has been always very tough for me on a MotoGP bike. We improved a lot compared to the last two years and we have the possibility to end the race in the top five. This would be good for me and the Team and for the ranking. Tomorrow’s common problem will be the tyre wear because of the hot temperatures but we have found a good pace on used tyres”.
