The second day of action at Jerez got underway at 2.00 p.m. due to the track conditions following yesterday’s rainfall. It was a positive start for the team with Andrea immediately setting a good time to move into 5th place in the timesheets.
Late in the afternoon a brief rain shower came down and all the MotoGP riders came back into the pits. Tomorrow sees the last day of testing to finalize the set-up before the season gets underway.
Andrea Iannone - Energy T.I. Pramac Racing Team: "It was a positive day despite the crash that forced me to stop. I was able to have a good feeling with the bike and get some good impressions.
I'm sorry for the fall but I was trying to improve my pace and unfortunately these things can happen. I am very positive and I hope to be fast as soon as possible. "
Ben Spies - Ignite Pramac Racing Team: “We didn’t have a great day, but now we know a little more about the bike and we improved quite a bit even with my shoulder problem.
I am happy because it feels better and better. We know we are a bit slower than where we wanted to be, but I had some good laps, we worked hard and we have got some changes to do tomorrow to get more confidence with the bike.”
