Marquez confident for home race but staying cautious of potential mistakes

 In Moto2, News

The MotoGP travelling circus pitches up at the Circuito de Jerez this week for the first European round of the season – at which the Repsol riders will be enjoying the unconditional support of the packed grandstands. The event follows a great start to the year in Qatar, where Repsol competitors won both the Moto2 and Moto3 races and MotoGP representatives Dani Pedrosa and Casey Stoner were on the podium.

The Qatar Moto2 race showed that the class would once again be the closest category in the World Championship –and that Marc Márquez hasn´t missed a beat. The Repsol rider won a tough battle in Losail which put him at the top of the standings, after a difficult preseason. The Spaniard was on the top step of the Jerez podium in 2007 when riding in the CEV Spanish Championship, but has only managed second place at the circuit so far in the World Championship.

Marc Márquez: “We head to Jerez happy and motivated. The win in Qatar gives us plenty of confidence, but we have to stay alert because the pressure and desire to do well in front of the Spanish fans could take its toll. The Circuito de Jerez is a track at which we rode in preseason and there are many riders who are fast there, so we will have to be 100% focused in order to have a good weekend.”
