Broc's first thoughts on debut MotoGP outing at Sepang
February 13th, 2014

First thoughts on the PBM Aprilia package…

I was little bit concerned initially, because it was their own chassis. I didn’t really know what to expect in that sense. But in general, the whole package wasn’t too bad – it didn’t do anything really strange or anything like that.

For my new chief mechanic Tom Larsen and I it was all new, so we just tried to go out and try to get as much time on the bike as possible without wrecking myself on the first day! But after three days on the bike I felt quite good, and I think the package is only going to get better.

Impressions following the first three-day test at Sepang…

I expected to be where we were in terms of the times. The bike and riding style, tyres, and brakes and everything is just completely new for me. Every lap I went out on the bike I was learning stuff.

It was a bit hard to get the confidence to be able to push the brakes so late, and to feel the g-forces from the bike into the corner and to load the front and the bike actually turn, it took a little while to understand. But every lap I was learning something and starting to get more confident to run such big lean angles and stuff like that.
