Marquez hoping to profit from Portimao test in second part of the season
After the traditional summer break, the MotoGP World Championship reconvenes this weekend for the Indianapolis Grand Prix. This is the first of the final eight events of 2012 and the Repsol riders have not neglected their training over the past few weeks. For an example of this, one need look no further than the onboard footage of Marc Márquez’ test at Portimao from July 23rd-25th.
Marc Márquez also crossed the famous line of bricks in first place last season. The Moto2 series leader holds a 34 point advantage over nearest rival Pol Espargaró, and heads to Indianapolis looking to improve upon his fifth place at the Italian Grand Prix. Márquez had a three-day test with his Suter at Portimao over the summer break.
Marc Márquez “The racing is back and we are starting with two races in as many weekends. We return to Indianapolis, one of the most historic circuits in the world. The summer holidays have been a very good chance to rest and also to do a test at Portimao. The results of that test might prove useful in the second half of the season. I like Indy as a circuit and we’ll be looking for a top result. Our goal is to adapt as soon as possible, in order to find our setting for Sunday.”
