Round 3Triple Victory for Marc, Triple Podium for Dani

It’s been another fantastic weekend for the team in Argentina with a second successive 1-2, how can you explain this current performance?

We are living in a “magical moment” and couldn't dream of a better start to the season! This is the result of the hard work, on track by the riders and their crew, and at home by all the HRC engineers. I'd like to thank Marc, Dani and everybody in HRC for doing such a great job!

Marc once again showed dominance during the whole weekend proving an incredible ability to be fast at a new track from the beginning and seemed to control the race perfectly?

It looks like it’s easy for Marc to learn the secrets of a new circuit. Last season he won in Austin and this season here in Argentina, a good record for such a young rider! Today he was simply perfect, managing the tires in the first part of the race and then pushing hard to create a gap big enough to win with a margin. He is young but… he looks like a real expert!

Marc has become the first rider since Valentino Rossi in 2001 to win the opening three premier class races of the season, and all from

pole - a feat not matched since Giacomo Agostini back in 1971. Another record for the young World Champion!

Marc is re-writing the history of this sport, breaking record after record! I honestly don’t know when he will stop surprising us!

Also for Dani, he has now finished on the podium at the last seven MotoGP races - his longest sequence of successive podium finishes

since 2012 - and he now moves ahead of Alex Barros, into third place, on the top ten list of all-time point scorers in the premier class. What must he do to make that extra step and take his first victory of 2014?

Dani is doing a great job, and I believe that with a better start he would have been able to fight with Marc to the end of the race. I think he just has to continue working as he is doing now, hard work always pays off.

How do you see Jerez – a track where Dani and Jorge are very, very fast?

I hope it will be a great show for all the Spanish fans! They are lucky to have three compatriots almost always on top in MotoGP.
