‘We want podium fin­ish’

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Sport -

Last year’s Aragon Mo­toGP Grand Prix was one of the most ex­cit­ing of the sea­son as Marc Mar­quez took a huge step to­wards the world ti­tle with a thrilling last lap vic­tory. The smil­ing Spa­niard is back again and aim­ing to de­light his home fans with an­other thrilling ex­hi­bi­tion of speed on two wheels. Ex­cerpts from an in­ter­view... an­other cor­ner and an­other race.

Ex­pe­ri­ence. And it is not just that I have more ex­pe­ri­ence, but the whole team, does. We are hav­ing a great sea­son so far and we all know that there is still work to be done. The im­por­tant thing is to keep calm, avoid nerves, be­ing com­pla­cent and al­ways try to fin­ish on the podium. We al­ways work hard to be com­pet­i­tive on Sun­day with the mis­sion to fin­ish on a podium which is the most im­por­tant thing.

That is so dif­fi­cult to an­swer, if only be­cause I do not like to be per­sonal about other rid­ers. But if I am pushed I would have to say An­drea Do­vi­siozo, only be­cause he is clos­est to me in the cham­pi­onship race. He is very, very fast and he is not the only one out there I have to be wary of. Every­one wants to win th­ese races and we are all so com­pet­i­tive.

Firstly be­cause there are left hand cor­ners and that suits me the best.
