Marquez: “This is my favourite track of the year”

Marquez: “This is my favourite track of the year”

Back to winning ways, Marc Marquez heads to his favourite track with the Gran Premio Movistar de Aragon.

A hectic San Marino GP saw Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez come out victorious, perfectly judging the conditions and making his bike changes at the critical times. The 2015 season has been mixed, but Marquez looks to be back on track after an error in Silverstone caused him to crash. Since the MotoGP™ World Championship debuted at the Aragon circuit in 2010, Marquez has taken two victories and a podium, though finished down in 13th last year after crashing and remounting. Despite the highs and lows of Aragon, Marquez still holds the circuit as one of his favourites; it’s all close to his birthplace of Lleida.

With 184 points, Marquez still has a mathematical chance of winning he 2015 crown though it will be extremely difficult. Instead of looking at the championship, the factory Honda rider is focused on taking race wins and ending 2015 in the strongest way possible. A win at Aragon would also be Marquez’s 50th career win in the World Championship, his first coming in the 125cc race at Mugello in 2010, this would make him just the eighth rider in grand prix history to reach the milestone.

Marc Marquez: “After a strange race in Misano, I’m really looking forward to Aragon this weekend! This is my favourite track of the year and we’ve had good results in the past, despite last year’s unfortunate rain-affected race! The first and final sections of the track are quite technical and you must work hard on the setup to have good cornering. Let’s hope this weekend we can have a ‘normal’ race weekend with good weather so we can work hard from the Friday and be ready for the fight on Sunday."
