Marquez: "With the used tyre we must improve a lot!"

2013 and 2014 MotoGP™ champion makes spectacular save on the way to P1

Watch Marquez pull off the save of the century!

Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) had a relatively anonymous FP1 at the Automotodrom Brno, as the points leader went sixth fastest in a session dominated by Andrea Iannone (Ducati Team). Marquez hit back in the afternoon however, after defying gravity in almost trademarked #MM93 style at Turn 13 as he saved a crash that had most definitely already happened – before heading into the pits to regroup. His second assault in FP2 saw the championship leader top the timesheets on Friday and lay down a benchmark for the grid to think about overnight.

Marc Marquez (P1): “Today wasn’t an easy day, especially in the morning when we started and the feeling wasn’t so good. Then for the afternoon we changed and we made some changes in the electronics and the setup and it was working slightly better. We still have to improve. Ok, we were first and have the fastest time but with the used tyre we must improve a lot. It looks like both Yamaha riders are strong here, which is what we already expected – and we’ll see if we can improve our rhythm because especially Iannone on the Ducati is fast, too.”
