Alex Márquez praised his team after getting the most out of the final in-season MotoGP test which was held at Misano on Tuesday and Wednesday. The LCR Honda CASTROL man worked hard across both days to finetune his package and is now looking forward to implementing the improvements in his home Grand Prix in Aragon.
While the Spaniard and his team were not given any new items to test by HRC, they took the opportunity to refine existing parts and settings and made encouraging progress. As ever, Alex got through a heavy workload to rack up nearly 140 laps over the two days, finishing 19th fastest on day one, before breaking the 1’32 lap barrier on Wednesday afternoon.
Alex Márquez – 17th (1’31.864): “Today was a positive second day of tests. We had zero items from Honda to try, so we focused on our package and to evaluate the items that we have (received) during the season and not to make the mistake of trying them and confusing things during a GP (weekend). So we made progress on that and have improved our package a lot with things like the feeling. I’m really happy how the team worked in this situation because having no items is not easy. We did a good job and everyone worked really hard, so I’m happy about that and ready for the home GP in Aragon.”
