Repsol Honda Team head to Britain to begin another back-to-back stint

Posted:

With just one weekend off after his third-place finish in Brno, Championship leader Marc Marquez heads to Britain aiming to once again fight for the podium at a track that he likes and that has brought him good results.

‰ÛÏSilverstone is a place where the weather is generally quite unpredictable, meaning that cold and rain are variables you have to be prepared to face," Marquez explained.

"We‰Ûªve encountered ‰Û÷mixed conditions‰Ûª situations more than once this year, and we saw how important it is to remain focused and make the right choices. We‰Ûªll see what happens during the weekend and we‰Ûªll try to manage the situation with the same mind-set that has gotten us this far.

"I like the track a lot; it has a slower first section but then there‰Ûªs a series of ‰Û÷esses‰Ûª where it‰Ûªs possible to make the difference if you find a good setup for the bike. I‰Ûªve always enjoyed racing there and we‰Ûªll push at the maximum to get the best result possible," the Spaniard concluded.
Dani Pedrosa
Teammate Dani Pedrosa (fourth in the standings) is looking to regain his confidence and return to a more usual pace for him.

‰ÛÏMy main goal at the moment is to regain some confidence and feeling and then build upon that," Pedrosa said.

"The work we did during the Brno post-race test gave us a few ideas and we‰Ûªll see now if we‰Ûªre able to start to find some more speed in the next races. Silverstone is a challenging venue with many changes of direction that require a lot of work on the bike‰Ûªs settings.

"Another important topic is the weather, which is often quite unpredictable, and that also makes it demanding to set up the bike, to choose tyres and so on. The morning practices and the afternoon practice often give you different feelings. The track is very fast, quite winding, and it‰Ûªs not easy. Once you get going though, things get better and everything gets more flowing on race day.‰Û
