Fresh from challenging for the top-ten in Austin, Stefan Bradl was back competing against the MotoGP field as a wildcard with the HRC Test Team. Combining a race weekend with a few key test items, the German worked through the items he had to.

A best time of 1’37.873 saw Bradl end the day in 20th place, 0.8s from top Honda rider Takaaki Nakagami in ninth place.

Saturday will see Bradl contest his second MotoGP Sprint Race, the red-hot conditions of Jerez adding in another challenge.

“We had a decent opening day here in Jerez, a track I am familiar with after many tests here. Today we tried a few items, as is our job as the Test Team, and we were able to work well while improving our speed. The temperature this weekend is going to make things a bit more complicated because it changes the track condition quite a lot, but we keep on working and adapting. The target for tomorrow is to make another step and get closer once more to the front.”
