“Mentality stays the same” as Marquez approaches final stretch of the season
The Motorcycling World Championship is approaching its end, starting the most exciting part of the series, where the titles will be decided and the Repsol riders will play a key role. Marc Márquez, a firmer contender for the Moto2 title after an amazing recovery, will fight for the World Championship title from next Friday in Motegi, Japan.
Marc Márquez starts the last part of the season after dealing yet another blow to the class leader, Stefan Bradl, during the round held two weeks ago in Spain. With a difference of 6 points between them and with another 100 points still up for grabs, the rest of the season will be a completely new championship, where the two riders will fight to be Toni Elias’ heir as the king of Moto2.
Marc Márquez: “I like competing in Japan, where the atmosphere is always very special and this year it will certainly be even more so. With the 125cc bike it went very well for me at the Motegi track, especially last year, where I was able to win.
As always, we will have to pay attention to the weather, because there is a chance of rain some of the days. We will see how it goes with the Moto2, but I am sure that it will be a fun track, as Aragon, because there are many braking points and a place where you skid a lot.
In the last race I improved a lot in this area thanks to the new parts. We are just 6 points away from the lead, but that will not change our mentality or the way we do our job, because it has worked very well for us up to now”.
