Marc Marquez will be aiming to seal the crack in his 2014 MotoGP invincibility at this weekend's Silverstone round.

After winning all ten previous races the reigning champion was finally beaten, by Repsol Honda team-mate Dani Pedrosa, at Brno. The 21-year-old could now stamp out the ray of hope offered to his beleaguered rivals at this weekend's British MotoGP.

Victory would also make amends for a rare last lap defeat at the hands of Jorge Lorenzo one year ago, where Marquez defied a dislocated shoulder in warm-up to battle the Yamaha rider to the chequered flag.

"Brno was a difficult weekend but the most important thing is that we took important points," said Marquez, who finished fourth in the Czech Republic. "Also, I feel less pressure now as I know everyone was expecting me to win all of them, and it's the championship that's important, not winning every race!

"We had a good test on the Monday and then some time off after a hectic back-to-back schedule. Last year my race was affected by my crash in warm-up so this year I hope to be fully fit so I can give it 100% in the race!"

Marquez holds a huge 77-point lead over Pedrosa with seven rounds to go.
