Marquez and Pedrosa at Misano with the 2017 engine

After Sunday's victory, the rain put paid to Monday's plans. So Honda was back on track on Tuesday at the circuit dedicated to the memory of Marco Simoncelli. With the sun shining brightly, Marc Marquez and Daniel Pedrosa were looking ahead, working with next year's engine.

Following on from this, attention turned to the setting of the RC213V, in view of the final five races of the season and considering that #93 still holds a 43-point advantage over Valentino Rossi. The World Championship now has a one-week break before the next round, taking place at Aragon at the end of the month. Last year's Spanish round saw Marquez crash out in the early stages of the race while Pedrosa won a head to head with Rossi.
