Marquez: “Our initial feeling is positive"

 Marquez: “Our initial feeling is positive'

Marquez continued his dominance in Austin by finishing fastest overall on the first day of practice, despite only managing five dry laps.

After a wet start to the Red Bull GP of The Americas, this afternoon the track dried up and allowed the MotoGP riders the opportunity to experience some dry track time.

The track improved as the FP2 session continued and it was reigning World Champion, Marc Marquez, who finished on top. His time of 2’04.835 recorded on his final lap of ten, placed him 0.327 seconds ahead of satellite Honda rider Cal Crutchlow in the combined times.

Marc Marquez:
“Today was a positive day and in general it went fairly well. In the morning we rode in wet conditions, which was important because it is possible that Sunday’s race will be under the same circumstances and we were able to discard a few things. In the second session we were able to ride in the dry and, although we only put in five fast laps, the feeling was good and we could draw a few conclusions. Let’s hope that tomorrow the weather is dry and we can continue trying out some modifications to the bike to improve further –although the important thing is that our initial feeling is positive.”
