KALLIO AND ESPARGARO' DISAPPOINTED AFTER SEPANG TEST
Not the best day for the Pramac Racing Team that with its riders, Mika Kallio and Aleix Espargarò, don't make it to improve yesterday's recorded lap times on the Sepang circuit in Malaysia. The Finnish rider has concluded with the eighth best time yesterday but today is wasn't able to improve it and concluded in the fourteenth place. Instead, her partner team, Espargarò, has improved his best lap time by a tenth of a second, but not enough to go further then the sixteenth place. The Pramac Racing Team riders will have to improve in the coming winter test, to be held in Qatar on March 18th and 19th, in order to begin the 2010 MotoGP season at the best.
Mika Kallio - Pramac Racing rider - 14th best lap time in 2'02.082
"Yesterday in the late afternoon we had found a good technical compromise and this had given us confidence for the last working day here at Sepang, but things have not gone as we expected. I feel very well with the new bike but perhaps I have yet to find total confidence to push to the maximum. We cannot make any more mistake in the next test in Qatar next month."
Aleix Espargarò - Pramac Racing rider - 15th best lap time in 2'02.447
"This morning I was feeling well and I wasn't doing so bad, but then in the afternoon I was unable to make the step forward as most of my colleagues have done and I was back in the classification. Anyway I remain very confident because I sure have all the possibility in order to do well. I am very pleased to see the two official Ducati in the top three: I am sure we will find soon the right solution to fight for the best positions as well."
