Phillip Island: Going Down Under in Marc’s race for the title

Marc Márquez travels to Australia for the second MotoGP flyaway round, visiting a circuit where he felt good in pre-season testing in February. Repsol Honda man, who became at Motegi the youngest rider to reach the milestone of 100 podiums, arrives at Phillip Island -one of his favourite circuits- as leader of the World Championship. He holds an advantage of 11 points over Andrea Dovizioso. Márquez has already been crowned World Champion at Phillip Island. It was in 2012 in Moto2.

Marc Márquez: “We go to Australia very motivated after Japan, where we scored good points at a track that’s normally tough for us, and in quite difficult conditions. I really look forward to this weekend because Phillip Island is an incredible racetrack, one of my favourite.

It’s difficult because it’s very physical, with many hard and fast changes in direction, but I enjoy it a lot every year and generally I think it’s a better track for us than Motegi. I hope for good weather, and then we’ll see. We’ll work hard to try and find the best setup and keep fighting hard for this Championship”.
