(cafetheology.org) – In the first two MotoGP trainings in Misano, Marc Marquez made the pace over long stretches. In the morning, the Honda driver was able to take the lead with difficult tenths of a second. It had rained over night. Correspondingly low was the grip and it came to some strokes. Marquez remained at first. The Spaniard caught him in the afternoon. Ten minutes before the end of the second training session, which the world champion suggested at the time, the front wheel collapsed in turn 16 and he went to the ground. There was still enough time, so that Marquez could go back on the track on his second bike. There was no increase, however, and the 24-year-old was still pushed to the fifth place. "We've been working well and we've started with the base we tested, and it worked very well," Marquez resumes his training day in Misano, explaining "My pace was good right from the start, we tried a few other things in the afternoon, and I lost some confidence, then I was struggling, but in the last run the feedback was better." Pedrosa wants to work on his third sectorA Saturday he wants to focus on the tire selection, especially the rear tire. "I only tried the tire with the standard carcass, I think it works best for me, but maybe I'll try it tomorrow the alternative, because Dani (Pedrosa, RN) went today. "The team colleague was also fast on Friday, proving once more that the course is in Misano. In the previous year, Pedrosa won a victory here. The Spaniard finished fourth in the first two training sessions. He had just a little more than a tenth of a second to the best time of Danilo Petrucci (Pramac-Ducati). "We still have to work on the third sector, but we're not fast enough," says the Honda driver. The reason for this was that he could not explain on Friday: "I've driven alone, maybe I should follow someone to understand it, I think it's on the opposite line, but that's just a guess." He wants to study the data carefully to see if it is a Honda problem or other drivers have to fight there.Marquez: "The Ducatis are everywhere fast"

For the further MotoGP weekend, Pedrosa hopes above all to better conditions. "The track did not have the best grip, maybe because of the rain yesterday, and the grip was better in the test," notes the 31-year-old. "This makes the choice of the tire more difficult, and we will have to see how the track is developing, but the grip was better in the afternoon, but we still lack a little more understanding and feeling, especially for the rear tire." Compared to the test two weeks ago is now clearly more difficult to understand which tire is the best, Pedrosa continues. Marquez: "In the test, the grip was significantly better and it was easier to drive, so today it was much harder, so we were almost a second slower than the test "But I am sure this will improve." Ducati's competition is always a match for the world champion, even if he emphasizes: "We have to stop talking about the route to Ducati or not, because the Ducati is working well, and when I was in Austria and Silverstone behind Dovi (Andrea Dovizioso), I could not find a weak point, they have a very good balance and are strong everywhere, even their test driver Pirro is fast "In fact, Ducati Petrucci and Dovizioso, as well as Michele Pirro and Jorge Lorenzo, placed four riders in the top eight on Friday. But Marquez knows his strength and is fighting hard:" It looks as if their motorcycle well, but also our bike works well. Therefore, I think we are on a good level to fight against them. "Marquez is currently in the World Cup nine points behind Dovizioso.
