Alex Marquez (Repsol Honda Team)- What to Expect?
After a few days of rest and recovery, I am feeling better and my left wrist is feeling stronger. Portimao is a new circuit for almost everyone this weekend so it will be interesting to see how we all adapt and learn it. It’s a very physical track with a lot of blind corners so I think it will produce some very exciting racing. I’m looking forward to it.
Stefan Bradl (Repsol Honda Team)- What to Expect?
When I tried the RC213V at Portimao during the test it was like a whole new circuit from when I raced there before, the level of the bike and also the electronics in MotoGP makes it completely different. I am looking forward to the weekend, the track is enjoyable to ride and I want to finish the season well. It has been very busy, especially these last three races, but I have enjoyed myself a lot.
