Marc, very happy to race at home

The Repsol Honda team rider will be looking the victory at the Catalan Grand Prix, the seventh round of the MotoGP World Championship.

The reigning World Champion Marc Márquez has taken seven podiums at the track, including two victories: One in 125cc in 2010 and another in MotoGP in 2014.

Three weeks ago, the Repsol Honda team undertook a positive test at the track that has returned to its traditional layout at Turn 13.

Marc Márquez:

“I’m very happy anytime we race at home, in front of our fans, and I hope to give them an exciting race on Sunday, as that special atmosphere always gives you extra energy. We had a good test in Catalunya a few weeks ago, when we also had the chance to check out the layout, in particular the final section, which has been revised. I think they also did a really good job with the resurfacing: the tarmac now has very good grip and is very nice to ride on, even if the F1 cars are already starting to affect it by creating bumps at some of the braking points. The kerbs are still one of the track’s most challenging aspects; the inside curbs are very high, and it’s a bit difficult to adapt your riding style to that. That said, it’s a nice track and we’ll try to make the best of it and fight for the podium again”.
