Marquez aiming for podium finish at Misano

After finishing fourth at the British Grand Prix last Sunday, Marc Marquez is hoping to turn things around by finishing on the podium at the San Marino Grand Prix this weekend. 

The Repsol Honda rider was in a battle with Valentino Rossi for third place at Silverstone, but he went off the track at Stowe with two laps remaining and was subsequently forced to settle for fourth place. 

While Marquez was disappointed with his performance at the British Grand Prix, he still holds a comfortable 50-point lead atop the MotoGP standings. 

“All in all we got an okay result in England, as even though we didn’t make the ideal choice with the front tyre, in the end we lost just three points,” he said. 

Heading into the San Marino Grand Prix, the Spaniard is brimming with confidence as he feels he will be able to contend for a podium finish should the weather not cause any problems. 

“Now we head to Misano, which is quite a different track as it is twisty and slow. In San Marino I expect to fight again for the podium if we work well during the weekend,” he said. “I’m happy to go racing in Italy, where I really hope the weather will be nice and give us the chance to make the most of every session.”
