Even the satel­lite Yams are strong

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

The fac­tory Mo­vis­tar Yamaha duo weren’t the only Yamaha rid­ers to im­press at the Sepang test, with an in­cred­i­ble per­for­mance from the Mon­ster Yamaha Tech 3 duo of Jo­hann Zarco and Jonas Fol­ger.

Al­though not at the top of the timesheets, the two Mo­togp rook­ies adapted well to the 2016-spec M1 machines, with dou­ble Moto2 cham­pion Zarco de­lighted with his pace in 11th and Fol­ger round­ing out the top 15.

Zarco said: “We closed the test in a pos­i­tive way and I am happy about what we man­aged to ac­com­plish, even if it was nec­es­sary to rest my body a bit on the fi­nal day. When we used our last new tyre I was able to get un­der the two-minute lap mark. Now I am ea­ger to see what we can do at Phillip Is­land.”
