Jack Miller Hampered By Wet Weather At Opening Day Of Sepang Test

Posted:

Afternoon rain-showers hampered proceedings for Australia's Jack Miller and his CWM LCR Honda Team on the first day of testing back at the Sepang International Circuit.

The conditions at the track had been some of the hottest of the year so far as the team returned to Malaysia for the second test of 2015, but just after 4pm the dark clouds began to gather and huge claps of thunder signalled the start of some heavy downpours.

In his third test at the track since he joined the CWM LCR Honda team, Jack Miller had spent the day making steady progress on board his Open spec Honda RC213V-RS. Unfortunately, just as the Aussie returned to the track for the afternoon, once the hottest part of the day had subsided, he was caught out by the arrival of the rain.

Whilst many of the other riders stayed dry in their garages however, Miller took the opportunity to ride his new bike in the wet for the first time, and was happy with the experience.

"Today I was not so happy because we didn't get in as many dry laps as we would have liked." Miller commented. "We decided to make some big changes on the bike, and I was happy with them, but I only got chance to go out once on track before the rain fell.

"It was good to get a bit of a test in the rain though, but I really hope for some good weather tomorrow and that the track can be a bit cleaner too."

The Queenslander and his CWM LCR Honda team will be hoping to improve on today's best lap of 2'03.006 when they return to the track tomorrow for the second of four days work.
