Marquez: “Lorenzo has a very fast rhythm”

Marquez: “Lorenzo has a very fast rhythm”

Marc Marquez ends Friday practice second overall and admits his target is to try and close the gap to Jorge Lorenzo.

Marquez ended FP1 in second place, just 0.151s behind the pace of Lorenzo. In FP2 Marc managed to improve and finished the session on top with a 1’56.513. He was one of the few top riders to improve on time from the morning, despite crashing late on in the session at turn seven, fortunately walking away from the incident. His time placed him second for the day in the combined times. Marquez had also crashed earlier in FP1 too. The Spaniard is aiming to make it three wins in a row after taking victory at the Sachsenring and Indianapolis.

Marc Marquez: “Today was a very productive day, we have obtained a lot of data and we have seen that this will not be an easy circuit. I am fast over a single lap, but I am finding it harder to set a constant pace. In FP2 we finished first, but more importantly we have made a step forward with our pace, because it seems that Lorenzo has a very fast rhythm. This afternoon we got close to him and we will see if tomorrow we can continue to improve, in order to be as close as possible to the top.”
