Dovizioso: “We were able to finish the programme”

Lorenzo, meanwhile, ended the second day in fourth – and made good progress with his riding style. “In these tests we didn’t really try out anything new, but we picked up some very useful information for the development of next year’s bike,” explains the Italian. “I felt really good, improving my performance on the bike by changing some things in my riding style, and I set some good times. However we must continue to work to find the tenths that we are still missing at some tracks. We also tried the new Öhlins forks, but we know that the most important new things will only arrive at Sepang for the first test of 2018.”
