SCOTT RED­DING 2m 00.645s

“I’m strug­gling mainly with chat­ter on new Miche­lin tyres on the Du­cati, but we fixed some is­sues with turn­ing and the front clos­ing, which is good. The chat­ter is in­cred­i­ble, though – at the point where I just couldn’t go around some cor­ners. It meant we didn’t show our full po­ten­tial, but our used tyre pace is good, which is re­as­sur­ing.”

BRADLEY SMITH 2m 01.338s

“We’ve cer­tainly made progress. Both my­self and Pol are still work­ing in a sim­i­lar di­rec­tion, and it’s nice that we’re do­ing the same times on a sim­i­lar bike (he posted the ex­act same time as his team-mate). We still have things to im­prove, but there are other things that I’ve seen where we’re ac­tu­ally re­ally strong com­pared to other man­u­fac­tur­ers.”

SAM LOWES 2m 01.341

“I’m re­ally happy with the three days test­ing. We ended up less than two sec­onds from the fastest time by the end of the third day af­ter be­ing 3.6sec away on the first day, so we def­i­nitely made progress! I still don’t re­ally feel like it’s my bike and I didn’t get a chance to go out on a new tyre in the morn­ing and push for a fast lap, so I feel I could have gone faster if I had re­ally needed to.”
