After winning eleven from eleven (Marc – ten, Dani – one) the Honda riders will both be looking for their maiden victory in the MotoGP class at the Silverstone circuit. Championship leader, Marc, has celebrated three podiums in four visits to Silverstone, including a victory in the 125cc class in 2010 and a second place finish in MotoGP last year. Dani, who lies second in the Championship, will be looking for back-to-back wins after he dominated the Czech race nine days ago, and has celebrated podium finishes in Silverstone the past two years (two third places).

Silverstone has a rich racing heritage stretching back over 60 years and has become an iconic motorsport venue. Built on an former airfield, the 5.9km track is popular with the riders and is one of the fastest circuits on the calendar. This is the fifth year that the paddock will visit Silverstone since it replaced Donington in 2010.

TEAM QUOTES

Marc Marquez
Championship Standing: 1st - 263 points
“Brno was a difficult weekend but the most important thing is that we took important points. Also, I feel less pressure now as I know everyone was expecting me to win all of them, and it’s the Championship that’s important, not winning every race! We had a good test on the Monday and then some time off after a hectic back-to-back schedule. Last year my race was affected by my crash in warmup so this year I hope to be fully fit so I can give it 100% in the race!”

Dani Pedrosa
Championship Standing: 2nd - 186 points
“I’m feeling in good momentum at the moment after winning in Brno and then we had a positive test on the Monday. It was a gruelling few weeks with two races in a row and so this past week it’s been good to recharge the batteries. Last year in Silverstone I was out of the battle with Marc and Jorge so this year I want to be sure to be up there with them! This is a fast track with many changes of direction and you need to find a balance for the set up to suit both the slow and the fast corners. The weather in Britain can always be temperamental also, so we’ll have to keep an eye on that!”
