160608_138

Team SUZUKI ECSTAR’s Maverick Viñales and Aleix Espargaró enjoyed one day of official IRTA MotoGP™ testing at the circuit of Catalunya in Spain as a follow-up to yesterday’s race that saw Viñales in third place with a lap-time of 1:44.310 and Espargaró fifth with a 1:44.717-lap.

The main objective for the team was to verify the data collected during the weekend and compare them with different settings that have been developed so far. This also included a further test of the chassis: The riders had at their disposal the evolution chassis that they tested two weeks ago in Valencia, therefore having more time and less pressure to test them freely; and this was also useful to decide which frame will be used at the next race at Assen in The Netherlands on June 26th.

The work on the chassis brought many set-up configurations and electronics, in particular verifying what happened in yesterday’s race regarding the issue that forced Espargaró to retire with seven laps to go. The outcome today was positive, as the team gathered a lot more information and useful data that will help them to better-manage the electronics, especially with tyre management and performance drop; this having been the cause for yesterday’s fault in the electronics on Espargaró’s machine.
