Pecco Bagnaia: in Jerez the Vibration Problem Disappeared but Will Try It in Barcelona Where the Grip is Lacking

RiderTua.com – After his sensational victory at the Spanish GP, Pecco Bagnaia had a relatively calm Monday test at Jerez. The Lenovo Ducati rider said, “Yesterday we had a great day. The race was really fun, as was dinner with the whole Ducati team. But today is a new day and we are fully concentrating on further improving my feeling with the bike. ”

The test got off to an enjoyable start in ideal conditions in the morning, where Pecco was pleased with all the rubber stuck to the track from the race the day before. Diam said that the level of grip was very good and impressive, a great driving experience, much better than yesterday’s race. Pecco was able to reach the record time of 1.36 minutes easily. Going so fast in Jerez was an incredible feeling, said the Italian rider.

However, these unrealistic conditions are less suitable for testing purposes. And because Pecco Bagnaia had tried out all the new spare parts for his Desmosedici GP24 and the strong wind was blowing in the afternoon, he ended up in 4th place on the time sheet with a total of 43 laps. Much less than his rival, who completed up to 88 laps.

Francesco Bagnaia explained that many of the parts tested today had already been used in Friday’s practice. Usually Friday is the time for riders to get used to a track without having to make many modifications to their bike. At Jerez it was different, because the Ducati team wanted to track down the vibration problem and they succeeded in doing so. Today they just backtested these changes and confirmed that everything they tried worked like a charm.

Then Valentino Rossi‘s student tried to simulate a track with less grip, such as Barcelona, with used tires. According to him, Barcelona could be one of the tracks where riders will have difficulty fighting vibrations again. The less grip there is, the more vibration problems will occur on Ducati bikes. They have also tried the new Michelin front tire. It seems that the tire is very good when used for hard braking maneuvers, with the front of the bike becoming more stable. But then the wind came and made the test difficult, concluded Pecco.
