Marquez Keen To Bounce Back In Malaysia

Marc Marques has looked out of sorts recently.

Despite faltering in his past four starts, Marc Marquez is favoured to take out Sunday’s (AEST) Malaysian GP.

The Spanish rider has dominated the MotoGP in a fashion rarely seen before. After winning 11 of the opening 12 GPs, the 21-year-old has all of a sudden slipped out of form, making uncharacteristic mistakes and costly errors. After starting in pole position in last week’s Australian GP, Marquez seemed to be coasting to victory until a drivers error saw him crash out with just ten laps remaining.

Marquez’s error at Phillip Island paved the way for veteran rider Valentino Rossi  to claim his second win of the season and maintain his second placing in the Driver’s Championship. Hot on Rossi’s heels is his Yamaha teammate Jorge Lorenzo , who finished second behind Rossi in the race Down Under. Lorenzo currently sits eight points behind “The Doctor” in third position, and he’ll be out to cut down that margin come Sunday.

With Marquez experiencing a streak of poor form, punters are a bit hesitant to take the short odds. His Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa is one rider that has been specked at odds, currently , due to his impressive record at the track. Pedrosa has won the past two Malaysian GPs ever since the race tragically claimed the life of Marco Simoncelli in 2011.
