Marquez excited for new Austin challenge

"Still I don't have that feeling, like in Moto2, where we would try something and immediately from the first lap I would know the direction of the bike and what was the problem.

"Here when I try something I'm not decided and this we need to improve.

"Also I need to be more constant with used tyres. Try to get a little more feeling in the entry of the corner, but the exit of the corner, one of the most important areas in this category, I feel good."

Marquez is also pleased with his physical condition.

"At the last test I was quite tired but this time I feel very good. Before Austin I will continue training in the same way. With physical condition it is better to have more than you need."

Asked what his training entails, Marquez replied; "Some mountain bike, gym work, running, skiing, many things. Also some motocross, because you need to enjoy training."

The Austin test, held at the same circuit that will host round two of the 2013 world championship, will take place from March 12-14.
