Le Mans hosts the fifth round of the MotoGP World Championship this weekend. Marc Márquez arrives at the Grand Prix of France after achieving a second place in Jerez in the last race of the championship and winning in Austin in the previous one.
Cervera rider has three pole positions at Le Mans in MotoGP (2013, 2014 and 2015) and one victory in 2014. After four races and two podium places at the last two Grands Prix, Marc is four points off the lead of the World Championship.
Marc Márquez: “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, 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”.
