All eyes were on him. And in the end, he didn’t disappoint. Marc Marquez is back in a race weekend ad Aragon and at the end of the two free practice sessions he is already among the top ten on his Hondawho was waiting so long for the return of the Spaniard.
Marquez in the top ten in free practice
The eight-time world champion was not on the track with his colleagues from the MotoGP for almost four months, since that was his last Grand Prix d’Italia in Mugello on 29 May. From there, Honda has never seen itself higher again, with Marquez eighth on Friday in Aragon.
You couldn’t think of a better result, but for sure it could have been much worse to the Spanish. Good times on the flying lap and if he hadn’t made a mistake in the last attempt it would also have been much closer to the former of the combined classification of free practice.
The first sensations of the Spaniard
A good return to the track, also according to Marquez himself: “I’m very happy to be back in MotoGP. In the morning I didn’t ride well and I was quite stiff on the bike – his words -. And then in the afternoon I was more relaxedI was not tired and we were able to work better ”.
Marc then commented on themistake in the ending: “On the last lap with the soft I was doing well, but I had a small problem at the last corner – he specified -. But if you make mistakes it means you are pushing. There are some things to work on, but we’re on the right path“.
Marc’s next goals
After finishing on Friday in Aragon in the top ten, now for sure Marquez will want to stay there even after the third free practice session to be able to start in the first four rows of the deployment. On the flying lap he can be very competitive and maybe already fight for the pole position.
The unknown still remains competition. In Aragon it will be long and difficult with 23 turns on a counter-clockwise track, which perhaps might not make Marquez suffer that much in his right arm. An important test considering the races in succession in the coming days between Japan and Thailand.CopyAMP code.
