Marc Marquez has achieved victory at Misano on 3 occasions: Once in 125cc ‒ 2010 ‒ and two in Moto2 ‒ 2011 and he holds the fastest lap of the circuit, 1:32.915.
Marc Marquez starts the last third of the season this weekend at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, which will host the thirteenth round of the MotoGP World Championship. At this track, Marc Marquez took consecutive victories in 2010 (in 125cc), 2011 and 2012 (in Moto2), but it is one of the circuits where he has not yet won in MotoGP, along with Motegi and Phillip Island.
After falling off in Silverstone while he was fighting for the victory to maintain his aspirations for the title, Marquez sets himself the challenge of winning as many races as possible in the last six Grand Prixes.
Marc Marquez: “Obviously I’m disappointed to have crashed out of the race in the UK, but I was pushing and this can happen when the weather is like that. Of course the Championship is getting further away from us but we were back fighting at the front and this is definitely a positive. Now we head to Misano which is a pretty small and slow track. We were testing there before the Summer break so I hope the data from that test can help us with the setting this weekend. It’s a delicate balance getting the bike right to suit the demands on braking at this twisty track and let’s hope the weather is nice after last weekend!”
