Development work continues for Repsol Honda Team on day 2 of Malaysia test

160203_03

Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa took to the track this morning for the second day of testing at Sepang International Circuit, where Marc was quickly able to knock almost one and half seconds off his best lap from the opening day. Just an hour into the session, all action stopped following a massive crash by Loris Baz (who escaped unhurt), prompting a red flag that remained in place for over an hour.

When the track reopened, the riders were only allowed to use the harder of two available tyres and, due to safety concerns, Michelin imposed a higher minimum air pressure. Marc and Dani, who today used the new evolution of the 2016 RC213V engine, worked with their engineers on the electronics and on chassis setup. Marquez completed a total of 52 laps, with his fastest time of 2’00.843 coming on lap 5, while Dani managed a best time of 2’01.475 on lap 4 of 36.

Toward the end of the day, Dani suffered a crash in turn 5 during an out-lap; thankfully, he escaped unharmed, although the fall prevented him from testing a new spec front tyre, which he will instead try tomorrow.

The weather remained throughout the day, with maximum air and track temperatures of 33° C and 59°, respectively. The three-day test will conclude tomorrow.
