Sepang, 10 October:
this weekend the contest for the 2013 MotoGP World Championship moves from its European heartland to the tropical heat of Malaysia, where the spectacular Sepang circuit hosts round 15 of 18.
Sepang is a popular MotoGP testing venue and the field was there for two Official Tests prior to the campaign, at the beginning and end of February respectively. Stefan Bradl has been very consistent in the last European rounds and will aim to score further important points riding his GIVI branded RC213Vs.
Stefan: “Aragon proved that our performance is getting stronger and stronger. Also, I gained a lot of confidence during that race, which gives me the motivation to continue improving at Sepang. I know that I still need a little more experience to help me manage the drop in the tyres during the last few races, but hopefully I can get on top of that soon. Sepang is always a real challenge considering the physical effort and the unpredictable weather but I am fully ready.
I like Sepang circuit but it’s sad to be back here without Marco (Simoncelli)”.
