#41 BRAD BINDER
“The three days of testing we’ve had here at Jerez have been quite positive, and day-by-day we’ve improved our lap times and pace. In each session I took tenths off my best lap, and that confirms how comfortable I have felt on the KTM. I feel we have worked very hard these days and that the team have done a great job; I want to thank them for that. I am happy about how everything is working out and the fact that we are already at a good level. Now it’s time to keep working hard at home, in order to come back here strong in two weeks and continue with our preseason.”
