NINJA HAS COME OUT FIGHTING
“We would like to have been more excited after the winter tests. Or maybe we should have put in a qualifying tyre to do fast lap times. We could have. But as you saw last year our approach, our strategy and our philosophy is just to work hard. This is what we do. It is not more serious than before but we are working all the time to understand the bike.
“It seems like this new bike is working very well and Jonathan had a great first race, much faster than last year. But the other competitors are close. I am sure that our bike still has a lot of potential – we just need more time. I am sure we can make a step forward because the bike is so new.
“We have tried different crankshaft weight options, different solutions but let me say, this is like a kind of set-up tool. Depending on the track layout, grip level and so on. You can use one a little bit lighter, a little bit heavier. We are also still understanding this. And many, many other things too.
“We are already faster than last year but we will get better.”
