Not all happy faces at Honda

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

It might have been a suc­cess­ful test for Marc Mar­quez at Qatar, but not ev­ery­thing was rosy in the Rep­sol Honda garage, as team-mate Dani Pe­drosa con­tin­ues to drift in the dol­drums with his 2016 ma­chine.

Strug­gling to find any­thing pos­i­tive to say about their progress in the test, a terse Pe­drosa ad­mit­ted to MCN that they were nowhere near as pre­pared as the other side of the pit box.

ÒWE did­nõt find any progress. We did­nõt have many tyres left so we could­nõt do much test­ing on the fi­nal day and I fin­ished ear­lier than usual. Un­for­tu­nately the con­clu­sions are not en­tirely sat­is­fac­tory.

Òover the three days we have tried to test a lot of things, but there are still some ideas that we want to ap­ply the next time we are on track.

Òwith the data ob­tained in the last few tests, the tech­ni­cians in Ja­pan will work to try to make some changes ahead of the first Grand Prix at Qatar. Weõll see if they are favourable, and if we can get bet­ter per­for­mance for the race.ó
