Rain was nowhere to be seen as the second day of running in Misano commenced, both sides of the Repsol Honda Team garage completing plenty of laps even before the lunch break. Both riders used the day to try out a number of components for the future of the RC213V as well as work on plans for the closing races of 2021.

Pol Espargaro was yet again one of the main protagonists of the test, spending the majority of the morning session lapping in and among the top five. It was a busy day as Espargaro split his time between various bikes to further his understanding of the current RC213V as well as helping Honda HRC with potential future developments. His best time of the day came on lap 33 of 37 in the afternoon, the 1’31.926 placing him sixth on the final day of running.

Marc Marquez had another busy day in Misano as he completed yet more laps around the Italian track. One of the last riders out on track on Wednesday, Marquez was determined to make the most of all the track time available to understand what he and Honda HRC need in the coming months. Ending Wednesday with a best time of 1’32.151, Marquez closes out the day as the tenth quickest rider and just over half a second off Aleix Espargaro’s fastest lap.

The Repsol Honda Team will now pack and prepare for the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas in Austin, Texas on Sunday, October 03.

1'31.926 Sixth

“It has been another good day overall. We worked on many things today and like always there were many good points and a few not so good points. But in the end I think we have been able to find the strong parts of the bike and understand the way to go for the end of the year. Honda HRC have done a good job with what they’ve brought here and what we have been able to do, it has been a good two days.”

Marc Marquez

1’32.151 Tenth

“Today I worked both for the future and then in the afternoon we worked more with the current bike because we are still trying frames and concepts. We are happy, sure everyone went fast in this test because the conditions are good, but we did interesting things over these two days. The most important thing is that we were able to work for the future. I want to thank my team and Honda HRC for their hard work over these two days.”
