Marc Marquez exclusive: Spanish star reveals favourite circuits

Published Add your comment

MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez revealed he is thrilled about the return of MotoGP to Argentina in an exclusive interview with GiveMeSport.

The Spanish superstar made it three wins from three at the end of April when he finished two seconds clear of Honda team mate Dani Pedrosa at the recently renovated Termas de Rio Hondo circuit, the first Argentinian race on the Moto GP calendar since 1999.

Kenny Roberts Jr. was the last winner back then, (a feat also achieved by his father in 1982) with the race being held at the Autodromo Juan y Oscar Galvez in Buenos Aires, his win ending a run of three consecutive victories by the then world champion Mick Doohan.

Marquez, a self confessed Barcelona football fan, told GiveMeSport ahead of round 6 at Mugello in Italy: "[It was] amazing, I love Termas de Rio Hondo circuit. The people were enthusiastic and the track was really awesome."

The Spaniard then went on to say: "Many riders are happy to come back there in the next [few] years."

When asked by GiveMeSport about which of the circuits on the MotoGP calendar are his favourites, the world champion not surprisingly responded: "Austin and Aragon."

Both circuits are recent additions to the calendar with Marquez winning both races staged in Austin at the Circuit of the Americas and he also won the 2013 race in Aragon, one of three races held in Spain.

Marquez is hoping for a sixth straight win this weekend at the Italian Grand Prix, a race that he failed to complete last year after crashing out with four laps to go.

Despite his heavy focus and commitments on race weekend the Spaniard still found time to share some wise words with his millions of fans aspiring to follow in his footsteps.

"They have to enjoy everyday, work hard and be patient. But enjoying what you are doing is the key."
