Marc Marquez will discover on Thursday whether he will face any punishment for the controversial collision with Dani Pedrosa in the Aragon Grand Prix. The Repsol Honda duo will meet race direction at Sepang ahead of this weekend’s race in Malaysia to discuss the incident which saw Pedrosa’s wheel sensor cable broken and Marquez is doing his best to focus on the Grand Prix ahead of him.
“Now we head to Malaysia for the first of the fly away races and I’m ready to get there! Sepang is a circuit I like, it’s the first track we were really able to test the Honda bike at so it will be nice to go back there and regain the feeling, and to see what we have learned over the season! I know there is a hearing set for Thursday with race direction to discuss the incident with Dani in Aragón, there is not much we can do, we need to wait and see what they say”.
Pedrosa admits he is still feeling the aftereffects of the Aragon incident but the 2012 Malaysian Grand Prix winner is hopeful that he will be fully fit come the weekend.
“I felt good in the last race riding at the front, and I look forward to finding the same feelings on the bike again in Sepang. The track has a little of everything, fast and slow corners, hard braking and long straights and the weather conditions make it hard work. Physically it’s been a hard week, I couldn’t walk for three days due to the pain in my hip, but it’s getting better every day so I’m hoping to be in perfect condition for the weekend”.
