Marc Márquez improved his best time from the morning by almost a second in the afternoon’s Free Practice 2 session.

After leading the way for much of FP2, the reigning MotoGP World Champion completed the first day of the San Marino Grand Prix in fifth place.

Dani Pedrosa, seventh in the morning, finished eleventh in FP2 and twelfth on the combined timesheets for the day.

I’m very happy today because we worked really well here starting with a good setup since the beginning and made a little step in the afternoon also. The other guys did a test two weeks ago so we just tried to be very precise in every step of our work and we’re already happy with our pace. I feel good with the bike, I can ride well. We didn’t put on a new tyre in the end because our target is mainly working for the race, like always. We’ll see tomorrow how things go; it seems like many riders are quite strong but we’re very equal already.

Today was bit complicated. Lap times are very tight because we were expecting rain and we had to push to try to be in the top 10. It was therefore difficult to concentrate on the work on the bike setup. Luckily we ultimately also had a full dry session in the afternoon and we managed to try something that’s going to be a bit helpful, but we missed a top 10 by a nothing. Hopefully it will be dry tomorrow and we’ll be able to improve. At the moment the second and the fourth sections are not my best, so we’ll look to improve especially there, to try and be faster.
