Weather continues to plague Marquez in testing
Wet conditions continued to trouble MotoGP rookie Marc Marquez on the first day of the three day test in Sepang. Marc was delayed going out due to a wet track and then managed only a few exits before more rain arrived. In total he completed 26 laps with a fastest time of 2’03.650.
MARC MÁRQUEZ – 2’03.650
“At the moment the weather is definitely not our friend! This morning the circuit was wet and we waited until 11:00 to go out on track. After only 4 exits it began to rain again and the day was over for us. The grip level was very low and at the beginning it was quite difficult to find any grip at all. However, I am happy because I have been able to improve my lap time each time I went out, even though I remained on the same tyres. Let’s hope that the weather will be kinder tomorrow and it won’t rain!”
