MÁRQUEZ LOOKING FOR HIS 3RD STRAIGHT PODIUM IN LE MANS
Marc Marquez is en route to France for round 5 of the MotoGP World Championshipafter scoring one win and one additional podium finish in the last two races.
The next challenge for Marc Márquez comes at the historic, stop-and-go Le Mans Circuit, which has recently been resurfaced. The Spanish rider has moved up in the standings to third (-4 points). Marc Marquez has 2 wins: 1 x Moto2 (2011), and 1 x MGP (2014), plus an additional 2 podiums and 5 pole positions.
Marc Marquez: “Le Mans is particular and different from many other layouts of the Championship. It’s a really narrow, short track with a lot of stop-and-go corners. To make an example, it’s the opposite of the Montmeló circuit [Circuit de Catalunya], but still quite enjoyable. The surface is new and we’ll discover it on Friday morning. The grip should be better and that’s positive for us riders and also for the fans as it means a better show. We must wait and see how it goes there—this year it’s even more difficult to make any predictions. We just have to continue like we’ve done in the last races, working hard, with the right mentality, because the Championship is once again very close.”Back to news
