081.21 LCR Honda CASTROL Press Release

 ÁLEX MÁRQUEZ ENCOURAGED BY PACE AT VALENCIA12 November 2021 | Valencia GP PracticeÁlex Márquez remained upbeat as mixed weather conditions complicated matters for the MotoGP class on the opening day of free practice for the season-ending Valencia GP. Fresh from his superb display in Portugal, the LCR Honda CASTROL rider again demonstrated potential on the RC213v despite ending Friday’s sessions in 14th position overall.
With an unexpected deluge of heavy rain hitting FP1, Álex and his team took the chance to try out some wet settings in a low-key session. But with the track drying out for FP2, the Spaniard showed the kind of pace he produced at Portimao to maintain a top-10 position, but was unfortunate to drop out in the closing stages as his final flying lap was chalked off for track limits.Álex Márquez – 14th
“It was a surprise for the whole team this morning that we had heavy rain, so we just took it quite easy, tried a few things that we had on plan for wet conditions and didn’t take too many risks as we knew that this afternoon and tomorrow would be dry. This afternoon in the dry I was feeling really good from the beginning and was in the top seven or eight all the time as we tried something new on the bike that worked well. Unfortunately, in the last time attack I touched the green, so track limits and my flying lap that was P8 or P9 disappeared, but that’s how it is. Tomorrow we need to be focused because we had good rhythm and pace, we just need to adjust a few details.”
