Marc will fight for his fourth victory in a row

The Repsol Honda team rider travels to Italy to celebrate the sixth round of the MotoGP World Championship season, after his third victory in a row.

The reigning World Champion has won three times on his previous visits to the Mugello circuit: The first of his Grand Prix career in 2010 in 125cc, a Moto2 win in 2011, and the most recent in 2014, in MotoGP.

Marc comes into the Italian Grand Prix leading the championship with 36 points ahead of his nearest rival. Mugello is characterised by being one of the most beautiful, fast and demanding circuits on the calendar.

“It’s good to go to Mugello with an advantage in the Championship, but we’re still in the early phase of the season and everything is very tight, so we must keep our feet well on the ground. We had a test at Mugello before the French GP and were able to be fast and very consistent. That’s good of course, but you always have to wait and see what situation you’re in when you start working for the race.

There are always question marks regarding tyres, setup, temperatures, and so on. For instance, conditions will probably be warmer this weekend compared to when we tested, so we’ll just keep concentrating to try and manage well the usual ups and downs of preparing for a race.”
