Márquez and Lorenzo return to Misano for San Marino GP

Reigning MotoGP World Champion Marc Márquez comes into the San Marino GP with a 78 point advantage in the overall standings.

Jorge Lorenzo holds three victories (in 2011, 2012 and 2013) and a further five podiums at Misano in MotoGP (second in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2014; third in 2016), and one more win in 250cc in 2007.

Marc Márquez

We arrive at Misano in a good way after some strong races for us and after a productive test. During the test we were able to try many things and get a good understanding of how the Honda is working around Misano this season. I am confident for the weekend but we will face strong opposition as always, especially after the test. Our approach doesn’t change, we have our own plan and we will work towards it and see what happens on Sunday.

Jorge Lorenzo

“Each day I am feeling stronger and able to train harder than the previous day and the time between races has helped.”

Jorge Lorenzo

Each day I am feeling stronger and able to train harder than the previous day and the time between races has helped. I am looking forward to getting back on the bike and seeing how I feel physically on the RC213V. Despite not completing the full test, we were able to find some good information to be able to start the weekend well. In the past Misano has been a good circuit for me so I am hopeful that this weekend we can continue to close the gap.
