Wildcard weekend underway for Bradl

2022-04-29 04:06
Stefan Bradl’s first day on board the Team HRC machine yielded a 22nd place finish, the German rider beginning a busy wildcard weekend.

As one of Honda HRC’s two European test tracks, Jerez de la Frontera has seen Stefan Bradl complete a huge number of laps in recent years. With this knowledge, Bradl was immediately able to get to work and set respectable times during his first wildcard of the year. A best time of 1’38.322 in Free Practice 2 had Bradl just over a second off Quartararo’s best time and only a tenth behind Marc Marquez.

“Our weekend has started and so far we have been able to work quite well. We know the Jerez Circuit quite well from testing so this helps us show our speed a bit more. I am content with our pace, as always MotoGP is very tight, so although our position does not look great – the time is not bad for the first day. Finally, we are just over half a second from a spot in the top ten. Our work continues as we test and evaluate some items for HRC.”
