04/02/2013. MOTOGP TEST SEPANG
17 th Nicky Hayden 2.03.319 (56 laps): "To say it's only the first day here the pace is very fast. I was happy to get back on the bike today and even though we have a lot of work ahead I can say That the electronics package is improved from what we used at Valencia, Certainly in terms of the power delivery. We have to work on acceleration out of the slow corners but I really like the way this bike handles. The chassis is really stable over the bumps here. We are a long way off the pace at the top, partly Because This is such a long track and the difference is more exaggerated.But we will try to chip away and reduce the gap. Tomorrow we will work on finding a bit more grip in corner entry and a few other basic things to try and adapt more to the bike. "
Hiroshi Aoyama 18th 2.03.328 (51 laps): "After two months without get on a motorcycle Grand Prix this morning I was excited, I really wanted to train. The start of the test was positive, we tested the new bike with optimal sensations. This morning we had an issue with the braking system, but we've completely reworked and fixed. After this I was able to ride with much more consistency, and gradually my feeling with the bike have been improving.And at the end of the day we have improved our times. Today we have improved since the middle of the curves to check out, something very positive.Tomorrow we will continue working in the same direction to find further improvements. "
