Pedrosa picks up the pace
It was a good test for the Repsol Honda duo of Marquez and Dani Pedrosa, with the 31-year-old Spaniard almost matching his team-mate to finish 0.2 behind him and third on the overall times, despite missing out on much of Thursday with an infection.
“It’s been a positive test, especially as it isn’t one of my favourite tracks. I was riding quite well and I think we improved day by day. We focused again on electronics and on the setup of the bike, and the only thing we missed was a long run, as we ran out of time. All in all, we can say we’re heading in the right direction, even if we still have work to do.”
