Johann Zarco

“This last day of testing we again have very good weather. It is a pleasure to ride in such temperatures. We did not want to make a mistake because of the cold and luckily we were able to try some things on the bike, to confirm whether the setup for the suspension and chassis were the right ones. We have completed the testing we wanted to do and we are very happy with it.

We finished off with a race simulation. We cannot draw many conclusions from it, because you don’t compete against other riders at the same time, but it shows us that we are consistent and how I feel on the bike. It allowed us to also analyse the feeling with a full tank and empty tank and the differences in braking and handling with the bike. We have gathered a lot of information and we have the next test within a month. I will try to continue the good feeling, have a positive mindset and try to improve the times when we return to Jerez.”
