It’s been a positive first day for the Repsol Honda Team in Indianapolis with the track steadily improving throughout the day as more rubber was laid down, cleaning the circuit and increasing the grip.
This afternoon, Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez was involved in a final exit time trial against Jorge Lorenzo, with the riders recording identical times. Then in the final minutes, Lorenzo was able to squeeze in one extra fast lap, to pip Marc to the post by just 0.003 seconds. Marc finished the day in second position in the combined times with his lap of 1’32.863 (lap 16/19). Teammate Dani Pedrosa also had a positive first day, finishing seventh in the combined times with his time of 1’33.377 (lap 18/10). It’s an incredibly close field in Indianapolis with just 0.377 seconds separating third position to tenth.
FP3 will commence tomorrow morning at 09h55 local time.
