"I didn’t expected this lap time, but today I have been able to explore to the maximum of the new soft tire," explained Marquez afterward. "Immediately I noticed that I had the complete feeling I needed." Regarding his secret to be able to go so fast on one single lap, Marquez said with a smile, "Well, sometimes you close your eyes and just wait to see if you will complete the whole lap, no?" As far as tomorrow’s race, he said that although there are other riders in the front of the grid, the ones who worry him most are Lorenzo, Rossi and Pedrosa. "On one single lap I was very fast, but the racing pace between us is very similar," said Marquez. "It won’t be an easy race tomorrow."
