Marc Marquez came out guns blazing in yesterday’s two practice sessions and he is highly tipped to win tomorrow’s race at Indianapolis, even by his rivals.
The MotoGP rookie will be looking for hat trick, after having won the last two rounds and also take his third victory on American soil and when he says that he felt immediately ‘comfortable’ that shows how much confidence he has in himself and his Honda.
“Today went pretty well,” said Marquez.
“After the break it was important to regain confidence on the bike.
The truth is that I felt comfortable almost immediately.
I tried to stay calm during the first few laps, as they are the most delicate and I’m happy with how the day went.
“The track improved a lot in terms of grip from session to session, so tomorrow we will likely see the times come down again.
I think we’re going in the right direction, so tomorrow we will likely see the times come down again.
I think we’re going in the right direction, so tomorrow we will continue as we have been doing so far.
”Dani Pedrosa may be another of the walking wounded, but despite having admitted ahead of the round that he was still not fit, he belied expectations after posting the second best time on Friday, but whether he’ll last for the entire race distance still remains to be seen.
“Today I had my first laps for three weeks,” Pedrosa said.
“Obviously it was less painful but I was a little stiff on the bike and wasn’t really moving quickly through the chicanes, or to control wheelies and so on.
After today I will have to see how I am feeling tomorrow morning, but I guess my muscles will be a little looser tomorrow.
