Sixth in Jerez official test
After having studied the track and the new bike, Pramac Racing Finnish rider Mika Kallio has found the right compromise to conquer the sixth position in the official test in Jerez de la Frontera.
This weekend Mika has tried different
technical solutions and yesterday thanks to the work of his technicians has found an almost perfect bike for the 45 minutes official session. A great start for the Pramac Racing rookie.
“Between yesterday and this morning we have studied the situation of the track and the bike. Together with my Technical Director, Fabiano Sterlacchini, we have put together all the positive things we found and we had an almost perfect bike”, Kallio explained. “I still lose too much time in the last sector otherwise we could have finished in an even better position. We are doing a great work and I believe we can keep up the good work also in the first race in Qatar.”
Opposite sensation in the other half of the box where Niccolò Canepa couldn't manage to go more than the eighteenth position. Niccolò found too many complications this weekend that didn't allow him to work in total tranquillity.
“Day of immense emotions. I have taken my first official photo with the great MotoGP riders. Then I have done a photo with all the Italian riders, I almost wanted to ask if I could have taken a picture of them.
I was beside Vale, Macho, Loris, Dovi and De Angelis. But then things didn't go too well for me during official qualifying, as it has been yesterday”, he said. “I couldn't manage to be fast in the corners and I was losing too much time. I hope in Qatar things will go better. Surely I can guarantee I will keep my morale high and never give up.”
Next appointment in two weeks times in Qatar for the first race of the season.
