MotoGP Aragon: Marquez: Aragon suits my style

“Aragon is a circuit that I like more than Misano, and I think it suits my riding style better" - Marc Marquez.
Despite just one podium in the last four races, consistent top-five finishes and a constant stream of different winners means Marc Marquez's title lead has barely taken a dent.

48 points clear of then nearest rival Jorge Lorenzo at the start of the summer break, Marquez heads into this weekend's Aragon round with a 43-point advantage over closest competitor Valentino Rossi.

The Italian has beaten Marquez at all four races since the summer break, but there are only five rounds and a maximum of 125 points still available.

“Aragon is a circuit that I like more than Misano, and I think it suits my riding style better," declared Marquez, who was fourth at the San Marino round.

"That said, it's also true that a particularity of this year is that things may change a lot from race to race, so we'll see if we're able to manage things well and if we can have a good weekend.

"We'll approach the race ready to adapt to the situation we encounter, but of course we'll try to fight for the podium again in front of my home crowd and my fan club.”

Marquez fell early in last year's Aragon race, as he tried to chase down leader Jorge Lorenzo. "This one was completely my mistake," Marquez had said, after crashing out for the fifth time in 13 races.

Marquez seems to be the kind of racer that, no matter how many points he has in hand, he still needs to win occasionally, or his brain bursts out of his eye-socket and does a few laps of his skull. I can't see anyone but Rossi challenging from here, and even then, the odds are that Marquez will win the championship. If MM has one more win, with no DNFs, it's hard to see him losing the title.

ElbowDown93: Marquez will definitely want to finish ahead of Valentino this time around, i quite like the aspect of seeing a cornered Marquez. Anything can happen ..oh..can't wait..
I think Valentino and Jorge would LOVE to be CORNERED like [43-points-ahead] Marc !
