Márquez: “Jerez will be another important and hard Grand Prix”

Thursday, April 19, 2012

The pilot from Lleida has presented the new personal sponsorship agreement with the Lotus brand, which will launch a collection of watches inspired by the current Moto2 ™ World sub-champion.

After the triumph in Losail that gave him the initial leadership in Moto2 ™, Marc Márquez prepares with morale the next round of the Championship at the circuit of Jerez, where he will debut a new personal sponsor.

The Moto2 World runner-up has presented his association with the Lotus brand in Barcelona on Thursday, for which he will become the campaign image of the new collections of sports watches and complements `Marc Márquez’, created under the inspiration of the world of motorcycling . The Lleida will also wear the logo of the brand on his helmet during this next season 2012, and presumably will also accompany him in his jump to MotoGP, since the association with the watchmaking firm is for three years.

Márquez took the opportunity to share his impressions on the aforementioned inaugural appointment of the 2012 course and also on his imminent visits to Jerez and Estoril on two consecutive weekends.

“The triumph in Qatar was important, an injection of confidence for the whole team, we really enjoyed it, but now we are thinking about Jerez that will be another important and hard Grand Prix” said Márquez, who was willing to turn the page on the controversial maneuver that he starred with Luthi in that race.

“I do not want any misunderstanding with any driver, and more being of the same brand, I think he understood it, they are hot actions and in Jerez everything returns to normal, but in one last lap, and in Moto2, there is always a lot of battle and everyone wants to win “points on the subject.

Also forgotten is the injury that forced him to start the 2012 season with hardly any preseason. “It was a long thing, five hard months, of ups and downs, but the important thing is that I recovered. If someone had any doubts, in Qatar he could verify that I am at 100% sight, “says the motorcyclist.

On his expectations in Jerez and Estoril, two tracings where he did not add any points in 2011, continuing with the rugged start of the course he had on the desert track, Márquez says: “We hope to use the experience of last year, this does not mean that I can not make a mistake, it can always happen, but we will try to use the experience. In Qatar we did well, but in Jerez we started from scratch, and the same in Estoril. This is very long, it has just started and we have to go with patience. ”
