Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez ended the first day of the Grand prix of Argentina in the first place. Fellow HRC rider Cal Crutchlow was second, between him and Dani Pedrosa in third.

Though a few raindrops and a drop in temperature made track conditions even trickier in FP2, Marc was able to better his FP1 time of 1:40.781 by over a second, with his best lap of 1:39.395 putting him on top for the day.

“It was a good day for us. When we started this morning, the track was quite slippery and we struggled a bit but it was the same for every rider, and the asphalt steadily became cleaner. In the afternoon, the second session was a bit strange as conditions were kind of mixed, but all in all, we were able to do good work on the bike setup, getting a pretty clear idea about those conditions”, Marquez said.

“It was important to start the Argentinian Grand prix well, but now we’ll wait and see what conditions we have going forward, as there’s a good chance things will change a lot in the next two days. It’s possible that we’ll have a very different track on Sunday, which would require a different setup, so we must keep our focus and continue working hard to be ready for the race.”
