Marc Marquez ends 6th, at MotoGP Qualifying Nr. 2 at Mugello 03.06.2017
“It was my fault because I start the lap too close to Johann and immediately at the third or fourth corner I was behind him. I didn’t make the best strategy.”
“The positive thing is that in the ideal time we are second. That is not so bad. On the race pace it looks like we are good but we need to try to work with the wear of the front tyre. The rear drops but for me the biggest problem is the front tyre.”
Marquez had complained of a similar issue on Friday.
“Now it’s in a different way. You feel that the casing is there and I like it on the braking point but then after a few laps the [hard] compound is too soft for this temperature. ”
“We use the same tyre in the morning with 35 degrees on the track and in the afternoon it is close to 50. For everybody it is the same and I need to change a bit the riding style to try to adapt to the front tyre.”
“It’s true that on the right side I feel much better but on the left side we need to be more careful. With the other tyre [the hard] I need to be careful everywhere but it’s more constant.”
“I need to check well which one works better and it depends on the temperature because maybe the medium one can work well if the temperature drop.”
