Both riders like the Argentine track, where they delivered a Honda 1-2 result during their first visit in 2014, although last year wasn‰Ûªt as rewarding, with Marc crashing out of the race while fighting for the win and Dani not even racing due to the surgery he had just undergone to solve his arm pump problem.
‰ÛÏWe come to Argentina in a positive mood after achieving a third-place finish in Qatar, a result that wasn‰Ûªt really predictable before the start of the season," Marquez said.
"We worked very hard and very well with Honda and with the team over the weekend, and on race day I was able to push as hard as is currently possible. Of course we haven‰Ûªt had a winter test here to count on and we‰Ûªll have to see if the setup we found in Qatar will also work here. That would be a good step forward for us, generally speaking, and we could even aim for a little bit better result on Sunday. Of course it will be a question mark until Friday but all in all, Argentina is a circuit that I like. We‰Ûªve always been fast here, so I feel positive for the weekend.‰Û
