MotoGP: Marquez: I won't change the way I race

Following the Argentina GP, Marc Marquez flew to Brazil, to Sao Paolo, for a promotional event. The Honda rider also met the press and, unsurprisingly, fielded many questions regarding what happened last Sunday..

Marc answered calmly but deliberately: “I won't change the way I race, I've always done so with maximum intensity and I'll continue to do so” he confirms.

This doesn't mean that Marquez is not accepting responsibility for what occurred with Rossi.

I understand my mistake, I was penalised for it and the first thing I did afterwards was remove my helmet and go to Valentino to apologise. I made a mistake but anyone can make such a mistake because we're always riding at the limit. I always learn from my mistakes but it ends there, it happened with Valentino but it could have been with any other rider. I try to understand and analyse everything, but in the end Rossi is a rider like the others on track”.

The best way to put it all behind him is to focus on the next race, set to take place in a little over a week at Austin, one of Marc's domains.

I'll always ride at the limit, I won't change my DNA. I have a good feeling about the next GP”, he comments.
