The Termas de Rio Hondo round resulted in a lot of controversy and doubts that Marc Marquez is keen to put behind him. The Austin round is therefore a great opportunity to turn the page and start over, with the Spaniard having never put a foot wrong at the American track before now. For as long as he's raced in Texas, #93 has dominated every Grand Prix, winning every edition. The track is undoubtedly one of his strongholds.
The Spaniard looks back at his season start: “After a good start to the season in Qatar, we got no points in Argentina, but I was feeling good on the bike in both races, which is positive. The season is long and the most important thing is that our level is there.
In America Marc dreams of scoring his sixth consecutive victory: “This is a good circuit with a good atmosphere and great memories: it was the place of my first pole and my first MotoGP victory and we’ve been able to be strong there since then, so it’s a good place to try and get a good result."
Nevertheless, Marc won't be lowering his guard: “Every season is different: the bikes, the tyres, the conditions. This year some work was done to reduce the bumps, so we’ll see how the track is. As we’ve done so far, over the weekend we’ll focus our work on the race setup, and then on Sunday we’ll see where we’re able to finish.”
