Comments

Somkiat Chantra (20th, 1m 59.734s)

“Today was also better than yesterday, and I am very happy. The bike's setting helped me so I have to say thanks to my team for the effort. We increased the engine brake and it was good for setting a good lap time. I feel better on the bike and understand the track better, so I cannot wait for the first race.”

Dimas Ekky Pratama (32nd, 2m 01.824s)

“We finish the test and even I improve my lap time every day, my time was not good. I know it's not easy but next week I will give my 100 percent to be more close to top riders.  Also team help me with set up on the bike that give me some confident and now I affront the next weekend with a positive thinking.”

Hiroshi Aoyama  | Team Manager

“Finally we complete three days of testing with Moto2. Chantra make another step going below 2' that was a very good lap time even his crash but he is not injured. This is important. About Dimas, he is on the correct way, but he still need to understand circuit so we give many laps to give this chance. All team make a good job that is good, but still we have to analyze all information and be ready for the race.”
