Repsol Honda Team continue momentum in Jerez test

Today the Repsol Honda Team were back on track in Jerez after yesterday's fantastic 1-2 at the GP of Spain.

Marc solved some issues he had in the front with his bike from the weekend, and worked on some setup changes, again finding some improvement. He then spent some time on the electronics with different mappings and collected data working with a different suspension setup. He finished the day on top of the time sheets, completing a total of 63 laps with a fastest time of 1'38.824, one tenth faster than his qualifying time (1'38.971) on lap 27.

Dani was 4th fastest for the day with a time of 1'38.979, just 0.155 from Marc, taken on lap 4 of 56. He also worked on the Öhlins suspension, electronics and with chassis settings ahead of next week's GP of France in Le Mans.

"Today was a very positive day of testing for us. We started with the base from yesterday, to focus on some problems we had in the race and we managed to find solutions quickly. We tried some new settings with the front forks, rear suspension and electronics. Some things went better than others, but the important thing is that we were consistent, which is what matters in MotoGP. We hope that what we did today helps us over the next few races"

"In general today was a positive day. We worked on various aspects of the setup in order to find a bit more rear grip and stability exiting the corners. Some things went well and others could still be improved. We also tried out some things with the suspension and the electronics, but didn't have any major new parts to work with. This is all good preparation for the next round of the World Championship"
