Marc Marquez 93 (Repsol Honda Team) who won his third title in 2016 now is focused on pulling further clear this weekend at Motegi in Japan, which heralds a run of three consecutive flyaway rounds prior to the final round of the 2017 championship at Valencia in Spain.
Marquez said: “There are four GPs to go in the season and we must give 100% at every one, starting with the three flyaway rounds.”
“These races are always demanding due to the different time zones and conditions, and this year with the Championship so close, they’ll be even more of a challenge.”
“We have some great memories in Japan because we won last year and got the title there twice, but every season is a new story and we must remain focused and ready to handle every situation.”
“The most important thing for us is that since Montmeló, we’ve been on the podium in every race but Silverstone. We’ve done a good job of managing different conditions and different circuits, which gives us confidence and shows that we’re at a good level everywhere.”
” We’ll give our best effort and push hard to get another good result in front of Honda’s home fans.”
“Track conditions in Motegi can vary dramatically, and we’ll have to work hard on the set-up to find a good compromise for the hard acceleration and braking.”
