Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa and Marc Marquez are hoping for some dry track time on the final day at Jerez after Day 2 in Jerez didn’t run as smooth as the pair would have liked. After a wet Day 1, the sun came out towards the middle of the second day allowing riders to get their first dry laps in at the Spanish circuit. Times from Day 2 at Jerez can be seen here.
Pedrosa, who has topped both official tests so far could only manage the 4th fastest time today behind the Yamahas of Rossi, Lorenzo and Crutchlow.
“We managed 36 laps and improved quite a lot from the beginning to the end but we can still improve a lot further. At first I found myself riding the Moto2 lines but gradually I learnt and began taking different lines which suit the MotoGP machine better. We worked on the rear grip and struggled to improve, maybe we spent too much time in this area. However, we fixed some problems and now we have some new issues to deal with that we must work on tomorrow”
Testing continues tomorrow.
