It was a positive start to the weekend for the Repsol Honda Team at Aragon in wet/mixed conditions, with Dani Pedrosa setting the fastest time of the day in 1’59.858”, the only rider under the 2 minute barrier.

Marc Marquez was also very fast through both sessions to ultimately end fourth overall, having chosen to not take advantage of the session’s final minutes in changing conditions.

With the entire day affected by an intermittent drizzle, FP1 had also been run on rain tyres, with Marc and Dani first and second, respectively.

With weather forecast to improve for the weekend, Marc and Dani look forward to getting some dry track time tomorrow in order to best prepare for the race, which should also be run in dry conditions.

Dani Pedrosa

1st 1'59.858

“I’m happy with this day, even if it was obviously a bit strange. Both times when we were preparing to go on track, it started to rain and we had to change setup and tyres. As it happened, we never had the opportunity to fit the slicks and didn’t do a lot of laps in the rain either because the track was wet, though not too much. This afternoon in particular, the last part of the track was almost dry, the long corner and the straight, and the tyres warmed up quite a lot. Tomorrow we’ll see which conditions we’ll have and what feeling we’ll be able to find.”

Marc Marquez

4th 2'00.459

“Today was good, even if it was a particular one. In these kinds of conditions, it’s not possible to understand too much. The track was wet in the morning, whereas it dried quite a lot in the afternoon, toward the end of FP2. We decided not to take risks in the changing conditions and remained in the garage in the last minutes. Today it was actually good to work to reach a good feeling with the bike, but at the same time it was impossible to gather much information. Anyway, I felt good with the bike from the first lap. I was fast, so at the moment everything looks under control. Apparently it should be dry tomorrow and Sunday, so we’ll keep pushing and see where we are in dry conditions.”
