The Repsol Honda Team travel to England this week to take part in the tenth round of the 2023 season: The British Grand Prix.
During almost a month of inactivity, Marc Márquez has taken advantage of the summer break to rest, train and start preparing for the rest of the season. At Silverstone he has been on the podium 6 times: Third and 1st in 125cc, 3rd in Moto2 and two second places and a victory in MotoGP. Márquez will use the Grand Prix to continue working with his team and aims to improve both the performance of his Honda RC213V and his race results.
Joan Mir returns to action after the injury he sustained in June at the Italian Grand Prix. The rostrum is a pending target at the British Grand Prix, and he will also have to get back to speed after a spell on the sidelines. This weekend’s round is the first of the final 12 which close the 2023 MotoGP season.
“We have enjoyed an important Summer Break, a chance to reset and recover after a demanding start to the year. From the physical and mental side, I come back to the track refreshed and ready to work. I am looking forward to seeing everyone in the Repsol Honda Team again and understanding the work that has been done over the break. Silverstone is a circuit where I have had a lot of good battles in the past. The most important is to get back on the bike, get back to working and try to improve on how the first half of the year has been.”
“Our break was a bit longer than everyone else’s, but I am now fully recovered from the injury I suffered in Mugello. I’ve been back training and riding different kinds of bikes like normal for a few weeks now so I am feeling good physically. The goal for the weekend is to make the most of every session and get back into the mindset of MotoGP and racing after so many weeks away. It will be great to see everyone again and get back on the Honda RC213V.”
