Moto GP 2014 Round 5 Le Mans ***SPOILER***

So MM93 has done nothing short of dominate thus far, can he continue if so just how many poles/wins can he get this year? I personally think this will be a another record year for him, hard to top his stellar rookie season last year but it looks like he's on his way of doing just that. JL99 has certainly faulted and is in some real trouble, he's NOT a quitter that's for sure, VR46 off to a great start and is running at the front, i hope he can continue!!

Circuit Info:
Length: 4.185 m / 2.600 miles

Introduction:
Introduction:
Built in 1965 around the existing 24-Hour track, the Le Mans Bugatti Grand Prix race circuit lies 5km south of the city of Le Mans and 200km south-west of Paris. The venue has hosted Grand Prix since the late sixties but a serious accident to Spanish rider Alberto Puig in 1995 saw it struck off the calendar until 2000 whilst stringent safety improvements were carried out.

Hayden provides update on condition
Nicky Hayden has provided an update on his condition ahead of the Monster Energy Grand Prix de France, having missed the post race Monday test at Jerez due to swelling around an old wrist injury.
The Drive M7 Aspar rider saw a wrist injury – which required surgery in 2013 - become inflamed over the weekend of the Spanish Grand and was forced to sit out the day of testing in the south of Spain.

Hayden has been for a check-up back in the States and fully expects to be riding at Le Mans.

He said, “Basically the doctors here in California agreed with the doctors from Clinica Mobile and after doing some MRI and scans it is nothing so serious. Seems that I just irritated the joint somehow during qualifying (in Jerez), though it is not clear how that caused the inflammation in the joint which caused pain and swelling of the hand.”

“They did some treatment and injections to calm it down and now it is matter of doing therapy and rest to let it heal for Le Mans. We hope it returns back to normal very soon. I’m ok back home doing therapy and trying to prepare for Le Mans.”

Five out of five for Marquez at Le Mans?
The MotoGP™ field returns to France this weekend for the fifth round of 2014. Reigning World Champion Marc Marquez has dominated proceedings so far this year, already making him the 16th most successful rider for race wins in the history of the World Championship.
Based on results from both qualifying and races so far this year, rivals of Marquez are likely to be wondering what can possibly be done to halt the 21-year-old’s charge. He has become the first rider to win the opening quartet of premier class races from pole position since MotoGP™ Legend Giacomo Agostini in 1971 and, amongst other things, is the first rider to clinch five consecutive pole positions since Casey Stoner in 2011. On top of this, one has to look back to Valentino Rossi in 2005 to the last time one rider carried such a points lead after four races, as Marquez now leads by 28.

Jerez also saw Marquez winning at the Andalucian venue for the very first time in the World Championship, meaning there is no longer a single race track on the calendar on which he is yet to claim a victory. Should he also reach the top step of the podium at Le Mans this weekend, the Repsol Honda Team man will become the youngest ever rider to win five consecutive Grands Prix in the premier class; the mantle would be taken away from Englishman Mike Hailwood, who achieved the feat in 1962.

With Dani Pedrosa’s second position in the classification sealing a one-two for Honda, Valentino Rossi leads the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP charge from third place as he continues to use a new chassis, based on improving braking stability. Jorge Lorenzo is now up to fifth place in the standings and intends to work more around the Soft compound tyre, while Ducati Team’s Andrea Dovizioso was in the news last week as his management confirmed talks with Suzuki for a possible ride in 2015.

Danilo Petrucci will not be racing in France, as the IodaRacing Project rider recovers from an operation on his right wrist following a heavy accident in the Jerez Warm-Up session. In fact, he was the third MotoGP™ rider to undergo surgery last week, as both LCR Honda MotoGP’s Stefan Bradl and the aforementioned Pedrosa were treated for arm pump. Both now hope to achieve the highest possible levels of fitness as they head to Le Mans – where 12 months ago Pedrosa was able to claim victory.

Last year, the French Grand Prix was affected by inclement weather conditions; perhaps a repeat could be something to prevent the Marquez charge. Considering a quarter of the season will already have gone by the time the chequered flag falls on Sunday afternoon, the rest of the field will certainly be hoping that this is the case…

Opening MotoGP™ practice for the Monster Energy Grand Prix de France commences at 9:55am local time (GMT +2) on Friday, with the 28-lap race beginning at 2pm on Sunday afternoon. Is more history set to be made in Maine?

Honda Racing Corporation renew with Marc Marquez until end of 2016
Honda Racing Corporation is pleased to announce the renewal of the contract with 2013 World Champion, Marc Marquez, for a further two years.
The young Spaniard took the MotoGP World by storm winning the Championship in his rookie season last year. It was a priority for HRC to re-sign the young sensation who has won every race so far this season – all from pole position. Since joining the Factory outfit – the Repsol Honda Team – Marc has finished on the podium in all but two of his twenty-two MotoGP races. He’s taken ten victories, six second’s and four third’s. He’s also accumulated thirteen pole positions in the premier class.
He arrives at this weekend’s French GP leading the Rider’s Championship by 28 points after just four rounds.

