Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo dominated the first MotoGP practice session at Indy this morning, the M1 rider cutting consistently fast laps and looking very fluid while doing so.
Marc Marquez, though, looked like he had to work very hard to make his fast laps. The Honda needed to be gathered back up both exiting and entering corners this morning at Indy.
Marquez didn’t see it as a big problem, suggesting the track will get faster and the Honda will adapt.
“Even though the track is more slippery than other circuits,” he said after the first session, “it’s consistent and already improved from the beginning to the end of this session, so it will get better and better as more rubber is laid down and the times will get faster.”
