Marc Marquez tests 2013 Honda in Sepang

Improved weather conditions at the Sepang track in Malaysia today enabled Marc Marquez to enjoy his most productive day on board Honda’s RC213V 1000cc MotoGP machine to date. The reigning Moto2 world champion completed a 60-lap stint, which was more than the combined laps he’d managed in three previous weather-hit days on track in Valencia and Sepang.

Adjusting to what ?

It looks like he was attuned to the weight, Bridgestone,power and CF brakes from his first outing on the GP bike. After Stoner's retirement I have something to look forward to 5 months down the track. Over rated not. Great expectations will also not weigh on this one's mind and distract him. He just loves winning like his predecessor.

PROBLEM

 Mark Maquez is a brilliant rider but theirs a big hurdle he will have to overcome next year and he is called Dani Pedrosa. Every one is on about Casey Stoner but Danni was certainly the better rider last season. I can see Marquez will crash a lot next season trying to stay with Danni. The only rider i can see beating Danni next year is Lorenzo and even for him that will be difficult

Marquez

is going to be very quick from the first GP, with his comittment and mind-set, he could well be a problem to the top three riders, from the word go, if he can use some of that talent to finish a race, and not do a repeat of when he entered Moto2, but either way, he's going to be the most exciting prospect for next year.

eddl, Who's time are you comparing Marc's too, as I thought he was just testing with Alvaro, who is genrally 1 second back from pole.

@eddi

if Honda are like the other manufactures then I bet they turned the engine down when REA raced it to save it for stoner return or REA just wasn't fast enough lol

Couln't find the final figure but by Mugello Casey had only used 2 engines so had plenty spare. But I doubt Rea had one of  the newer spec engines Honda brought out after that and Casey kept the old frame.  The bike that Marquez has been riding is the brought forward 2013 bike Dani was riding at the end of the season not the 2012 bike Rea probably  rode.
