The second day of winter testing at Sepang has concluded, after that the MotoGP riders donated, at the beginning of the day, in support to the Malaysian population recently hit by floods. After this for Ducati Pramac Racing riders, Loris Capirossi and Randy De Puniet was time to step on track. 39 laps for the Italian, who ended the session at 15th place, with 20 thousands of a second later than teammate De Puniet (for him the laps were 35), with the 14th fastest lap time in 2.02.604.

Randy De Puniet - Pramac Racing Team - 14th fastest lap time in 2'02.604

"It did not go as I expected. I still find a bit of trouble when breaking and also when entering the corners. Every time I try to push harder the lap time goes up. Tomorrow we will use the basic set up of yesterday, because today was not convincing. The goal, for tomorrow is to improve the lap time and find the right set-up for the start of the season."

Loris Capirossi - Pramac Racing Team - 15th fastest lap time in 2'02.624

"Today we focused on the development of certain technical details, and tomorrow we will try to lower our lap time. We studied different solutions trying to figure out the areas for improvement. I am confident and I think the last day of test tomorrow we can do something good to lower our best lap time as up to today we did not use soft tyres."
