Circuit of the Americas Press Release:

The nuts and bolts of Sepang Testing:

COTA: What were your major takeaways from your first 2014 preseason test in Malaysia?

COLIN: The good thing is we know the bike is competitive. I struggled a bit with front end feel, but we have a direction for next test. All in all, considering my teammate's time, it was a good test for us. (NOTE: Edwards' teammate, Aleix Espargaró, finished the Sepang test with a best lap time of 1:59.998, one of only four riders to complete a lap in less than two minutes.)

COTA: What will you and your team focus on prior to the next test session (Feb. 26-28)?

COLIN:  Mainly figuring out how to induce more feel on the front. We have some ideas and the guys are headed back to the workshop to make it happen.

On a personal note:

COTA: What's your favorite meal after a long day at the track?

COLIN: My favorite meal after a long day of riding is without a doubt Penne Arrabbiata. I like spicy food anyways, but mixed with a big plate of fuel is delicious!

COTA: Who is the person in motorsports you admire most and why?

COLIN: Hmmm, that's hard to pick out just one. I admire anyone who straps on a helmet and chases their dream. From Chad Reed to (Sebastian) Vettel to Valentino (Rossi) and across the board...I admire them all.
