'I am happy because this bike has much more power compared to the one I was used to, the electronics are totally different and I need to change my riding style to be faster, but today I rode the best bike of my life,' the content Colombian commented.
'I need to work hard, to learn a lot, because the electronics are really different from the CRT. I need to work hard on the feeling and I'll do my best. I need to do a lot of kilometers to achieve a good pace for the race, but I am faster than with my other bike. It's too early to say anything, I need more time to learn and to improve.
'I feel good physically right now - for a first day it has been not so bad. I need to understand this bike, that is really different from mine, and it has a lot of power too. I really thank Pramac and Ducati for the opportunity they have given me.'
Prior to racing PBM's ART machine this season, Hernandez - now 25 - made his MotoGP class debut in 2012 with Avintia Blusens.
