End of the first official IRTA test for the young rider of the Sky VR46 Avintia who is making his first steps on the Ducati MotoGP.
Doha (Qatar), March 7th 2021 - Luca Marini's first official test of 2021 in archive after two days of hard work to continue to become familiar with the new Ducati MotoGP.The rider of the Sky VR46 Avintia has completed about hundred laps at Losail track and was able to improve his lap time, the position on the bike and the electronics. Positive feelings and a best of 1.55.605 signed in the final stages of the Day2.
Of the three, today is definitely the day I enjoyed the most. I was able to ride more easily, I made a good step forward on the setting and a great job in the garage. I have done a lot on my riding style in braking and now I am closer to the other Ducati guys. In these days before the second testing session we will check the data to understand in which area to focus and further evolve my style. The riding position is better, I can do more laps and keep a good pace. I am doing a lot in terms of electronics, I have more confidence on the front too and I have pushed more on the tires that are really very different from Dunlop. We have to work on many details to be 100%, but we can think of a race simulation in the next session.
