Pramac Ducati Qatar MotoGP Test

Test Day 1

Good day of work at the Losail International Circuit in Doha, Qatar. Pramac Motorcycle Racing riders Mika Kallio and Aleix Espargar are highly concentrated in finding the best set up possible of their Ducati Desmosedici Sat.

The Finn has finished with the ninth best time while the Catalan rider managed to improve constantly concluding in sixteenth position.

Tomorrow’s final day of testing is for sure a good opportunity for the white and green duo to find the best technical compromise for the opening race of the 2010 MotoGP World Championship which will be held at the Losail International Circuit on April 11th.

Mika Kallio Speaks… Pramac Racing rider – 9th in 1’56.923

"We can feel satisfied with the work done today. Our lap times are very similar to those recorded last year and this gives us great confidence, as tomorrow we will have other hours to improve. For my opinion on this track I can ride my Ducati very well. I feel that we can improve and tomorrow we will do everything to find the best technical compromise."

Aleix Espargar Speaks… Pramac Racing rider – 16th in 1’57.897

"In the first day of each test I always have some difficulties but I think is normal as this is my first year in MotoGP. Maybe I go on track too aggressive and I need to relax a bit. However in the final stage of this day I found a good set-up on my Ducati that allowed me to improve. Not enough, that’s clear: tomorrow we will have to take a major step forward."
