The Repsol Honda Team enjoyed a strong start today at Motorland Aragón, as Dani Pedrosa ended the opening day at the top of the time sheets with a best time of 1’48.429, and teammate Marc Marquez was just 0.065 seconds behind in second place. The impressive performance from Honda riders was completed by Cal Crutchlow’s close third place.
After struggling to find a good feeling with the track grip and ending the first session in 11th place, Dani significantly improved his speed in the FP2 session, lapping a second and a half faster. He worked with both the medium and hard rear tyre specs and is looking forward to further improving his feeling tomorrow.
Marquez showed top form right from the morning session, setting the quickest time and ending FP1 as the only rider to lap under the 1’49 barrier. He spent the whole FP2 session on the hard Michelin rear tyre, and in his last exit he recorded his best lap on a new hard rear.
