Marc Marquez claimed he and Honda still have not found the right setting after completing the trial's opening day in seventh position with a 1.594s gap behind Movistar Yamaha rider Jorge Lorenzo at Sepang.
The greatest concern is that the new Honda engine is offered only able to provide a very small difference from the previous super-aggressive character of the machine is still a big puzzle for Marquez.
"Maybe Lorenzo too far! Compared to what we expected," Marquez said with a smile when asked about the gap to the front riders by Crash.
"But it was only Lorenzo, while Rossi and behind which is still close to us, it means they are not too big gap. I just hope the electronics and the front tire can be fit with our machine settings.
With my tires do not have a big problem, but it looks like with the electronics and the engine character is still there that did not feel comfortable. So the first day has not produced any results, we still have to work hard.
Electronic still not 100%. If one of the settings, I will lose a lot of time. If I opened the gas too big machine becomes very aggressive, a lot of movement. We strive to find the best solution to this problem. "
In the case of new tires then, Marquez admitted that most are not suitable braking force to the front Michelin tires because it is very sensitive.
"About my driving style, while using Bridgestone I can brake and quiet, but now with Michelin I have to change some of my braking style," said Marquez.
Turns Motor used Marquez now use the 2014 chassis, only the machines are new, namely the 2016 version.
