Double MotoGP champion Marc Marquez was restricted to trying some new brake and calliper parts during a wet second day of testing at Valencia.

The Repsol Honda star had returned to the scene of his record 13th victory for a brief MotoGP ride alongside younger brother Alex on Monday, before planning to start serious 2015 preparations on day two.

But the weather meant little testing could be achieved and Marquez rode for 17 laps on the 2014 RC213V, finishing with the eighth fastest time out of the ten riders that took to the track.

"Today was a day in which we couldn't do too much," he confirmed. "Nevertheless, we managed to test a couple of things in the wet which worked well for us. We only put in a few laps, but at least we could make a little progress with our workload. The weather forecast for tomorrow is for better than today, so let's hope we can try the new bike!"

Team-mate Dani Pedrosa, who tested the new 2015 prototype on Monday, chose not to go out on track.