Shuhei Nakamoto – HRC Executive Vice President:
“We are very satisfied to have reached an agreement to keep Marc in the team for a further two seasons. Of course as Honda we wanted to keep Marc in our family and he also wanted to stay with us so… it was natural to renew the contract even if it is very early in the season! He is enjoying a fantastic start to 2014 and even though he is still learning, his ability to absorb information and adapt to the machine is remarkable”

Marc Marquez:
“I am very happy to announce my renewal with HRC. I had always dreamt about being part of the Repsol Honda Team, and thanks to Honda the dream came true a year and a half ago. Everything happened very quickly last season, and I would have never imagined that I could achieve what we did. Becoming World Champion during my first season was another dream turned into reality. It is a great honour to be a part of the Honda family and I’m glad to remain with this special group of people for another two seasons”

History of GP racing at Le Mans: What you need to know

The Le Mans circuit has one of the longest traditions of Grand Prix racing on the current MotoGP™ schedule.
- Le Mans has hosted a Grand Prix event on 26 previous occasions, including the Grand Prix ‘Vitesse du Mans’ in 1991, which was the only season when two Grand Prix events have been held in France in the same year.

- Le Mans was first used for a Grand Prix event in 1969, when the 500 race was won by Giacomo Agostini, who lapped all other riders on his MV Agusta.

- The Le Mans circuit has been used for the MotoGP™ event for the last 14 years in succession, starting in 2000.

Since the introduction of the four-stroke MotoGP™ formula in 2002, Honda have had six wins at Le Mans, Yamaha five and Suzuki one, in 2007 with Chris Vermeulen – Suzuki’s only GP victory in the four-stroke MotoGP™ era to date.

- The riders with most victories at Le Mans are Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa, who have each stood on the top step of the podium on four occasions; Lorenzo has had a single win in the 250 class to add to his three MotoGP™ wins, whereas Pedrosa has won once in the 125 class, twice in 250s and last year in the MotoGP™ class for the first time.

- There have been five GP wins at Le Mans by French riders: Jean Aureal won the 125 race in 1969, Guy Bertin the 125 race in 1979, Patrick Fernandez the 350 race in 1979, Mike di Meglio the 125 race in 2008 and Louis Rossi the Moto3 race in 2012.

- In addition to Le Mans, there have been seven other circuits that have hosted the French GP (the figure in brackets is the number of times each circuit has hosted the French Grand Prix): Paul Ricard (13), Clermont-Ferrand (10), Nogaro (2), Reims (2), Rouen (2), Albi (1) and Magny-Cours (1).

Good new for VR46
Rossi aims to stay with Yamaha for two more years
In Thursday’s pre-event press conference at the Monster Energy Grand Prix de France, Movistar Yamaha MotoGP rider Valentino Rossi expressed his intention to stay in MotoGP™ for two more years.

The nine-time World Champion, who made his Grand Prix debut in 1996 and has been racing in the premier class since 2000, is currently in the second season of a two-year contract with Yamaha having returned to the Japanese factory from a spell with Ducati.

Over recent months Rossi has hinted that he would like to continue racing beyond 2014, but on Thursday in Le Mans he provided his most positive assertion to date regarding his future.

Asked directly about his contract situation Rossi revealed that he is in a positive frame of mind about negotiations to remain in MotoGP. He said: “Last year I had some good races, one victory, but in the second part of the season I was a bit too far from the top three. So I wanted to see if this year would be any better.”

“Sincerely I feel better and I am enjoying it a lot, to continue to race and to work with Yamaha and my team. So my project is to make another contract for two seasons and I think in the next weeks, during the next races we will talk with Yamaha in order to continue.”

Marquez in charge on Friday morning in France
As the premier class action at the Monster Energy Grand Prix commenced on Friday morning, Marc Marquez set the pace for the MotoGP™ field, with Dani Pedrosa and Valentino Rossi also in the top three.
Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) led in the final stages and increased his pace further in the final seconds to lead by 0.189s from teammate Pedrosa with a 1’34.328 best time. Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) was 0.253s behind in third as the fast times came at the end of the session.

Rossi’s colleague Jorge Lorenzo had looked like he would end the outing in second place but was bumped down to fourth by Pedrosa and Rossi’s late improvements.

Alvaro Bautista (GO&FUN Honda Gresini) and Stefan Bradl (LCR Honda MotoGP) were fifth and sixth respectively, with Bradl having led for much of the practice.

The top ten was completed by Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team), Pol Espargaro (Monster Yamaha Tech3), Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing) and Aleix Espargaro (NGM Forward Racing), with that leading group of ten riders split by just 0.745s.

There was a crash for Monster Yamaha Tech3’s Bradley Smith at turn 9 early on but he was ok and returned to the track on his second bike to finish 11th.

Marquez on the pace on Friday afternoon


As the MotoGP™ action on the first day of the 2014 Monster Energy Grand Prix de France concluded at Le Mans, Marc Marquez outpaced his fellow premier class riders, leading the way from Andrea Iannone and Alvaro Bautista in FP2.
Having also topped the timesheet in the morning session, Marquez quickened the pace in the afternoon sunshine, registering a 1’33.452 best time, which is under the fastest lap in a race at Le Mans set by Dani Pedrosa in 2011.

