The next battleground is Spain, where Marc Marquez will be able to count on the support of his home crowd. The championship lands in Aragon, a track at which #93 dominated the last two editions.
The six-time champion is feeling confident then, despite the competition, fiercer than ever: “I can't wait to race at one of my favourite track - stated Marc – this year they've even dedicated a corner of the track to me”.
Dovizioso is his closest rival in the title fight right now, though the Italian is 60 points behind: “Last year Andrea and I had the same points at this point, but this time I have a significant advantage - he recalls – this doesn't mean that the championship is already over, in fact it's the opposite. We need to continue to work to find something that allows us to be as fast as the Ducatis, seeing as they are able to be competitive at every track”.
Still in the Honda camp, it will also be interesting to see Dani Pedrosa's level of competitiveness: “I've always liked Aragon as a track - states Dani – in the past I've scored strong results here and hope to be able to do so again this time. I can't wait to get started”.
