TRACK CONDITION IMPROVED IN QATAR FOR THE SECOND DAY OF TESTING CANEPA FIFTEENTH PRECEDE KALLIO

Marco Rigamonti -- Niccolo Canepa Track Engineer

"The final result doesn't show the way today's session went. In the last two hours the track condition were getting worst and Niccolo preferred to don't step on the circuit, especially after Pedrosa and Kallio's falls. Until that moment we were in the top ten. For this reason we remain trustful. Niccolo, on the contrary of the last Test in Malaysia is really al calm and this is really important. He makes it to improve every time he goes out of the pit-lane. He still needs more experience as he still doesn't know this track so well."

Niccolo Canepa -- Pramac Racing Rider

"Today's position in the standing doesn't worry me. I remain serene because I basically didn't step on track in the last two hours, when most of the riders made it to improve. After having seen Dani and Mika fell, together with my Team we preferred to end the day early to don't take any risk so that we would be able to use in the best way possible the last day of work here. I am working well, I understood where to improve and tomorrow I will give my best again."

Mika Kallio -- Pramac Racing Rider

"In the first hours we were working well, but then in the last part of the day things weren't going too well and I made a mistake in a left turn and I felt. I barely touched the front brake and I found my self on the ground. I suffered a hard hit but tomorrow I should be able to step on the circuit without any problem. I will try to make it up tomorrow."
