FIRST DAY OF WORK WITH RAIN IN QATAR KALLIO THIRD, CANEPA FIFTH

Fabiano Sterlacchini -- Pramac Racing Technical Director

"This day of testing has been unluckily ruined by the rain, but the track condition were the same for everyone and we have done a good job. This gives us a lot of trust for the rest of this testing session. The track by the end of the day was almost dry but the grip wasn't the best. We hope that tomorrow it will be warm again and the track will get in the best condition possible."

Mika Kallio -- Pramac Racing Rider

"I don't want to be too enthusiastic about this third best lap time, but I can consider my self pretty satisfied for the work done today. I hope to find the track completely clean tomorrow to understand our true potential. I had really good sensation with the bike. The objective for the next two days it will be to try to remain in the top part of the classification."

Niccolo Canepa -- Pramac Racing Rider

"This was the first time for me on this track under this impressive floodlights system. It was beautiful, a pity that the rain has limited our work. I am anyway satisfied thanks to the good lap time registered. I need to ride for as many laps as possible and I hope that in the next two days we will find optimal weather condition. It has been a good start for me, surely better compare to the last test in Malaysia."
