Parmac Riders Relish Wet Valencia Test

Posted:

The second day of the official test in Valencia has been characterized by an heavy rain with the Pramac Racing Team using the wet weather to gain some important information on the setting of the bikes in wet condition.

Yonny Hernandez, on his first outing with Ducati Gp 14.2, was the first rider to go out on the track and managed to do 19 laps finishing with a time of (1'44,432), setting the second top speed (313,4 km/h).

"Due to the weather conditions it has been very difficult to feel the difference between the Gp 14.0 and the Gp 14.2, even if this is clearly a different bike." Hernandez admitted. "It was important to get information for the wet but it's clear that i hope to ride the bike tomorrow in the dry.

"Anyway the first impression on Gp 14.2 was very good even in the rain and it has been confirmed by the quite good time I made.

Danilo Petrucci felt early comfortable under the rain with his Ducati Gp 14 completing 23 laps with the fastest time (1'42.431) of the day. Petrucci set also the highest speed with 314.1 km/h. One lap before getting back to the pit box, the Italian rider crashed without any particular damage to the bike.

"It was a useful day to get used to the bike in wet conditions." Petrucci commented. "It was very cold and the asphalt has never exceeded 13 degrees.

"It was not easy but I felt good as the wet conditions are not a problem for me. I'm sorry for the crash but fortunately there were no significant damage to the bike. I'm happy for the fastest time and especially for the first two days of test with Pramac Racing. I feel very comfortable with my new Team."
