Marc Marquez admits that he is not delighted with how he is riding his Honda bike at COTA.

Why it matters: The Repsol Honda Team rider has been the quickest in two opening practices of the Americas GP.


  • Marquez has not felt comfortable on the bike.
  • The Spaniard reveals that he loses a lot of time in the first sector.

What he had to say:

  • “It’s true that I’m happy because of the result, but not because of the performance and the feeling,” Marquez told
  • “The feeling is not the best one, it’s true that one of my strong points was sector one in the past. Now I’m losing a lot there, especially in Turns 3, 4, 5. I cannot change direction – I’m in delay for many laps.”
