Contractually we were not able to hear his first impressions of the Ducati GP23 from his own voice, but of course Marc Marquez spoke with his technician Frankie Carchedi and we know his commentary thanks to the ambient audio.
Tanks to the ambient audio, his first impressions were circulated. He was very analytical in his account and went into detail analysing the behaviour of a bike that is completely new to him. He explained the response when opening the throttle of the desmodromic engine, then how the GP23 closes the trajectory with the throttle on and the reactions when bringing the brakes to the middle of the corner. Then of course he praised the responsiveness in changes of direction, underlining the difference with the Honda, which had to be pulled to either side. In one sentence he said it all: 'the grip is amazing'.
