Aragon MotoGP: Marquez tops shortened warm-up

Aragon MotoGP: Marquez tops shortened warm-up

It was a case of heart over head for Marc Marquez at Aragon on Sunday, the home star gambling on victory despite never feeling comfortable on his Repsol Honda and aware that a mistake could be calamitous for his title hopes.

"Even on the last lap I saw that he was only 0.8s [behind], I mean still he believed but I was trying to manage the risk with the distance". Then Marquez went up the inside of both Rossi and Lorenzo in one move but couldn't hold the line and ran way wide, but recovered quickly and finally made a move on Rossi in the corner on to the main straight.

"It was very demanding because in left corners I was feeling good, [but in] right corners I was really critical with the front and almost crashed a few times".

Maverick Vinales took pole position at the Aragon MotoGP on Saturday, ahead of Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi.

"I was good already from this morning and also because the leg, after two practice sessions, is in a good condition, I don't feel a lot of pain. He surprised me. His determination was incredible".

Slovenia overcome injuries to claim historic title in Dragic's swansong
Luka Doncic's injury threatened to derail Slovenia , who were up by eight midway through the third when the 18-year-old went down. The thriller at Sinan Erdem Dome, Istanbul, saw undefeated Slovenia taking on Serbia, who only lost once in group stage.

"I did that again for another time, of course when you do this kind of effort you stress the tyres more, you stress everything more".

Marquez said he was wary of Pedrosa late in the race, as he saw him closing in.

"Rossi made a unusual movement towards me, closing my space at a speed of 300 kilometers per hour.it's not good, but I managed to overcome it and able to compete for the podium, "said Pedrosa quoted from Sky Sports". "I was struggling, but I was pushing and giving everything". Marquez and Dovizioso were tied for the lead entering the weekend.

"We are progressing very quickly", Lorenzo said.

"This championship is really hard to understand, to manage". You can not have a zero in a race weekend.
