Another top ten finish for rookie Stefan Bradl {{1322261|left|s3}

LCR Honda MotoGP rider Stefan Bradl took another positive 9th place in today’s 28-lap Grand Prix of Portugal at Estoril, now lying 7th in the world championship classification with 24 points after three rounds only.

The complex, bumpy and narrow Estoril circuit is always a special challenge, especially for MotoGP rookies like Bradl, but the German, riding the Honda RC213V, did a professional job on his first weekend here on a MotoGP bike.

Bradl- 9th

“My start was ok and I could make some good manoeuvres in the beginning but then I was a bit on the limit and in the middle of the race I was losing too much in the corners entries which was our problem all the time during this weekend. Especially in the fast corners I needed to wait in opening the throttle and this cost us a lot of time. We have never had this problem before and Spies had a better pace than us during the race but I can say this is another good weekend for me and the Team.”
