Phillip Island preview quotes: Miguel Oliveria, Alex Rins, Alex Marquez

 In Alex Marquez, Alex Rins, Moto3, News

Repsol’s Moto3 riders arrive in Australia with Álex Rins as the new leader of the Rookie Of The Year standings. The Spaniard’s seventh place at Sepang helped him to overtake fellow sensation, Romano Fenati. Fourth in the World Championship standings, Rins, teammate Miguel Oliveira and Álex Márquez land in Australia attempting to cap off the triple flyaway in the best way possible. Phillip Island will be the final track that they have to learn this season before a familiar end to the campaign in Valencia.

Miguel Oliveira
“Phillip Island is another track at which I have never ridden before. It is technical, narrow and has many changes in altitude. You have to have a lot of precision and find a good setup. When we arrive in Australia we will try to adapt as quickly as possible, so that in the race we can give our best. After a good weekend in Malaysia, which is also a new track for me, the entire team are very motivated.”

Álex Rins
“We once again face an unknown track. We will have to adapt quickly, although I am sure that it will be a little tougher than at other circuits because in Australia there is a lot of wind. We will try to have another good race in order to maintain the lead of the Rookie Of The Year standings, which is our main objective.”

Álex Márquez
“We are going to a new track where we will have to work hard from day one to learn our lines. They say that Phillip Island is a fast circuit and I think that it could very well suit my riding style. On Sunday we hope to be at the front, in order to continue to pick up points.”
