MÁRQUEZ TRAVELS TO FRANCE FOR THE ROUND 5 OF THE SEASON
In the opening four races of the season, Marc Márquez has earned two victories and one second place, putting him top of the overall standings with a 12 point lead over nearest rival Johann Zarco.
Following the Spanish GP, Márquez and Dani Pedrosa took part in two tests: An official test at Jerez, and private test at Mugello in Italy.
“Le Mans is a track where we’ll have to work hard and do our best to try and keep the good momentum. In the past, we’ve been able to win or get on the podium there on some occasions, and other times we’ve struggled to get on pace, but as I always say, every season is different. Of course there will be question marks about the weather, the tyres, and the setup, but our mentality and approach will be the same as always: positive. This year we’re already at a good level as we head to France, so we’ll see how the weekend goes. We’ll try to start well beginning on Friday and then fight for the podium on Sunday.“
