Marc Marquez has two victories at the Silverstone circuit: One in 125cc in 2010 and one in MotoGP in 2014. After eleven races, the Cervera rider leads the series with a 53-point advantage over his closest rival.

The MotoGP World Championship contests its twelfth round of the season this weekend at Silverstone –a former airport during World War II. Marc Marquez comes into the British Grand Prix as leader of the MotoGP standings with 197 points –53 more than his closest rival. The Repsol Honda Team rider also has good memories of this weekend’s venue: He won at Silverstone in 2010 in 125cc and 2014 in MotoGP, in addition to podium finishes in 3 of his last 4 appearances there (in Moto2 and MotoGP).

Marc Marquez: Silverstone is a place where the weather is generally quite unpredictable, meaning that cold and rain are variables you have to be prepared to face. We’ve encountered ‘mixed conditions’ situations more than once this year, and we saw how important it is to remain focused and make the right choices. We’ll see what happens during the weekend and we’ll try to manage the situation with the same mind-set that has gotten us this far. I like the track a lot; it has a slower first section but then there’s a series of ‘esses’ where it’s possible to make the difference if you find a good setup for the bike. I’ve always enjoyed racing there and we’ll push at the maximum to get the best result possible“.

Repsol Honda team rider finishes third at Czech GP hit by rain.

The Czech Republic Grand Prix provided another show in the MotoGP class, contest on a wet track that never quite dried out enough to require slick tyres. Marc Marquez managed to overcome the tricky conditions to achieve a valuable third place at Brno. The Repsol Honda Team rider thus scored 16 points in a tough race, and moves his points total up to 197. Still the series leader, he has a 53 point advantage over his nearest rival.

Marc Marquez: “I’m happy with the end result because the most important thing is that today I extended my advantage over second in the overall standings, as I only dropped four points to Valentino [Rossi] while Jorge [Lorenzo] didn’t score points. We proved that we’re competitive both in dry and wet conditions. This year we’re working like ants, making gradual, steady improvements and having a very complete season without changing our mindset.

I made a mistake with the tyres choice, but it’s easier to judge things in hindsight. Perhaps the best tyre choice was the hard compound on both the front and rear, but I was expecting a flag-to-flag race since the track normally dries quickly, which wasn’t the case today. When I saw that there was less than 10 laps to go and the track was still wet, I started to manage my tyre wear. I saw that Crutchlow and Rossi had a faster pace, so I concentrated on my other rivals and I can say I won the battle with them“.

Marc Marquez will be in action for a second consecutive week, heading to the historic Brno circuit after a challenging Austrian GP.

The Repsol Honda rider holds two victories at Brno: One in Moto2 in 2012 and one in MotoGP in 2013. After 10 races, Marc Marquez leads the World Championship with 181 points, 43 more than closest rival Jorge Lorenzo and 57 more than third placed Valentino Rossi. Pedrosa lies fourth with 105 points.

Immediately following the Austrian Grand Prix, the MotoGP World Championship takes the short trip to the Czech Republic for round 11 of the 2016 season. Marc Marquez comes into the Czech GP leader of the overall standings with 181 points, and has a good record at Brno. The Spaniard has been on the podium at 4 of his last 5 appearances there (2 in Moto2 and 2 in MotoGP), with two victories.

Marc Marquez: We had a challenging weekend in Austria but we did the best we could and, all things considered, we were able to get away quite well. The shoulder didn’t bother me during the race but it was a bit sore afterward, so these couple of days before Brno have been good to rest a bit. Brno isn’t one of my favourite tracks but we’ve been able to get some good results there in the past. We must be really focused and work well in order to be able to fight for the podium again“.

The Repsol Honda rider, Marc Márquez, finishes Repsol fifth on Austria’s return to the MotoGP calendar. The rider takes important points for the overall standings. 

Marc Marquez salvages points from the Austrian GP after two difficult days of practice, placing inside the top ten in a tough race. The World Championship leader had started from fifth on the grid, and kept the spot at the chequered flag. He had attempted to move up the order in the early stages, alternating positions with Valentino Rossi, but eventually settled for points which take him to 181 overall. Marquez is currently 43 points ahead of nearest rival Jorge Lorenzo.

The eleventh round of the season takes place next weekend in the Czech Republic.

Marc Marquez: “After how yesterday went, I’m happy with today’s race. My shoulder didn’t hurt at any time during the race, so no excuses there. I would have taken fifth position if it were offered to me before starting the race. I knew the Ducatis and Yamahas were fast, so this was the best possible outcome and it’s positive that we’ve only lost five points compared to Lorenzo. Given the difficulties we’ve had, it was clear that our objective was to think of the fight for the Championship. I started aggressively, as it was the only way of trying to fight with the front group, but after making a couple of mistakes I lost the slipstream and it was very difficult to recover from that”.
