<strong>THE PRAMAC-DANTIN TEAM IS CONFIDENT TO HAVE A GOOD RACE IN MALAYSIA.</strong>
The second day of practices at the circuit of Sepang has finished with the absence of rain in both day's sessions a pleasant surprise. For the Pramac-Dantin Team, it wasn't a very fruitful day, as Alex Barros only managed 12th position, while team mate Chaz Davies lifted himself into 17th spot on the grid.
Tomorrow's race will begin at 3:00PM (local time), an hour later than usual.
<strong>Alex Barros (18 laps. 2´03,02).</strong> “Even though we made some improvements in the afternoon, in the end I wasn't able to get a good position. Today we noticed that the heat was more intense, which worked better for the front tire and my style of riding. However, the rear tire would work different depending on the part of the circuit, having good grip in some places, not much in others, and causing me to waste valuable time. The race tomorrow will be more difficult that the one in Australia, but I hope to have a good start and battle for the front positions”.
<strong>Chaz Davies (19 laps. 2´04,19).</strong> ”Today I started with a different set-up than yesterday, and while we made up some places, it wasn't sufficient. It's difficult to find the right balance point, because I don't have enough confidence in the front and it's costing me important tenths. At the end, I lowered my time with the Qualification tire, but I only improved upon myself and didn't advance. Tomorrow during the warm-up I'll test some changes we've made to the bike and hopefully that will let me have a good race”.
