The Repsol Honda Team started their final test of 2018 today, before the mandatory winter break. The first day of the two-day session, held at Jerez de la Frontera (Spain), was blessed by perfect weather conditions. Only in the morning were the asphalt and air temperatures a bit chilly, prompting 2018 World Champion Marc Marquez and teammate Jorge Lorenzo to wait until noon before taking to the track.
Marc stopped one and a half hours before the official end of the session at 5:30 p.m. and was fifth-fastest on the day with a best time of 1’38.517”, recorded on lap 28 of 55. Jorge was a close seventh after completing 56 laps, with a best time of 1’38.749”.
The test will end tomorrow.
