Marc Marquez followed a path laid down by Max Verstappen last year, tearing his Honda RC213V down the Hahnenkamm in Austria.
In typical Marquez style, there was no holding back: “It was really difficult to keep the bike under control, but I’m young and it’s good fun to try some crazy things!
“We enjoyed it, and we could see after a few runs everything that was possible. The piste was really well prepared. I could really get going and I had a great feeling out there. The grip was unbelievable, even for a wheelie!”
