Marc Marquez is looking forward to the start of the new season, given that he has great expectations for what follows. This should be a good opportunity for the Spaniard to improve and show the full potential he is capable of.
There are many competitors this season and interesting faces on the Moto GP scene. "The start of another season is here, and you always get this excitement and feeling before you go racing again," said Marquez, as quoted by crash.net "We’ve had a busy off season where we have been gathering a lot of data and aiming for the future.
Now we must start and focus on the opening races and remember that racing and testing are very different. This year we have the new challenge of the Sprint on Saturday, a short and intense race that I am sure will bring the fans a lot of excitement.
I’m really looking forward to getting back on the Honda RC213V for the 11th season with the Repsol Honda Team."
Joan Mir and his expectations: It’s a moment I have dreamed of
As a new team member of Repsol Honda, Joan Mir is set to make his debut.
Mir is a huge optimist when it comes to taking on this challenge. Despite the fact that he is still young, he hopes he can demonstrate his qualities in the best way possible. We can expect a lot from the race in Portimao, which will be a great prelude to the racing season that lies ahead.
"My racing debut with the legendary colours of the Repsol Honda Team is now just a few days away. It’s a moment I have dreamed of, to line up on the grid as a Repsol Honda Team rider. There’s still work to be done, we still have some things to confirm and improve but racing brings a different kind of intensity.
Let’s see what we can do in Portimao, the important point is to keep building from where we finished the test and make consistent steps forward."
