Three days of testing have come to an end for the Repsol Honda Team in Malaysia

The final day of testing in the Sepang heat had temptingly tight times for fans and more valuable data for drivers and engineers. Defending MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez maximized his time on the track without overworking his shoulder, doing 47 laps on the final day of testing in Malaysia. Every day Marc was able to test not only the 2020 motorcycle, but also his shoulder. The Honda rider was pleased with the progress made in both areas. The last day ended a little early when Marc fell at the last corner and further injuries were avoided. In a best time of 1’58.772, the eight-time world champion finished within half a second ahead of Fabio Quartararo, who led the test. Sunday was another day of steady and constant progress for rookie Alex Marquez, who improved his best lap time during the day. Alex cuts off his previous best time by more than half a second, leaves the Sepang test with a best time of 1,59,042 and displaces Brad Binder to finish the test as the best MotoGP rookie. The test was extremely positive for Alex and his Repsol Honda team and at the beginning of the three days they achieved everything they set out to do. Finishing the day within two tenths of his teammate and 0.693 seconds behind the fastest driver on the test is proof of the work done at Sepang. During the three days of testing, the Repsol Honda Team drove a total of 284 laps, with Alex leading the way thanks to his 153 laps over the three days. Cal Crutchlow finished the test as the fastest Honda and posted the second fastest time on his LCR Honda on day three of the race. Teams and drivers will take a short break before they start their last three days of testing in Qatar from February 22nd to 24th. For both riders, this means they can rest and make their final preparations to be in the best shape on round one of the 2020 MotoGP World Championship.
