Marquez: "It wasn't the best Sunday"

Championship leader off the podium behind enemy lines in Misano

Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) wasn't able to get back on the podium at Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli after a P4 finish in the #BritishGP at Silverstone, crossing the line behind rival Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) in another P4 after a tough Sunday. Marquez, who started from the same position on the grid, was unable to keep the pace of those ahead on track and  was one of the few to have opted for the harder option front tyre - along with both Team Suzuki Ecstar riders of Maverick Viñales and Aleix Espargaro. However, the 2013 and 2014 MotoGP™ takes a valuable 13 points back home to MotorLand Aragon - still 43 clear at the top with the calendar counting down.

Marc Marquez (P4): "Today wasn't one of my best Sundays. I didn't really feel good at any point, but this time we did make the right choice with the tires, given my riding style. At the start of the race I felt strong but I started having problems with the front end and I realized there was more chance of falling off than getting on the podium. So I decided to settle for fourth, and luckily Dani won and we didn't lose too many points."
