MotoGP: Marquez, Pedrosa finish Catalunya test with mixed feelings

Home / MotoGP / MotoGP: Marquez, Pedrosa finish Catalunya test with mixed feelings

marc-marquez-honda-2016Following Sunday’s double podium finish, Championship leader Marc Marquez and teammate Dani Pedrosa were back on track yesterday for a one-day official post-race test.

The Repsol Honda duo carried out similar testing programs, including electronics settings to improve the power delivery on corner exits, a new chassis and a new exhaust. Marc found some positives points and gathered ample data that he thinks the HRC engineers will be able to build on in the next races. Dani had already tried the new chassis and had raced on it yesterday, and today he continued to carry out some comparison tests.

Both riders suffered small crashes, Dani in turn 2 around 1:30 p.m., Marc later in the afternoon at turn 5. Neither incident involved consequences for the riders, but they were prevented from completing all of the planned tests with the Michelin new rear tyres.

Marc set the eighth-quickest time in 1’45.029 on lap 42 of 77. Dani finished the day 10th with a time of 1’45.379 on lap 21 of 39.
