Marc Marquez has said that he has changed his riding style to deal with the demands of his wayward handling RC213V as he continues to believe a third consecutive MotoGP world title is possible.

Since disastrous back-to-back GPs in Mugello and Catalunya, where he crashed out of both races, Marquez has scored 90 points from a possible 100 at Assen, Sachsenring, Indianapolis and Brno as a switch to the 2014 chassis and changes to his riding approach brought an instant upswing in results.

Arriving in Silverstone 52 points behind Movistar Yamaha team-mates Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi, Marquez believes that even if world championship success 'will be difficult', he and the Repsol Honda team are working well to cure the majority of the machine's defects ahead of 2016.

"I think the level of the bike and how we are working with the team, we are closer," said Marquez at Silvertsone on Thursday. "Some circuits we have seen that maybe we are better and others not like Brno. We are working a lot and trying to avoid the problems of the bike.

"Also, I'm changing my riding style to try to avoid these problems. Every time we are getting closer but the important thing is we are working a lot for next season to try to get good information and change this character of the bike to have the best bike at every circuit. We know that this is impossible but we are close to Yamaha riders as you can see in the results.

"I need to give my one hundred percent and be there at the end of the race to see what happens. It's true that in Brno it's a circuit that we're normally struggling a lot. I was able to be there in second place and follow Jorge for some laps. Here, last year was a really good weekend for me. On Sunday Jorge was really strong but we will see the bumps on the track. Every year it is more bumpy. We will try to be there and fighting with more Yamaha riders and check how Dani's level is.

"The championship has not gone but of course it is difficult. 52 points between me and Valentino and Jorge is quite a lot but still we believe and still we are pushing. The most important thing is that I feel well now with the bike. I feel much better now than the beginning of the season. We must keep pushing and try to be there with them."

The Northamptonshire track has provided Marquez with a great deal of success in the past and he is hopeful of another close fight with the 'Factory' Yamahas.

"Since 2010 I came here with 125 and it was a good circuit for me. Then with Moto2 I struggled a little bit but in MotoGP in 2013 and 2014 it's been good years. We will see if again we need to battle with Jorge or Valentino."
