Marquez highly motivated ahead of Estoril: “We are in really good shape right now”
Fresh from competing this past weekend in the Spanish Grand Prix, the paddock moves on at full speed to Estoril, for this Sunday’s Portuguese Grand Prix. The Portuguese track will welcome the Repsol riders from all three categories for their latest challenge, with Marc Márquez’ Moto2 rostrum, great results from the second round of the series at Jerez to take into the weekend. This is a Grand Prix with plenty of good memories for the Repsol riders, who have had excellent results in Estoril.
Marc Márquez has experienced some of his finest moments in Portuguese GPs past. He debuted there in the 2008 World Championship, whilst in 2010 he produced one of the most spectacular comebacks of all time. He won there in the 125cc class on the latter occasion and will attempt to repeat the feat in Moto2, in order to continue an excellent start to the season. He is currently four points ahead in the overall standings.
Marc Márquez “We are highly motivated heading to Portugal, after the win in Qatar and second place at Jerez. We are in really good shape right now, as we were only in action at Jerez a few days ago. We will be very focused, because it is a tricky track. We had a very positive test last year there and there will be some useful reference points to help me for the race. I am really looking forward to getting back on the bike.”
