Then, taking a look at Rins’ runs. The Spaniard did two separate longer runs, one seven-lap effort and then another seven-lap stint. In the first run, his opening time was a super impressive 1:59.192, his next best being a 1:59.484 with the others coming in the form of 59.6s and 59.7s. 15 minutes later, Rins came out and slammed in a further four 59.7s, before a 1:59.296 on his penultimate lap of the run. With Suzuki’s new engine and chassis, the Hamamatsu factory are looking extremely strong heading to Qatar.
