Marquez: “We have solved a few of the problems”

Marquez: “We have solved a few of the problems”

Marquez returned to the front at the Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya, his home round.

The morning session saw Repsol Honda finish in first and second, with Marc Marquez taking the top spot ahead of teammate Dani Pedrosa. A time of 1’41.808 for Marquez was already highly competitive. The Spaniard went on to improve to a 1’41.443 in FP2, only Team Suzuki Ecstar’s Aleix Espargaro went faster. This did not worry the double MotoGP™ champion, who focused on set up changes and fixing the problems he encountered in Mugello. Honda also brought a new exhaust for Marquez to test today.

Marc Marquez: "I'm happy because I felt pretty good on the bike. We are working with a focus on the second part of the race, because at this track the tyres degrade a lot, but it¹s the same for everyone. We did some tests and it seems that we have solved a few of the problems we have had, but we must continue with this because I still don’t feel quite right. However, I think we have definitely taken a step forward. That is the important thing: Improving and getting increasingly closer to the top time. Anyway, we still have work to do to prepare the second part of the race when tyres drop down."
