Dani Pedrosa left the first MotoGP Sepang test contented, having posted the sixth fastest time of last week while completing no less than 1,064 kilometers (662 miles).
In terms of mileage, Pedrosa ended the three-day test second only to Suzuki Test Team’s Randy de Puniet, whilst the Repsol Honda Team rider focused on ironing out his weaker areas. In-turn, this followed an energetic off-season for the 28-year-old.Dani Pedrosa, MotoGP, Sepang
Damon Hill has counted himself out of the furore surrounding the new ‘double points’ innovation for 2014.
Mercedes boss Toto Wolff said recently the fans’ adverse reaction was akin to a “sh**storm,” and should give rule-makers pause to reconsider handing out twice as many points in the Abu Dhabi finale.
His predecessor, Norbert Haug, is also no fan.Damon Hill, Formula 1, Norbert Haug, Toto Wolff
The Suzuki Test Team was back in action as MotoGP testing resumed at the Sepang International Circuit last week. For Randy de Puniet and the squad, the focus on this occasion was the spec Magneti Marelli ECU hardware.
Ahead of Suzuki’s MotoGP return in 2015, it began testing last year with an ECU supplied by fellow Japanese company Mitsubishi. However, with 2014 marking the season from which every bike in the field must run ECU hardware supplied by Dorna Sports and Magneti Marelli, Suzuki began testing the spec device in Malaysia last week.MotoGP, Randy de Puniet, Sepang, Suzuki
