Marquez: “The first impressions were good”

Marquez: “The first impressions were good”

Marc Marquez tried out last year’s chassis at the post-GP test in Barcelona, and seemed pleased with the results.

Unfortunately heavy rain interrupted the test at midday, nevertheless, Marc was able to complete three runs and had an opportunity to test last year’s chassis – equipped with the 2015 engine, swing arm and exhaust – and gave positive first impressions. He completed a total of twenty laps, recording his fastest time of 1’42.197 on lap three, placing him 4th fastest.

Marc Marquez: “We didn’t have much luck with the weather today, it started to rain very early on and we could only do three runs. The important thing is that the one point we did try – last year’s chassis with this year’s swingarm and engine gave us a positive feeling. We have to confirm our findings and compare the telemetry, because it wasn’t a huge step forward and we couldn’t do many laps, but the first impressions were good. The rain interrupted our work, but we'll see if we can continue working in this way because I’m feeling better on the bike all the time."
