Riders Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo continued to work through a number of different test items for the Yamaha engineers as well as some tyre testing for Bridgestone.
Rossi also took some time to work on bike set-up to improve performance and was able to improve on his time of yesterday, completing day two in fourth position, just over 0.5 seconds from the front.
Teammate Lorenzo had a better second day, making some improvements to the electronic setting of his YZR-M1 to provide further corner stability and overall lap time. Lorenzo wrapped up the second day in sixth position, just over 0.6 seconds from the front.

“We were able to almost finish the program for today, we got some good confirmations about the fuel consumption which was our main objective of this important test so I can say we are fairly satisfied. We then started working on Bridgestone’s program and we got some good information from that too. Tomorrow will be the day where we can take profit from our data!”
