Alberto Puig was satisfied with the course of the first testing for the 2024 season. The team tested a number of innovations, while highlighting the weight reduction of the motorcycle as an important improvement.

After the departure of Marc Marquez and many changes within the team, Puig marked today as the start of a completely new chapter. Joan Mir, who took over the role of leading rider after Marquez's departure, and team newcomer Luca Marini tested the new Honda motorcycle prototype for the upcoming season.

"Today is a positive day behind us. We have tried many innovations, and we are satisfied with most of them. We still have a lot of work ahead of us, because last season we were far from the best," he said in an interview with DAZN.

According to him, the new motorcycle should offer better grip than its predecessor. He singled out weight loss as the biggest improvement.

"The new motorcycle is lighter than last year's. This is a very important factor, as weight has a great influence on the behavior of the motorcycle, especially when braking and changing direction. Also, if you don't touch anything on the motorcycle and just reduce the weight, it will immediately be better."

"We are lagging behind the most in aerodynamics. We have been paying a lot of attention to this recently. Today we tested many innovations, but we are still far from Ducati."

He said about Luca Marini:

"He comes from Ducati, he has been on the best bike for the past three seasons. He will surely be able to give us a lot of useful information. Marc was with us all the time and he didn't have such an opportunity."
