Marquez: Sepang in past, focus on Valencia

Marc Marquez says he has moved on from the infamous Sepang clash with Valentino Rossi and is now concentrating on ending the season with a victory at Valencia.
Repsol Honda's Marc Marquez says he has moved on from his controversial clash with Valentino Rossi at Sepang and is now focused solely on winning the final MotoGP race of the season at Valencia.

Marquez crashed out of the Malaysian Grand Prix after contact was made with championship leader Rossi in a now infamous incident, with Rossi set to start from the back of the grid in the title finale on November 8 after receiving three Penalty Points as a result.

A war of words erupted between the premier class stars in the aftermath, with Marquez claiming Rossi had 'lost control' while The Doctor blamed outgoing champion Marquez for deliberately interfering with his race to hand an advantage to Jorge Lorenzo, who is seven points behind his team-mate going into the last round in Spain.

“During the whole weekend, I think we were really competitive and we had a good pace. I also have to congratulate Dani [Pedrosa] as he raced at a spectacular pace. And, of course, for claiming victory,” said Marquez.

“Everyone was able to see what happened in the race and I've said everything I had to say. Right now, I'm only thinking about Valencia, enjoying that GP and giving you all a good race.

“So this week, when I get home it's off to training hard, which is what I like best. Being able to work alongside my brother, Alex and focusing on some of the routines that we tend to do is what I'm mostly in the mood for now before travelling to Valencia,” added the 22-year-old in his official Repsol blog.

“The nicest thing about Cheste is that it's one of the circuits of the year in which we race in front of our own fans, and that's always special. Also, because it's the last one of the year, the energy there is always amazing, and that's something you notice every single day of the GP from the day you get there.”

Marquez may have moved on but for the thousands of race fans who now have a bitter taste in their mouth from his meddling in the out come of the world championship, will dislike him for the rest of his career.

Yeah right. Even when Rossi put the public and media's attention on him on Thursday at Sepang, he didn't give 2 monkeys and still went about trying to slow him down and ruin his race. It'll be the same story at Valencia if Valentino even manages to catch up to them.
