Tomorrow the team will continue the work on the Open electronics to gather as much information as possible for Ducati to help them decide what to do for the upcoming championship.
Andrea Iannone - PramacRacing - was unlucky as the first half of the day was unfruitful because of a minor technical problem and a crash, which was luckily without consequences for "Maniac Joe". Work could restart only in the afternoon. Today for Andrea was the first time with the Open class software. Tomorrow the team will continue the work on the Open electronics to gather as much information as possible for Ducati to help them decide what to do for the upcoming championship.
Yonny Hernandez - Energy T.I. Pramac Racing - demonstrated right away that the work on his GP13 Open was going in the right direction. In the first part of the test session Yonny rode about one second faster than Sepang 1, laying down a time of 2'01"685, his best lap ever on the Sepang circuit.
"Today has been a hard day, even though we improved compared to yesterday. We found some solutions to some problems I had. Now we have to concentrate on tomorrow and understand what to do on the bike. My team and I have some ideas on what to do to improve, but let's wait to get a better idea. I thank my team, Ducati and all the guys that support me."
"I'm really happy with the work done today, we improved the bike a lot. I think now I can make another step forward, because my lap times are better. I was able to finish a lap in 2'01''6 and the rhythm is much better than yesterday. I solved a lot of problems with the electronics, and I get more and more feeling each lap. I think tomorrow I will improve a little. I want to thank the Team for the work done. Today we made a step forward!"
