The two riders of the Pramac Racing Team, Johann Zarco and Jorge Martín were in action today at the Losail Circuit for the penultimate day of official testing in Qatar.
Zarco conquered the ninth position with the time of 1:54.056 during the 53rd lap of 71 total.
The French was busy today, gathering as much information as possible in order to have more control over the bike and understand where he can still improve.
It was also a positive day for Martín, despite a crash without consequences at turn 15.
The Spanish rider tried long run and a time attack for the first time today, which was essential to gather important data for the race.
Jorge completed a total of 42 laps, stopping the clock at 1:54.483, 4 thousandths of a second off the top ten, and finishing in 14th position.
Today we tried the time attack and a long run for the first time,
I am very satisfied, both for the time I managed to set and for the way we are working.
It was a very productive day that helped me to understand a lot of things, and above all I can see that we are taking big steps forward day after day and this helps me to have more and more confidence.
We were planning to do a long run at the end of the day to gather more information about how the bike might behave in race conditions but there was more work to do than expected.
It was a very exciting day, I did 71 laps, we worked on many aspects to improve the feeling and control even more.
I am sure that if we continue to work like this we will be able to take great satisfaction.
