lap-by-lap I improved my feeling and I’m very happy I was able to complete this day of testing
Dani Pedrosa managed 75 laps with a fastest time of 1’37.980 to finish third fastest for the day. Marc Márquez wrapped up his day earlier, having completed 62 laps, his best time of 1’38.232 placing him fifth fastest. Both riders collected valuable feedback to prepare ahead of the French GP in two weeks’ time.
“I’m very happy with the work we did on the bike today. This morning I felt quite sore and stiff on my right side, but lap-by-lap I improved my feeling and I’m very happy I was able to complete this day of testing. We worked on the electronics and aerodynamics, along with the rest, and over the course of the day we improved our feeling, confidence, and rhythm, finding many positives while working on the bike and with the new items we tested. The team did a very good job.”
“It was a good day of testing. We didn’t do so many laps, but we completed the schedule we had planned, working mainly on the aerodynamic package. We found some positives, but we need some additional confirmations at a different circuit because we’ll only have the chance to homologate one more fairing this season. All in all, I had a good feeling on the bike, as I did yesterday.”
