Will Marquez perform with last year’s engine?

Marc Marquez has won only seven races this year, but has resigned three times or finished without points. The Spaniard therefore started this season much worse than last year, in which he stepped on the highest podium in the first ten races.

A Honda racer can’t make friends with this year’s Honda motorcycle, so he started testing last year’s engine frame last year at a post-race test in Barcelona, ​​with this year’s swingarm, engine and exhaust. Although testing severely limited the rains, Marquez drove 20 laps, so much so that he got first impressions and these were supposed to be positive.

“We didn’t have much luck with the weather today, as it started to rain soon after the tests started and we were only able to drive three times,” Marquez said. “It’s important that we were able to test last year’s chassis with this year’s swingarm and engine, which gave us a good feeling. We need to confirm this with telemetry data, as there was no significant progress and we couldn’t drive many laps, but first impressions were good. The rain interrupted our work, but we will see if we can continue in this direction, because I felt much better on the bike, ”explained Marquez, who is now 69 points behind the leader Valentino Rossi in the overall standings and was at today's testing the fourth fastest.
