Marc Márquez

Marc Márquez is the rider with the most wins at the Termas de Río Hondo circuit: He has emerged victorious twice –in 2014 and 2016– from the four Grands Prix held there.

The reigning MotoGP World Champion has a perfect pole position record at the Argentinian track, with four from as many appearances.

Dani Pedrosa has two podiums from his three races at the track: Second in 2014 and third in 2016. He did not take part in the 2015 Argentinian GP.

Following the Qatar GP, Repsol Honda lead the team standings with 29 points.

“We started the season with a great race and a close podium finish in Qatar, and we had a positive test in Jerez last week. I feel good at the moment, happy with my bike and with how my team is working, but we’re just at the beginning of what will surely be a tough season. We must wait and see how it goes at different circuits, starting with Termas this Sunday. I like the Argentinian track and I enjoy the atmosphere with the fans, who are always very passionate and supportive, but we must not lower our guard. After the excitement of the first race, it’s now time to be calm, concentrate, and work hard to try and be faster. I think this Championship is very open, with many strong rivals that can fight for the victory on Sunday. At the moment everything seems very equal, and during the season we’ll see who is able to improve and to consistently stay at the front.”

“I look forward to going to Argentina to resume working with my team and prepare for Sunday’s race. In Qatar we didn’t get the result we were expecting and were capable of achieving, but we know the potential is there, which gives us confidence. In Argentina we’ll keep working with this positive attitude. The track conditions at Termas may be challenging at the start of the weekend but they’ll be the same for everyone, and they usually improve over the weekend. We’ll work on our bike to be ready for whatever conditions we have for the race, and then we’ll give 100 per cent when the lights go off.”
