Marc Marquez & Dani Pedrosa head for Misano leading championship table

 In MotoGP, News


The MotoGP World Championship goes into the final third of the season with the Repsol Honda Team leading the World Championship.

Marc Marquez, winner of 11 of the 12 races held to date, gave no option of victory to his rivals at the most recent round and is at his best heading a track where one year ago he placed second.

The reigning MotoGP World Champion and series leader has won three times at Misano (2010, 2011 and 2012). Dani Pedrosa, second in the overall standings, also knows what it takes to win at Misano, where he took the win, pole position and fastest lap in 2010.

Marc Marquez
“It was nice to be back on the top step of the podium in Silverstone, the team did a great job the whole weekend. Now we head to Misano which is a smaller and slower track compared to others on the calendar. We will have to work hard from Friday to get the setup on the bike just right, to suit the demands on braking at this twisty track and let’s hope the weather is also nice!”

Dani Pedrosa
“I’m looking forward to Misano this weekend! There is always a nice crowd over the three days and a good atmosphere with the Italian fans. Hopefully we’ll have good weather from the Friday and get things going in the right direction. It’s a short lap but intense with many overtaking points and it’s quite bumpy, so set up is key. Let’s hope for an exciting race!”
