Abraham's good performance in Friday's practice

The World Motorcycle Championship, MotoGP now continues at the circuit Termas de Río Hondo in Argentina. Afternoon free parctice was partly influenced by the weather conditions, when most of the riders stayed for more than ten minutes in the pits due to raindrops falling at the track surface. The Czech rider Karel Abraham got throught  this tricky situation well and after first day stays on good fifteenth position with the time of 1: 41.586.

„In the morning practice we made some changes and were also trying different setups and tyres. The bike started to work very well in the second free practice and this resulted in good lap time. After last year experience we know now that the track is very dusty during the mornings and it turns better in the afternoon. Today was the same situation and we must cope with these conditions. We´ll see tomorrow plus the weather should be as same as today.“

„We are very happy with today´s result. In the morning we started with hardest rear tyre and softest front tyre. The first day is the track here always full of send dust and it influenced morning lap times. We tried some different set up in the afternoon and it worked. Now we must wait till tomorrow how the track will look like and make good solution about tyres. We have one more parctice session to improve the best lap time and to understand more some things. Top 15 is good, but we are confident now about improving this position little more.“
