Rain was nowhere to be seen as the second day of running in Misano commenced, both sides of the Repsol Honda Team garage completing plenty of laps even before the lunch break. Both riders used the day to try out a number of components for the future of the RC213V as well as work on plans for the closing races of 2021.
Marc Marquez had another busy day in Misano as he completed yet more laps around the Italian track. One of the last riders out on track on Wednesday, Marquez was determined to make the most of all the track time available to understand what he and Honda HRC need in the coming months. Ending Wednesday with a best time of 1’32.151, Marquez closes out the day as the tenth quickest rider and just over half a second off Aleix Espargaro’s fastest lap.
The Repsol Honda Team will now pack and prepare for the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas in Austin, Texas on Sunday, October 03.
Marc Márquez: “Today I worked both for the future and then in the afternoon we worked more with the current bike because we are still trying frames and concepts. We are happy, sure everyone went fast in this test because the conditions are good, but we did interesting things over these two days. The most important thing is that we were able to work for the future. I want to thank my team and Honda HRC for their hard work over these two days.”
