It was a positive start to the Aragon Grand Prix for the Repsol Honda Team, with Championship leader Marc Marquez topping Friday’s standings and teammate Dani Pedrosa managing to considerably improve from 18th in FP1 to seventh overall.

Fellow Honda rider Cal Crutchlow was fourth while rookie Franco Morbidelli finished just outside of the top-10, in eleventh to mark a very positive result for Honda.

The day was marked by sunny and hot conditions, which should continue over the weekend, with air temperature on race day possibly even increasing from today’s 30°C.

Marc Marquez

1st 1'47.382

“Today we worked quite well and improved a lot from morning to afternoon, especially with the rear tyre. It was our first day at the track this season and we had to adjust the setting of the bike and the electronics. We must also keep working in this way tomorrow. In the end of FP2 everyone put on a new rear tyre, even us. This was maybe the first Friday that we did that this year! It’s important for understanding the outcome of a few things we changed on the bike. Now we have less doubts, but also we want to reconfirm something tomorrow. Luckily the weather is fine, and actually very hot. Ducati has tested here so we don’t want to leave anything out in order to be at same level.”

Dani Pedrosa

7th 1'48.389

“Today we mainly concentrated on testing the tyres, suspension, and on getting the feeling with the track. Conditions were quite hot and apparently they’re going to stay that way during the weekend, so it’s important to try and get a good feeling for the race. We didn’t put fresh tyres on at the end of FP1, but we did it for the last run in the afternoon. We couldn’t improve our lap time as we wished with the soft tyre, so we need to look into this, as well as keep working on our race pace.”
