“I felt very good today, we raised our performance step by step, like we intended to do. This morning I felt really great and I was able to lower my lap time by more than one second compared to my very first day on Friday. Unfortunately, I made a small mistake in turn 7 this afternoon, which interrupted my progress a bit. Yet, I try to learn from this experience. For tomorrow I want to try to improve on the bike again, plus I aim to quickly find the same feeling I had this morning.”
Syahrin suffered a big highside on his out lap, same spot as fellow rookie Franco Morbidelli, but Syahrin able to cut 1.167s his lap times during day two on the Monster Yamaha Tech3 MotoGP bike, hauling the Malaysian off the bottom of the timesheets and within 2.1s of fastest man Marc Marquez.
