Alex Marquez is targeting a return to winning ways as the 2020 MotoGP Esports series heads to the virtual Adriatic coastline at Misano this weekend.

Eleven riders will compete in the fourth round of the season on what would have been round six of the season at Le Mans, with Repsol Honda entering a full strength team featuring both Alex and Marc Marquez.

The younger Marquez, who won the opening round of the series at Mugello and scored podiums at the Red Bull Ring and Jerez, admits the real thing isn’t one of his favoured circuits but is more confident for his chances from the comfort of his own sofa.

“Time to go again! Misano has not always been one of my favourite circuits in real life but I think it will be a good race with the rest of the MotoGP riders. You can get a little bit creative with some of the lines you take and there’s more chance to avoid crashes at Turn One. 

“I want to win again, in Jerez I think I had a good chance to do this without the crash at the start. No matter what, I’m sure it’ll be another funny show for all the fans.”

While six-time MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez has shown speed in the events so far, he is yet to join his brother on the podium, a duck he is keen to break this weekend

“I have been practicing a little more than the previous races. With the new game I am much closer because we all started playing at more or less the same time. 

“We have had a lot of fun and I’ve really enjoyed all of the races because it’s more relaxed than in the paddock so we are able to share some jokes with everyone. Let’s see what happens in Misano, the last time I was there we had a great battle with Quartararo.”
