An approach that has worked well so far,” said Marquez. “I know that Honda is working at 100% and in Montmelo’ we will do our best to get another good result. On Monday, then we will see if we can find that half a tenth that would help us a lot as has happened this past year.” After the race there will be some tests on the Spanish track.
