LCR Honda IDEMITSU rider Takaaki Nakagami finished 20th on Friday.
It’s been one of the most challenging Fridays of the season so far, as cold temperatures, new items to try, and some other difficulties have prevented the team and the rider from following the initial plan. After analyzing the situation, the crew and Nakagami are ready to take a step forward and push on tomorrow's sessions.
LCR Honda CASTROL replacement rider Iker Lecuona has finished 22nd on Friday.
Replacing Alex Rins, compatriot Lecuona has had the first day of track action with the LCR crew. Jumping on a bike just for a weekend, when the season is underway, and standing in for another rider is always challenging. Iker has given his best to help the team by sharing his feedback and feelings while testing his package.
