Marquez Blog: A battle to the end

Marquez Blog: A battle to the end

In his latest blog for boxrepsol.com Marc Marquez reflects on an incredible Italian GP and looks ahead to Barcelona.

Hi everybody!

I came back from Mugello feeling very satisfied. It was a hard weekend, like most this year, as we had to work quite hard to make the appropriate adjustments for the race.

In the end I was quite competitive and I think that we were able to offer the spectators a great show: a duel with Lorenzo where we battled for victory until the last second.

It’s a pity to have lost on the finish line itself; it’s a bit upsetting…but I have to look on the bright side. The truth is that those 20 points are very important. Last year at Mugello, for example, I finished without scoring.

I’m very close to leading and I have quite a bit ahead of me. What I have to do now is keep pushing. Honda is also going to keep working hard; they are trying to make us more and more competitive.

I’m feeling optimistic about the Catalan GP. I know that it isn’t one of the circuits that I do best, but I’m sure that I’ll be able to keep this dynamic up. It will also be important for us to take advantage of the test before the GP; the goal is to keep improving.

The truth is I’m very excited to have my fans close. Cervera isn’t very far from Montmeló and I’m sure they will be cheering me on from the stands. If you’d like to join them, Fan Club Marc will be in grandstand G, sections 14 to 24.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK (from Clàudia C.):
I’m curious to know how old you were when you started studying English?

Hey Claudia,

Your question is very interesting. I have to think about it…It was when I started primary school when I was about five years old, although I really began to apply myself when I got to the World Championship, just after my 14th birthday.

Best wishes,

Marc
