Márquez eyes another good result at Aragón
24 September 2013 – Repsol Honda rider Marc Márquez is hoping to get another ‘good result’ this weekend at the Aragón MotoGP event.
Márquez has a good record at the ultra-modern 5.077 km track and won the Moto2 race there in 2011.
Following his second place finish in San Marino, the Spaniard goes into the 14th round with a 34-point lead in the MotoGP Riders’ Championship and he will be aiming to extend that margin on home soil.
“It will be nice to return home to race in front of our home fans in Aragón this weekend,” he stated. “The track - which is one of my favourites, has technical first and final sections, and you need to be strong in cornering.
“We've had good results there in the past two years so I hope to continue this way and we've also been testing there already this year on the MotoGP machine, so we have some data.
“After the race in Misano, we had a good test on the Monday and definitely found some positive settings, so I'm looking forward to trying them out this weekend in Aragon!”
Team-mate, Dani Pedrosa is similarly enthusiastic about the event and won there in 2012, as well as taking two second places in 2011 and 2010.
“I've always done well in Aragón and I'm looking forward to racing in front of our home crowd again, the support is always great and gives you motivation,” added Pedrosa, who is third in the standings. “We had a test on Monday after Misano and found some positive things that I hope will help us here in Motorland, especially in corner exit. We'll have to wait and see.”
