Ahead of the eighth round of the MotoGP season at Assen this weekend, championship leader Marc Marquez has said he knows his winning streak cannot last forever.
The twenty-one year old Spaniard has so far been unbeaten in MotoGP this year, taking home maximum points from each of the season’s seven races so far. In the last two races, Marquez has faced some tough challenges towards the end of the race, including his team-mate nearly taking him out in Catalunya.
Many pundits are predicting the Repsol Honda man’s streak to come to an end this weekend with Assen a circuit that has been kind to Yamaha in previous years. Marquez admits that his team know his winning momentum cannot last forever but it sounds like he’s going to enjoy it while it lasts!
“We are still in enjoying a really good momentum but we know it can’t go on forever!” Marquez said. I really like Assen and have had some good results in the lower categories, and last year we took second in my first visit there on the MotoGP machine. The weather is always unpredictable there so we will, as always, work hard from the first session to find a good setup”
