The challenges come thick and fast for Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS rider Álex Márquez, as he prepare for back-to-back Moto2 races in Argentina and America.
Álex Márquez is aiming for a trouble free second round to fire some early momentum into his campaign after a race crash in Qatar ruled him out of top 10 contention.
The Termas de Rio Honda circuit presents Márquez with the perfect opportunity to restore any lost confidence on a track where he finished on the podium in the inaugural Termas de Rio Hondo Moto3 race in 2014.
Álex Márquez: “Despite the end result not being what we wanted, I left Qatar thinking I still made a really good job with the team and how we worked to improve the bike. The biggest area we improved was a chatter issue and before my crash I was happy with my rhythm in the race. So we can go into this weekend optimistic because I really like this track a lot. A big motivation this weekend is to improve my qualifying because there is so much fast talent in Moto2 now that if you are down the grid it makes your job very difficult”.
