Round 10Third Consecutive Win for Marc, Third 1-2 Finish for the Team

The Repsol Honda Team came back strong after the summer break with the third one-two finish of the season in Indianapolis (victory for Marc and second for Dani). Isn't this a perfect way to start this important period of the Championship with three races in a row?

Absolutely! Indy has been a great weekend for us! Marc has continued showing his excellent form and Dani has done an unbelievably good race considering his physical condition. We couldn’t be more happy!

Marc has once again been the man to beat in US. He dominated all the practice sessions and controlled the race on his way to his third consecutive win of the season. It looks like he doesn’t feel any pressure, he wins when he has to and takes every opportunity to increase his gap now that his main rivals (Dani and Jorge) are still not at their 100%.

So far Marc is doing an incredibly good job and we are very pleased to see him breaking all rookie records in MotoGP! It will surely be more difficult when Dani and Jorge are 100% fit, but the speed and consistency he has still astonishes us.

Dani also showed his great determination with just two laps remaining to finish in front of Lorenzo. How was his physical condition in Indianapolis?

Dani’s collarbone is still not 100% healed, but he has been able to manage the pain and the lack of strength doing a kind of miracle! Let’s hope in Brno he will feel stronger and better as he deserves to continue the season at his best!

Yamaha tested in Brno few weeks ago. Do you think it will be a big advantage for them this weekend for the race?

For sure, at least in FP1 Jorge and Vale will have a kind of advantage, but I believe that our team will be able to do a good job as they always do and prepare the set up of the bike as quick as possible. Brno is a different circuit compared to the last three we have raced, and it will be interesting to see what we can do there. Last year it was one of the most exciting races of the season, with Dani and Jorge fighting until the end, and Dani making a great pass in the last chicane. Let’s hope to see a great show again!
