Alex Rins said after the first race of the 2023 MotoGP season in Portugal that he would like some innovations from the Honda factory in Argentina. His wishes were granted, as the LCR Honda race will be able to use the latest Honda chassis, which was used by Marc Marquez with Portimao. "Because Marc won't be here, Honda is letting me use his so I'll have new parts available this weekend," explained Rins. "Otherwise, I won't have much time to test the new things, because unfortunately the weather forecast is not the best. It will be very important to plan Friday's work well. There will be one engine like the one I had in Portugal and one with a new chassis. I will change during training motorcycle, because on Friday due to the small differences between the racers, I can guarantee a direct placement in the Q2 part of the qualifications."

Alex Rins took the points at the Portuguese Grand Prix but said at the end of the race weekend that he wanted something new on the bike, as he was very annoyed by the difficult overtaking on the current Honda bike. "the hardest part is the overtaking," he explained. "I'm angry, because apart from the start I couldn't overtake any racer. It was a real crash. When Fabio overtook me, I was able to follow him, but I had a lot of problems. In the last part of the race I was losing grip on the front tire. I gave everything from myself and riding at the limit of the engine. The position reminds me of the season at Suzuki where I was losing on the straights and then made up for it in the corners. I would be very happy if Honda offered me something new in Argentina. The track might be more for us suited, but there are also long straights," he added

"The most challenging thing was the responsiveness of the power unit, the connection between adding gas and developing power and transferring only that to the rear wheel. We were looking for different settings throughout the testing, but we couldn't find one that suited me." Rins finished the test in 20th place, 1.1 seconds off the fastest time, but says that in search of better results he will not try to convert the Honda to Suzuki's GSX-RR, which he has raced all before
