Marquez tops Barcelona post-race test

Marquez leads Sunday

After yesterday’s fantastic race, Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez and the other MotoGP riders were back on track today for the Official Post-Race Test.

Marc worked on electronics and mapping settings and tested a new Ohlin fork and the new front Bridgestone tire, confirming the tire felt safer and provided better feedback than the current one. This morning he tested the proposed new circuit layout which uses the tighter F1 corner at the end of the back straight as a possible safety change and agreed it would be better as riders are not so close to the wall..

Marc was fastest for the day with his lap of 1’41.184 (just 0.049 off his qualifying time from Saturday) on lap 45 of 46.
