The time 2:07,053 means a loss of 3,563 seconds to the fastest Marc Marquez and to the closest rider on the same bike to Hiroshi Aoyama a loss of just 12 thousandths of second.

The Czech rider improved again his time on Saturday holding sixteenth position with 1:56,715 nearly to the end of the qualifying practice. Unfortunately he lost few seconds more than expected in the last pit stop and lost the chance to make one more lap in the end of QP1. Thus two riders on same bikes Honda RCV1000R, Hiroshi Aoyama and Scott Redding, jump over him.

Karel Abraham holds eighteenth position before Saturday qualifying practice of Grand Prix in Qatar. Although Karel completed team plans to get half a second down from Thursday´s lap time, today´s result wasn´t enough competitive to move up in the standing. Cardion AB team focused more on bike setting than on the final lap time today. This allowed the team to save more soft tyres for Saturday program and this could be Karel´s advantage in the fight for grid position.

Final day of Sepang tests ended sooner for Czech MotoGP rider Karel Abraham. Struggling from the shoulder Abraham only tested some particular setups of the bike and quit the raceway to get back to the Czech Republic and start rehabilitation as soon as possible.

He made less laps than during first MotoGP testing day, nevertheless Karel managed to get faster, eight tenth seconds respect to yesterday with injured shoulder and he moved one position up. The situation is clearer also about injured shoulder. Apparently Abraham‘s difficulties are caused by lack of movement that should be adjusted by another rehabilitation.
