Positive Start For Marquez And Pedrosa On Day One In Jerez


Under blisteringly hot weather conditions in Spain, both riders went out on track this morning looking for the best setup for the twisty Andalusian track. Both Marc and Dani spent the morning session on the soft rear Bridgestone tyre, as the track was still quite ‘green’ and the asphalt just 24ºC. As temperatures rose in the afternoon – air by 10ºC to 31ºC, and track to 49ºC – both riders took the opportunity to use the medium compound rear tyre.

Marc was able to improve slightly on his morning time by 0.092s with a time of 1’39.757 on his third lap of eighteen, placing him fastest in FP2 and third fastest for the day. Dani didn’t improve in the afternoon (fastest time in FP2 1’40.491) and his time of 1’39.860 from the morning placed him fourth fastest for the day.

TEAM QUOTES

Marc Marquez
3rd - 1'39.757
"Today was a positive first day at a track where I had a lot of difficulty last year. It seems as if this year we are at the same level as the faster riders like Dani, Lorenzo and Rossi right from the start, and this is obviously important. With that accomplished, we have also tried to work on things, but it was much easier to set a fast lap and pace this morning, than when the temperatures rose this afternoon. I think that everyone had grip issues, due to the track temperatures reaching 50 degrees. Tomorrow, we will try to take another step forward and work towards qualifying and the race”

Dani Pedrosa
4th - 1'39.860
"I think that today went well, but we also need to work hard because of the track conditions. It is a lot different riding in the morning compared to in the afternoon, and in both cases there is not sufficient grip. In any case, the race takes place in the afternoon and we will have to work to make sure that the heat has as little effect as possible on performance”
