We are starting from zero in Jerez

AB Motoracing is still suffering technical issues that already complicated the race in Argentina. Karel Abraham rode 21st time in the opening practice losing just 1.6 seconds to the fastest rider Jorge Lorenzo.

„There was really hot in the afternoon which is not good for us at all. We suffer some problems with rear shock absorber and unfortunately it gets more serious with increasing temperature. Actually, we are cooperating intensively in Showa to solve eliminate this issue. Even we are focused on the rear, we must not forget the front, which had been quite unpredictable today. We have also some work to be done on electronics, but nothing grave.“

“After Argentina we must change completely the setup of the rear. In fact we were on the zero this morning. Our problems are growing ass the air gets warmer during the day and we are still not close to a solution. We tried both soft and hard tyres, but it´s difficult to compare, because the track conditions are changing from the morning to the afternoon. The track temperature reached 45 degrees in the second practice and most riders slowed down compared to the morning. We will continue to work tomorrow trying to improve also the response of the front wheel.”
