Marquez: 'I’m looking forward to putting Qatar behind us'

Marc Marquez looks forward to the second round of the 2015 MotoGP™ season in Austin, where he has dominated proceedings in the past.

This is just the third time the MotoGP™ paddock will visit the 5.513 km Texas circuit completed in 2012 which features a total of 20 corners with 9 right turns and 11 left turns. Marc took his first premier class victory here in 2013 and also emerged victorious in 2014, with Dani completing the 1-2 for Repsol Honda on both occasions.

Marquez finished fifth in Qatar, after running wide at the first corner and having to rejoin the race in last position.

Marc Marquez:
"I’m really looking forward to getting to Austin and putting Qatar behind us. The Circuit of The Americas is one of my favourite circuits and I have good memories of taking my first win in the MotoGP™ class, back in 2013, and also winning there last year. We need to work hard from FP1 and then keep this momentum for the whole weekend and have a ‘normal’ race. I’m really sorry for Dani, myself and the whole team wish him a speedy recovery. We welcome Hiroshi to the team and will help him how we can!"
