Álex Márquez relishing RED BULL RING Return
Álex Márquez is relishing the chance to race at the Red Bull Ring for the second weekend running as the MotoGP class reassemble in Spielberg for the Grand Prix of Austria. The LCR Honda CASTROL rider enjoyed a fine return to action last weekend, getting quickly back into the groove after the summer break by claiming a deserved top-10 finish in the Styrian GP.
The Spaniard was competitive throughout the weekend and caught the eye in qualifying as he topped the timesheets in Q1 to progress to the final qualifying shootout. Alex will look to build on that performance level and believes he and his team are now firmly headed in the right direction.
“Now we have our second weekend in Austria. I’ve had a nice week staying here because I really love this area and feel great here. I had good first race and really enjoyed it, which is important to go into this second race 100% motivated. I felt really great on the bike last weekend, although there are still a lot of things to improve. I think we are working in a good direction and we are in good shape, so we just need to see how we can improve and how our evolution will be. I’m happy to have another weekend here and we will try to go for it from the beginning and be prepared for all weather conditions.” – Álex Márquez
