Marc Márquez makes flying start

Marc Márquez almost beat the circuit record at MotorLand Aragón in the first Free Practice session -going just 2 tenths slower-, with a 1.617s advantage over his closest rival.

In the afternoon, the reigning World Champion topped the timesheets until 15 minutes from the end, when a crash at Turn 8 prevented him from continuing to improve.

The Repsol Honda Team rider was fourth in FP2, 190 thousandths of a second off the top. However, his time in the FP1 was the best of the day.

Teammate Jorge Lorenzo improved by more than a second between the two sessions today, and finished twentieth.

Aragon GP 2019 – FP2 – Riders statements


Today we started very well and actually we ended quite well too. In the morning we did our time attack, I felt good and with the potential weather tomorrow I thought it was best. It was a quite good lap!

In the afternoon we worked a lot with used tyres and unfortunately had a small crash but we learned a lot from it. Aside from this little fall everything went well and I think there’s still some more time to find.


We struggled with the feeling today and I was hoping to be more competitive after our stronger start in Misano. In the afternoon I was able to improve a bit, but still I am looking to close the gap more. Sadly it looks like it will rain tomorrow which makes it a little harder for us as we will have less time to set up the bike but I will be able to do some running in the wet.
