Land Mans – It was another somewhat complicated day for Marc Marquezeven if, in the end, he is always the first Honda rider on the deployment. Even if for a little while.
“In the fp3 I was fast: sure, I was following Quartararobut the speed was there. But in fp4, after the fall, I lost some confidenceI have never found the same feelings of the morning. I have a good pace, but not enough to win or to fight for the podium. Unfortunately, in the fall, I have not alone lost feelingbut also strength in the arm and shoulder. For this I had to try to conserve energy for the race “.
“It is a difficult situation: When you try to be as fast as the fastest people here and fall or struggle, you have to admit your limits. The target? I might as well finish ninth or tenth: is not beautifulbut the situation now it’s this one. Honda is working hard, but in the narrower paths we struggle. We suffer a lot under braking, we are trying to understand how to solve the problem, what is the direction to take. But I also have to take a step forward. Today we used two bikes with different settings, but I can’t make the most of the new tires ”.
