Valencia MotoGP Test: Happy Marquez signs off on top

'We tried out different electronic configurations and various set-ups, and we are pretty satisfied with the results' - Marc Marquez
Marc Marquez concluded the MotoGP test in Valencia on top of the time sheets after a blistering lap fractionally outside his record pole time at the Spanish circuit.

The new MotoGP world champion's best lap of 1m 30.287s on the Repsol Honda was only 0.05s slower than he managed on his way to pole for the final race of the season in Valencia on Sunday.

A satisfied Marquez, who took the top spot from the hugely impressive Bradley Smith in second, said: “I am very happy with how the day went and thanks to all my team for their hard work.

“We continued our testing and today we focused on just the one bike: the prototype with which we felt best yesterday.

“We tried out different electronic configurations and various set-ups, and we are pretty satisfied with the results,” added the 20-year-old, who also headed Tuesday's times after taking a rest day on Monday.

“The most important thing is that we have gathered a lot of data during these two days, so that Honda will be able to work over the winter and give us some updates at the next test in Malaysia.”

With the winter testing ban now coming into effect, Marquez won't be back in action until the Sepang test in February.
