MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez
At just 25 years of age, Marc Marquez is already making his claim as the The season was an important one for Marc, as it was then that he met Emilio Alzamora, Marc's debut in the Motorcycle Road Racing World Championship .. He therefore decided to swap motorcycles quite early and entered. Only Marc Márquez is doing it on a hp MotoGP bike, at km/h, . when the riders are given the opportunity to practice a bike swap, the. Marc Marquez earned his ninth triumph in a row at the Sachsenring - a winning streak which makes him King of the Ring.
But on the other hand, the longer he can hold the bike up without crashing, the slower the bike goes. This improves the outcome whatever happens. If he saves the crash, he never hits the gravel and can ride away relatively unhurt. If he can't save the crash, the bike will have scrubbed off a certain amount of speed, reducing the likelihood of injury once he does hit the gravel. You see in FP1. In the third lap, This maybe give to you a special feeling. Six years ago, elbow sliders were virtually unheard of, now it's almost impossible to buy a leather suit which does not have them fitted.
Red machine A thousand words and a couple of Twitter videos later, I have illustrated my own point. He finished behind Jorge Lorenzo, who took his first pole position on a Ducati, extending his control of proceedings in Barcelona, and continuing his form from Mugello, where he won the last race. It was almost a foregone conclusion that Lorenzo would take pole. The Ducati Factory rider had ended the first day as fastest, with a time that would have been good enough for fourth on the grid.
So confident was he that his Friday time was good enough to ensure passage directly to Q2 that he didn't even bother chasing a quick time in FP3.
He did the entire session on a used set of soft tires, ending with a lap of 1' The only rider to go faster on used tires was Andrea Iannone, who was a tenth quicker on tires with 12 laps on them. In FP4, the final session of free practice, Jorge Lorenzo second, and only because Andrea Iannone put on a fresh set of tires at the end of that session.
Five of Lorenzo's ten laps in FP4 were 1'39s, more than double what anyone else was capable of.
Lorenzo has the pace, every rider we spoke to warned us. And if he gets his customary start on Sunday, the rest would not see him for dust. Getting pole was the cherry on the top for Jorge Lorenzo, extending a remarkable run of front row starts.
The last time Lorenzo lined up at Barcelona anywhere else than the front row was back inhis second season in s. His absence from the grid in after a horrific crash during practice is the only blemish on this sequence, but for the past fourteen races he has contested at the Circuit de Catalunya, he has started from the front row. Strong rhythm The pole was good, but his race pace was more important, he said. In Mugello I felt great, and here in a different track I feel probably even better than in the test one month ago.
Always with a good pace and feeling really comfortable with all the tires and everything. I just needed the real speed, the last piece to give me the necessary energy to keep for longer this speed and this is what happened in Mugello. Even if not everybody believes that," Lorenzo added, taking an oblique shot at Ducati senior management once again.
The Italian was confident after finding an improvement during the weekend, giving him a better feeling with the bike than he had during the test three weeks ago. We started immediately with a good speed in the first practice. That is very important to be able to work on the details, especially at this kind of track when you have a new asphalt and the grip is very strange. The slide is difficult to manage, especially on maximum angle, when the tyre drops on entry. Everyone is struggling on that.
But at the end we improve a little bit practice by practice and we arrive at free practice 4 with a good pace. But like last year I expect a strange race — maybe not the same but similar because the consumption of the tyre is quite high. Everyone has to manage all the situation.

There were a lot of crashes so everyone will be smooth in the race with the front and the rear. It will be difficult for everybody to manage the situation but we arrive to the race with good confidence. What had pleased the Spaniard was that he had been competitive in the afternoons, when track temperatures were much higher than the morning, and the grip on the track had been less.
So I think it was good.
I'm quite confident, and let's see. We did a good job this weekend in FP2 and FP4. Actually on the bike we just have to hope to have a good front tire and to push from the beginning. There are many riders who are very strong and for sure fighting there.
I'm convinced that we can do it.
Looking at the Movistar Yamaha's lap times during the race, they would follow a familiar pattern. But by then, it was too late for him: He never regained the ground he lost in those early laps.
So I think it was important to know that, and let's see, let's see if with that we can solve the problem of the first laps. This had previously been a problem for Dani Pedrosa.
