Márquez does not change his objective

The from ilerdense prepares his return to Silverstone with the motivation to continue progressing: "It is about working to improve and see what is possible on Sunday."


Silverstone is not one of the scenarios that have given Márquez the most joy. In the highest category, the man from ilerdense has only stepped onto the top step of the podium on one occasion and, furthermore, he has only climbed back into the box to celebrate two second positions in his first and last participation on the British track in MotoGP. Historically, Yamaha is the most successful brand in this event with a total of 7 wins, but the equality that has been established in the category has been the real one in charge of making this track one of the least remarkable for the HRC rider, now with an added challenge on their return to English territory: continue to gain competitiveness.

Márquez's goal is not focused only on this scenario but, due to his injury, marks the roadmap of his season. Although it is also true that as the year progresses the physical condition of the eighth championship improves, and hence its demands in each grand prix are increasing despite the fact that the main goal "has not changed". "It is about working to improve and see what is possible to do on Sunday", relates the man from ilerdense about the mentality with which he faces the twelfth race of the season, after a weekend in Austria that left him very good feelings in as for his current level: "In the last race we had the speed and we were able to fight" .

However, Marc knows that "Silverstone is a very different circuit and many drivers can be strong." Despite the fact that the British route is the protagonist due to its meteorological instability, the weekend does not expect storms and the water until now had been a great ally for the ilerdense. But facing his rivals on equal terms on a dry track, Márquez will have to find other strengths in a scenario to which he returns after two years of absence (2019 and 2020). The first due to a deluge that he canceled on race Sunday and the second, due to a pandemic that this time has made it possible to visit English lands again: "It will be great to see the British fans again after two years. Racing in Austria With the fans in the stands it was really nice, so I'm looking forward to a repeat! ".

Pol wants to progress

Less structured is the plan of a Pol Espargaró who is not going through his best moment with the brand of the Golden Wing. The one from Granollers has signed two eighth positions as the best result so far this year, and that background does not meet the expectations of a team that expected more from their new signing. The complexity of the Honda and its adaptation is having a lot to do with its performance and hence it sends a message much more skeptical than that of its partner: "We will see what this weekend can bring us. It is a quite different circuit from the one. We come. First we will have to understand how the bike works there and then make our plan for the weekend. But the goal is to improve and try to solve the problems we had in Austria. "
