    Marquez said pre test he didn't think it would make much of a difference.

    Previously, Marquez admitted he didn't expect Honda to supply any significant developments for the rest of the year and was resigned to a performance deficit to Yamaha.

    Speaking a few days ago during a sponsor event, the Spaniard admitted he didn't expect the new frame to make "a big difference".

    “Honda has given us some little things and could be a help, but they won’t make a big difference. We will test a chassis [at Brno] and some other things," he said.

    A few years ago after riding the 2015 bike Stoner did say the engine wasn't the issue it was the chassis. A new engine hasn't solved Hondas acceleration problems. Stoners ability to feel things on the bike is totally unparalleled, I would be inclined to trust his judgement over Marquez who currently doesn't have the best record when it comes to developing a great bike.

    Marquez also plays his cards very close to his chest, whether that's his actual opinion or not I don't know.

    Hondas acceleration woes started with the 2016 bike and Hondas failure to adapt to the new stock ECUs. Stoner wouldn't have tested the 2016 bike before he left Honda at the end of 2015.

    No, Hondas acceleration woes started in 2015 and were a major cause for Marquez crashing out so often. Valencia 2015 shows how much Marquez struggled coming out of corners. It's also part of the reason why he went back to the 2014 chassis in 2015.

    Edit to add: Stoners talking about the chassis at the end of the interview.
