It’s been a busy first day for Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa under wonderful weather conditions in Tuscany, with the top fourteen riders within a second.

Both riders spent the day working on electronics with Marc confirming his choice of the new swing arm. He finished the day second fastest with his time of 1’47.643 on lap 11 of 16 in this afternoon’s FP2. Dani completed a long run this morning of 14 laps to test the fitness of his recently operated upon right arm, which was positive. He had a few issues with the electronics in the afternoon and finished 14th in the combined times with his lap of 1’48.435 recorded on lap 10 of 18.

Marc Marquez

2nd 1'47.643 [lap 11/16]

Overall, today went quite well. It was a Friday in which we tried several things, especially in terms of electronics to try and improve the engine character, and I'm happy because we have taken a step forward. I’m not yet completely comfortable, but I felt pretty good and it seems that the direction we have taken is the right one. Now we need to put in more laps, find our race pace and continue to evolve to be as close as possible to the fastest riders.

Dani Pedrosa

14th 1'48.435 [lap 10/18]

The first day did not go all that well, but I do not think that it is too significant; we’ll see if we can improve tomorrow. This afternoon we had a problem with the electronics on the bike that did not allow us to put in all the laps we had wanted to do, but we will try to fix this tonight and hope that tomorrow we can finish higher up in preparation for the race.
