John McPhee satisfied with three-day Sepang test session

 In News

John McPhee and Ayumu Sasaki leave Malaysia tonight in good spirits after three days testing their Honda machines at the Sepang International Circuit, the Scotsman getting more and more comfortable with the Honda after riding different machinery last season.

John is getting more and more comfortable with the Honda, and by the end of the three days here he was happy that he has found a competitive base setting himself. The Scotsman also managed to improve his rhythm and his lap time, two key areas ahead of the new season.

Next stop for the PETRONAS Sprinta Racing Team will be Jerez, the venue for three more days of preseason testing on 20th, 21st and 22nd February.

“I am really happy with the last three days here. The first two allowed us to take some steps forward and today I am feeling very satisfied because I feel like we have established a good base to work from at Jerez. In general, we are improving our feeling on the bike, the race pace is very good and we have also improved the lap time. Overall we have had three fruitful days and the main thing is that the bike is working well and the team are doing a great job, so I am very happy.”
