SportMotoGPMartín: “Fighting with Márquez produces butterflies in the stomach”

Martín: “Fighting with Márquez produces butterflies in the stomach”

As soon as the Austrian race was over, in which Jorge Martín managed to reach the podium from pole in a chaotic finish, the man from Madrid posted a photo with Marc Márquez on his social networks, assuring that it was a pride to fight with the Honda rider.

This Friday, at Silverstone , Martín achieved the third fastest time and showed that on a track other than the Austrian one, where he has always done well, he is also capable of riding fast, at least for one lap.

“Being in MotoGP is a dream. Sometimes I don’t believe it and it was the first time I had the opportunity to fight Marc. We went three laps hand in hand, passing each other. It was nice and I am proud to have come this far and fight with one of the greatest in this sport. The truth is that I had butterflies in my stomach”, admitted the young Ducati rider.

At the end of the first day, Martín has and the provisional pass to Q2 in search of what would be his fourth pole position of the season.

“The day has given us more than I expected, especially being Friday. The expectations are high for coming from where we come from, but I think more about Sunday. But I have felt comfortable from the first moment and when I have put the new wheel I have gone fast”, he valued.

“The sensations are very good with the bike, in each track that I arrive I am in the top 10 and now that I feel good physically I can give a little more. With the team we get to know each other better and we understand each other very well”.

For now, Martín doesn’t want to think about his options to get back on pole.

“I don’t know, we have to wait for tomorrow. There is a lot of margin, removing the T2 I am very strong. One lap I’m competitive. I’m not obsessed with pole position, the important thing is Sunday”.

Martín is one of the riders who changes few things on the bike and continues with the base that worked together with the team in the pre-season tests.

“We worked on the base of the bike in preseason in Qatar . Since the first race the bike has always been very the same. I am not a rider who changes many things and this bike allows me to get to the circuits and be able to go fast without changing almost anything”, settled.
