In addition, one of his two Hondas was built with a new chassis that contained carbon reinforcements. "We talked about it yesterday and today we did comparison tests. It works well in principle, but we have to analyze the data."

"The difference is not big. We want to do more benchmark tests either tomorrow or in the future because it is absolutely worth trying again." It is also possible that Bradl will use this chassis in the race on Sunday.

"That depends on how it would go tomorrow. As always, there are pros and cons. If we can make modifications to amplify the advantages, then there would be an option to use this chassis on Sunday. That is but too early to say. "

New set-up the step in the right direction

Bradl has been using a modification to the exhaust since Le Mans. Honda focuses on those areas where further development is allowed. New parts are tested with Bradl. In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, engine and aerodynamics were frozen by regulations in order to save costs.

  Opinion: COVID-19 didn't defeat the Tennessee Titans, and neither has any NFL team yet The Tennessee Titans were ready, and they had a blast after being sidelined for two weeks, rolling past a good opponent in the Buffalo Bills.Embarrassed, frustrated, angry, sad – you name it, the Titans were there.

Honda and Bradl are moving forward. During the first weekend in Aragon, he had radically changed the set-up. That bore fruit at the Rennpace. However, he still struggled to fully understand the new set-up in qualifying.

The two fast laps on today's training day showed that Bradl also found something with the time attack. "We work very hard and see improvements. But we have to get everything to the point, including me."

"I drove a very good race last Sunday, but of course the result was not satisfactory. If you look at the lap times, it was a good race. You could see that I too made a step forward."

It comes as no surprise to the test driver that Honda is back among the leaders overall: "We have been fighting for a few weeks and months to find the right path. Honda now seems to be more competitive."

"But it was clear to us that we would be competitive if we find the right things. It looks like we've changed the right things. Nevertheless, the gaps are very close. Tomorrow everything can change quickly. We have to be ready be."

From his point of view, it was right to take the new path with set-up that Alex Marquez has been following since Misano. "With the changes in the set-up, the motorcycle steers a little easier," describes Bradl. "At the same time, it's not that easy to understand the feel of the front tire."

In the MotoGP everything is a compromise. There are also external influences: "The temperatures are a little higher here than last weekend. That's why we can use the medium front tires more easily. That helps a little."
