2019 preseason: what do the numbers tell us?

Take a look at four pieces of data extracted from winter testing ahead of the Qatar GP

Preseason has officially come to an end for the premier class as all eyes turn to FP1 on Friday 8th March at the Losail International Circuit in Qatar. But before you do, take a look at some of the numbers behind 2019 winter testing below. 

Honda had the highest top speed at the Qatar Test

A surprising stat to some, but it was in fact the reigning World Champion Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) who set the highest number through the speed traps in Losail. His 348.4km/h was slightly quicker than Jack Miller’s (Alma Pramac Racing) Desmosedici, that clocked in at 347.2. Proof that HRC has managed to improve their engine for the 2019 campaign.
