Marquez positive despite UK nightmare

Honda MotoGP rider Marc Marquez says he is hoping to do well on the resurfaced Misano circuit after his recent Silverstone crash. 

Marquez was fighting for the lead with eventual winner Valentino Rossi in wet conditions at Silverstone when a small slip ended his race.

It was a disappointing end to the defending world champion's race especially after his return to form recently with two first and two second placed results. 

Due to him not being able to pick up points at Silverstone, Marquez has no chance of catching the championship leaders Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo mathematically. 

In a chat with Full Noise website, Marquez said that even though he was disappointed over crashing in his last race, the team were looking forward to this weekend's racing at Misano.

"Obviously I'm disappointed to have crashed out of the race in the UK, but I was pushing and this can happen when the weather is like that. 

"Of course the championship is getting further away from us but we were back fighting at the front and this is definitely a positive," Marquez said. 

"Now we head to Misano which is a pretty small and slow track. We were testing there before the summer break so I hope the data from that test can help us with the setting this weekend. 

"It's a delicate balance getting the bike right to suit the demands on braking at this twisty track and let's hope the weather is nice after our last race weekend." 

After the Misano event, the MotoGP championship moves to Spain for the Aragon GP on September 27.
