POSITIVE DAY OF TESTING FOR DUCATI MARLBORO TEAM AT JEREZ

The Ducati Marlboro Team were back on track in breezy but pretty warm conditions at Jerez today for the first of two post-race test days planned for this season. Casey Stoner and Nicky Hayden took the opportunity to try a variety of different set-up options, clocking the sixth and seventh fastest times respectively.

Casey Stoner (Ducati Marlboro Team) 6th fastest 1:39.786 (66 laps)

"Today was quite productive because we found a race set-up for this track that was better than yesterday, with improved front feeling which is what we had been looking for all weekend. We went for quite a radical change and it did the trick but we'll have to wait and see if it works at other circuits because this place tends to put more pressure on front tyres than a lot of places and it requires a particular approach. Anyway, we go to Le Mans with a lot of useful data and hopefully it can help us there too."

Nicky Hayden (Ducati Marlboro Team) 7th fastest 1:39.906 (70 laps)

"It has been a useful day even though we haven't found anything spectacular. That's to be expected because we have taken huge steps forward to get to this point and it's always going to be more tricky to find those last couple of tenths. We changed some things with the geometry, suspension settings and a few general areas that we hadn't had time to try over the weekend. We got a lot of data which will be useful because we don't have another chance to test until after Brno."
