Phillip Island is one of the favorite tracks for Marc Marquez, even if he hasn’t won there yet in MotoGP. He did won in 125cc back in 2010.
The MotoGP World Championship this week moves to Phillip Island for the Australian Grand Prix. Marc Marquez is very motivated for the second round of the triple flyaways, where he will try to climb the podium again after two races out of it. Despite having very few days to recover from his left hand fracture, he wants to do a good performance in one of his favorite circuits, where he won in 2012 in 125cc.
Marc Marquez: “It wasn’t a great weekend in Japan but it could have been a lot worse. With the wet conditions it was not such a stress on my injured hand, so this is a positive. Now we go to Australia and I really look forward to this weekend because Phillip Island is one of my favourite circuits. I think it will be a better track for us than Motegi so we will work hard from FP1 on Friday to try and find the best setup. Now I will try to rest my hand for a few days as this track is very physical with many hard and fast changes in direction.“
