She was very happy about that but her comment straight afterwards was wow what an uncomfortable seat he has. It is the most plain flat plancked little primary school chair you have ever seen...just painted red. It really is a non event as far a chairs go AND HARD!

In comparison to the elaborate seats you see in Pedrosa's, Stoner's etc pit boxes it is just radical! (in the opposite sense)

Fascinating seems that in racing mode he is not so concerned about sitting down.

MotoMatters full article

"Having already tested the 2012 Suter bike during last season helped a bit in all this, but we still have new parts to test. I took a little time to get used to the bike again and also to find the ideal lines on the track." Motomatters.com asked Marquez if he had had any problems with the double vision he had suffered since Sepang. "Absolutely not," Marquez replied, "I'm fully recovered. I am still practicing the rehabilitation movements in my eye, but just because I was told to do so by doctors. The whole thing is now behind us and we are concentrating again on the set up of the bike and also on my riding".
