03 Aug Pedrosa fastest on day one at Brno with Marquez 10th on used tyres
Dani Pedrosa and Marc Marquez got back to business today at Brno, both riders starting the Czech weekend on the right foot.
After ending FP1 seventh fastest, Dani finished the day on top of the standings as the only rider able to lap under the 1’56 barrier when he put a soft rear tyre on at the end of FP2. The Spaniard is happy to have also been fast on hard tyres during the entire session.
Marc set the third fastest time in the morning and then, following his usual path of work, spent all FP2 on the same set of hard Michelin tyres, focusing on his race pace and closing the day in tenth place, just 0.659 down from his teammate.
