Marquez: “We have drawn some very positive conclusions”

Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez tried out a new swingarm as he only completed 31 laps during the Jerez test to protect his broken finger.

Due to fatigue from his injury and in order to give him a chance to recover, Marc – who finished second yesterday – only tested for two hours but it was important to receive his feedback on the new swingarm HRC brought from Japan. Marc completed 31 laps with his best time 1’38.968 placing him 5th fastest.

Marc Marquez:
"I'm happy with the work we have done today. I put in a few laps, as we planned last night, basically just to test out a swingarm. HRC engineers wanted us to analyse it to find out if we could use it in the coming races, to see where we can improve and which direction to continue working in. We have drawn some very positive conclusions that have allowed us to improve in some aspects today, and we have obtained a lot of information for further development with things that have been a little bit more difficult, for example corner entry.”
