CANEPA IMPROVES IN THE SECOND DAY AT SEPANG

KALLIO NOT FULLY SATISFIED

Marco Rigamonti -- Niccolo Canepa Track Engineer
"In general the situation has improved compare to yesterday. We have found a type of tyres that Niccolo likes more and this gives him more trust. In addition we solved, even if not totally, the problem of top speed encountered yesterday. Tomorrow we will try to make the bike smoother coming out the corners to use even more power. Apart Stoner, until the last sector of the circuit we basically maintain the same level of all other Ducati riders. If tomorrow we will make it to recover that half of second we lose in the last intermediate we could be pretty satisfied."

Niccolo Canepa -- Pramac Racing MotoGP Rider
"In this second day of work things have gone a bit better for us. We have shortened the gears and we were able to result faster in top speed in the two final straights. We are still missing something and I hope that tomorrow we will find new solutions to be even faster. My feeing with the bike has also improved. Now, together with my track engineer, we are analyzing other riders' data to understand where I still make some mistakes. At the end of the day I also managed to stay behind Loris Capirossi for a few laps and I noticed that in a couple turns I take a different line. Tomorrow I will try to change to see if it will help me to reduce a bit more my lap times."

Mika Kallio -- Pramac Racing MotoGP Rider
"Today we have lost some time because we have meet the same problem encountered yesterday and this has in part limited our performances. We made it anyway to work on various technical aspects. Sincerely I expected more from today after the good start done yesterday. I hope the weather conditions will be the same also tomorrow so that we will be able to ride for as many laps as possible during the all day."
