Marc Marquez Embraces New Thumb Brake Technique at Jerez Test: A Game Changer for Ducati’s Acceleration Control



Marc Marquez's insights following the evaluation of a novel component during the Jerez trials

Marc Marquez experimented with a thumb brake, which Ducati considers crucial during the "acceleration phase"

Having finished the bulk of his adjustments to the Ducati, Marc Marquez shifted his focus to fine-tuning and customizing the configuration of the GP23 at Monday's MotoGP test in Jerez.

This involved experimenting with a thumb brake located on the left handlebar, which team principal Davide Tardozzi highlighted as 'crucial for maneuvering the Ducati'.

"Tardozzi mentioned to that Marc hasn't utilized the rear thumb brake, which they consider crucial for operating the Ducati, particularly during the acceleration stage to manage the motorcycle."

"We've supplied Marc with sufficient information to grasp the reasons and methods for improving his motorbike's acceleration performance."

Today in Jerez, Marc Marquez experimented with using a rear thumb brake. Speaking to Sky Sport MotoGP from Italy, Davide Tardozzi highlighted the advantages of the thumb brake for Ducati, particularly during the acceleration stage 📈📸 Sky Sport MotoGP #MotoGP #JerezTest— Crash MotoGP (@crash_motogp) April 29, 2024

After securing his first Ducati Grand Prix podium on Sunday, where he contended with world champion Francesco Bagnaia for the win in the final laps, Marquez was requested to test several items for Ducati.

Having participated in four Grand Prix weekends, Marquez now believes his input on modifications to the motorcycle is significantly more decisive, leaning towards clear affirmatives or negatives, as opposed to the uncertain responses he had during the preseason sessions in Sepang and Qatar.

"Today turned out to be a positive day. It marked a significant change from the experiences during the tests in Malaysia and Qatar, where I was still figuring out how to handle this motorcycle," Marquez explained.

"Today, I felt assured from the very first run. I noticed my lap time was solid right off the bat, and then I maintained the rhythm while providing very accurate feedback. I could sense all the adjustments we made to the bike, which is crucial for what lies ahead."

"In the earlier phase, I was still adjusting to the bike, but at this point, we're experimenting and I've become quite savvy regarding my requirements. We're">king incremental progress, consistently gaining new insights."

"I'm beginning to adjust the motorcycle to better suit my riding preferences and finding a balance. However, I'm aware there will be certain circuits where I'll face more challenges, while others will present us with great opportunities."

Marquez clocked in with the fifth quickest lap during the test, trailing the top time set by VR46's Fabio di Giannantonio by only 0.232 seconds.
