The first official tests of the 2020 MotoGP season ended today at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit in Valencia. After the extraordinary podium obtained on Sunday, Jack Miller was back on track to try some new parts that will be proposed again in the Jerez tests scheduled for the beginning of next week.
The Australian rider finished the first day of activity with the tenth time, also setting the top speed (328.9 km/h).
On the second day, Jack further improved both in terms of speed (with an impressive 335.4 km/h) and lap time (1’30.854, three tenths faster than his best crono on day-1).
Francesco Bagnaia did not take part in the Valencia tests. Pecco, forced to miss the last race of the 2019 season due to a scary crash in the FP3, returned on Monday to Italy where he is doing further examinations – especially on his left wrist – that will have to give the ok for his participation in the next Jerez tests.
Get well soon Pecco!
I am very satisfied for these two days of testing and for having finished the season giving a great satisfaction to the team. We have worked hard on some new parts, and today I had the chance to test the 2020 chassis that I will use again in Jerez. The feeling is extremely positive and I can’t wait to get back on track next week for the last two days of testing. Then we will enjoy the well-deserved winter holidays with the whole team.
