BUSY 2ND DAY OF TESTING FOR SUZUKI ECSTAR IN QATAR

(Saturday, 11 March 2017)

The second day of testing at the Losail International Circuit in Qatar didn’t bring big improvements in the single lap time, but gave the riders and engineers the chance to try many solutions and get important information. Andrea Iannone and Alex Rins worked intensively today to explore different configurations that could allow them to find a positive performance towards the race.

Iannone’s focus stayed fixed on developing the set-up and electronic configuration, the sort of low-profile job that hopefully will pay back as preparation for the race. He is still encountering a lack of sensitivity with the front end, which has been investigated by the team and is still under evaluation in order to find some solutions.

Positive progress was also made by Rins. He was able to finalise some better set-ups that allowed him to feel more confident on the bike and he also tried the new fairing again that had already been introduced in Australia. The result of all this work done by the riders is the collection of an important amount of data that will be useful to the engineers.
