“Overall, the test has been very positive. After the race in Silverstone, it’s good that we found ourselves here in similar hot and dry conditions to do some testing. We suffered some grip issues during that race, so that was one of our targets here for this test. Over the two days Vale and Maverick tried the new 2020 engine-spec, the new carbon fibre rear arm, the new Akrapovič exhaust, and we also worked on the aerobody. All those items have been approved by our riders and will most likely be used at the next race. We’ve not strayed from our plan and kept focused on maximising the race pace whilst preparing for the upcoming rounds. We will gather all the data to make further steps and are looking forward to the race here in Misano in two weeks’ time.”
