Day 2 – Full Thursday Test Times from Qatar. Vi̱ales on top

Posted:

The second day of MotoGP testing in Qatar was another step forward for Team Suzuki Ecstar‰Ûªs Maverick Vi̱ales, who topped the classification with a best-time of 1‰Ûª55.436 in his 28th out of 42 laps around the Losail circuit.

Vi̱ales continued the work on the set-up and the electronics, leaving the test of the new ‰Û÷up-and-down‰Ûª seamless gearbox until tomorrow, but today‰Ûªs time is already 0.444s faster than his best of yesterday and nearly two-tenths-of-a-second closer to his qualifying time of last year‰Ûªs debut race.

‰ÛÏThis was another positive day, not only for the fastest lap but also for the huge job we have done," Vi̱ales said, "The step-by-step approach is paying back and my lap-times are good also in terms of pace. Although we worked hard to prepare for the races, I scored the best time and this gives us very good hopes.

"I‰Ûªm still working to decide the chassis, we‰Ûªre still trying both the 2015 and 2016, because we still have issues to verify and room for improvement. The positive is that although my best lap came with the 2015 chassis, the lap times are very close between the old one and the new one, leaving us with many options.

"As I said, I focused to prepare for the race, so today there was not time to try the new seamless gearbox, as we want to check things within all our configurations. Tomorrow may be the right chance to test it, even though we have also planned a race simulation to verify our consistency on the long distance. For now I‰Ûªm positive, the leading position is a good feeling although I‰Ûªm aware there is still a lot to do," the Spaniard concluded.
