Marquez: “Very long day!”

Repsol Honda rider begins his title defence in P4 on Day 1 of testing

Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) began his first day of the 2017 season on good form and in good spirits, registering a 1:31.102 as his best lap, completing 53 laps and putting in his fastest time on the 33rd.

Marc Marquez (P4): “It has been a very long test day, because when the bikes are new, it takes a lot of time to make changes and get back out on track. We only did one stint with the bike we used in the Grand Prix, to see what condition the track was in, and then we started to work on the new bike. As a rider, it's a bit boring because I had to wait a long time in the garage because with everything being new the engineers have to adjust a lot of things along the way, but finally we were able to try several solutions. Let's see if tomorrow we can continue improving and make the most of the day.”
