Round fourteen of the 2015 MotoGP World Championship got underway today at the Aragon GP with Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa and Marc Marquez finishing 4th and 5th respectively.
Dani and Marc took their time to reacquaint themselves with the 5km circuit, as unlike many other riders, they had not had the benefit of testing here. Dani experienced some setup and brake issues which limited his track time but he managed to steadily progress throughout the day. Marc was able to test a new swing arm and also improved his time from FP1 to FP2.
Towards the end of the afternoon session, the riders battled against each other in a brief time trial, with just hundredths of a second separating the top four. However, Lorenzo, Rossi and Smith chose to exit on a fresh medium rear tyre at the end of the session, but Dani and Marc remained on their used hard tyres. Dani finished the day 4th in the combined times with his lap of 1’48.358 (lap 6/17) and Marc just 0.043s behind him with his time of 1’48.401 (lap 10/19).
