Dovizioso lays down a marker on Day 2 at Jerez

Alex Marquez, standing in for injured Tom Lüthi on the EG 0,0 Marc VDS MotoGP™ Honda, made big inroads on the second day to go P15 after 57 laps under the watchful eye of big brother Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team), the reigning MotoGP™ Champion. The Repsol Honda Team are not riding at the Jerez test, instead electing to use the test days next season, with Movistar Yamaha MotoGP and Monster Yamaha Tech 3 also electing to use different dates – heading for Sepang International Circuit for a private test at the end of the month.
