Marquez: “I enjoyed myself on the bike”

Marquez: “I enjoyed myself on the bike”

Marc Marquez finished the day in second at the Motul TT Assen after trying a new set-up with his RC213V.

Repsol Honda’s Marquez ended the day in second just behind his teammate Dani Pedrosa as he tried out his 2014 frame with his 2015 engine, swingarm and electronics, and seemed pleased with the outcome.

Marc Marquez: “Today went fairly well and I'm happy because we had some more normal free practice sessions ‒ riding with a good pace and used tyres ‒ and I enjoyed myself on the bike. It’s clear that we still have to work hard and improve, but I'm happy with how things went. We expected Jorge and Valentino to be further ahead of us at this circuit, but this has not been the case. Dani was fastest and I was second which is good for the team. However, this is only practice and we must continue to progress, and I think that Valentino especially has a strong pace."
