Marquez hoping to be at full fitness for demanding Malaysian round
Almost without any time to rest the MotoGP paddock will face this weekend the second-to-last round of the calendar, the Malaysian Grand Prix. In Moto2, Marc Márquez is only three points away from the lead, when there are still 50 up for grabs.
Nothing is impossible for Marc Márquez in Moto2. After recovering 35 positions in Australia to finish on the podium, the Repsol rider arrives to a circuit he already conquered last year in the small category. This has been a dream season for the young rider from Cervera who, two races from the end of the Championship, depends only on himself to get the title of World Champion in his first year in Moto2. He is second in the overall standings three points behind the leader, German Stefan Bradl, and has finish on the podium nine consecutive times. The Sepang track will be the next chance for Marc Márquez to keep being the protagonist of a year that will enter the motorcycling history.
Marc Márquez: “After that intensive weekend we start over again in Malaysia. With the 125cc, Sepang went very well, so I hope that I can have fun also with the Moto2. It is a Grand Prix where you need to be very well prepared physically and although I still have some bruises, I hope I will be at 100%. The physical preparation is good, so during the practice and the race it will be important to be careful with hydration. The last sector has very long straights, so it will also very important to have a very good engine set-up. Another thing to take into account are the sudden and frequent rains, that can change the conditions of the track in a moment”.
