Marquez aiming to extend championship lead further
The Indianapolis Grand Prix concluded just a few days ago, but the World Championship keeps its momentum going with a long trip to Europe for the Czech Republic Grand Prix. Marc Márquez arrives at Brno as the runaway leader in Moto2, fresh from claiming his fifth win from ten races. His most recent victory — his 22nd — moves the Repsol rider ahead of future teammate Dani Pedrosa as the Under-20 with most wins. Márquez was on the podium at Brno last year.
Marc Márquez “The Czech Republic Grand Prix comes straight after the triumph in Indianapolis, so we’re happy and in good shape. But we have to be focused from the start, much like we were last weekend. The Brno circuit is very fast and very good for rivals like Iannone. Last year we placed second and the aim must be to be on the podium this year, to continue adding as many points as possible to my tally in the fight for the championship. Suter and the team worked very well at Indy and at the test in Portimao, but now we have to keep it going”.