Behind Repsol Honda man Marquez in FP2 was the impressive Iannone (Pramac Racing) who appears to be enjoying his riding more than ever this season. He was just 0.007s behind Marquez whilst GO&FUN Honda Gresini rider Bautista was just over 0.2s down.

Making up for a big crash in FP1, Bradley Smith (Monster Yamaha Tech3) was fourth best with a time less than 0.5s off Marquez’ pace – whilst Pedrosa was fifth with a similar pace to Smith.

Stefan Bradl (LCR Honda MotoGP), Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP), Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) and Aleix Espargaro (NGM Forward Racing) were also within a top ten which was completed by Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP). Rossi produced a slight, late improvement to move up from 11th, despite a run off track towards the end of the session.

A crash for Moto2™ 2013 Le Mans race winner Scott Redding (GO&FUN Honda Gresini) with 15 minutes to go disrupted his FP2 workout at turn 9 but he was not hurt and went straight back out on a second bike. A long run-off around turn 7 (Museum Corner) saw the older Espargaro brother do well to keep bike upright through the gravel.


Marquez on the trail of Hailwood, Agostini, Doohan and other greats

Victory would make him the youngest ever rider, at the age of 21 years and 90 days, to win five successive races in the premier class, taking the record from Mike Hailwood who was 22 years and 160 days old when he won five successive races in the 500 class in 1962, riding an MV Agusta.

- By winning in France, he could become the first rider since Valentino Rossi on a Yamaha in 2008 to win five successive MotoGP™ races.

- He could become the first rider since Giacomo Agostini in 1972, riding an MV Agusta, to win the opening five races of the year in the premier class.

- If Marquez qualifies on pole and wins the race, this would be the first time that a rider has won five or more successive premier class races from pole since Mick Doohan, on a Honda, won ten successive races from pole in 1997.

- If Marquez is the fastest qualifier at Le Mans, this will mark the first time that a rider has started from pole at six or more consecutive MotoGP™ races since Casey Stoner was on pole at seven successive races in 2008, riding a Ducati.

DP doesn't seem up to it, I hope his arm gets better soon. Vale bearly made it to his target, which was 5th position, but he always has a good pace in the race. I hope we have an exciting race tomorrow

New pole record for Marquez at Le Mans
Having secured MotoGP™ pole again at the Monster Energy Grand Prix de France Marc Marquez will head the grid for Sunday’s fifth race of 2014, with the front row also featuring Pol Espargaro and Andrea Dovizioso.
After the first flying laps Marquez was immediately top with a 1'32.567, to set a new fastest ever lap of Le Mans, the World Champion then improving to a remarkable 1'32.042 time to maintain his 100% qualifying record in 2014.

Repsol Honda’s Marquez was 0.692s clear of rookie Espargaro with the latter securing his best MotoGP grid result to date. Espargaro’s performance at his team’s home round will fill him with confidence ahead of just his fifth premier class race.

Making good use of the extra soft tyre Ducati Team’s Andrea Dovizioso qualified 0.713s behind Marquez to take the final spot on the front row.

The second row features Stefan Bradl (LCR Honda MotoGP), who has recovered quickly from arm pump surgery since Jerez, with Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) reaching his personal target of qualifying in the top five as he slots in behind the German.

Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) was 0.857s off pole in sixth place but he will still be confident of a good race at a venue where he has a strong record.

Making up an all Spanish the third row are Alvaro Bautista (GO&FUN Honda Gresini), top Open rider Aleix Espargaro (NGM Forward Racing) and Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team).

The fourth row meanwhile comprises Bradley Smith (Monster Yamaha Tech3), Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing) and Cal Crutchlow (Ducati Team), with Iannone briefly flashing up in second place provisionally before his lap time was cancelled as he exceeded the track limits.

Marquez charges to fifth consecutive pole
After dominating the Monster Energy Grand Prix de France weekend so far, Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez recorded his fifth pole of the season - setting the fastest lap ever on two wheels at the Le Mans circuit.
Teammate Dani Pedrosa will start from the third row of the grid in ninth position after struggling somewhat in qualifying.

Marquez wasted no time to set a fast time on his first run in the sunny conditions of Le Mans. However, on his second exit of Q2 Marc bettered his own time by half a second and lapped the 4.185km circuit in a new record time of 1’32.042, which was 0.692 faster than anyone else, and beat Pedrosa’s record time from 2008 by 0.605s (1’32.647).

Marquez commented, "I'm very happy to be on pole and also with the gap between myself and second place on the timesheet. Tomorrow will be interesting as my main rivals - Dani, Jorge (Lorenzo) and Valentino (Rossi) - are not on the front row but on rows two and three. However, I know they will be there in the battle and we must be prepared. Starting from pole is an advantage and I will try to capitalise from it and give 100% - as always - to fight for the win!”

It was a tougher session for teammate Pedrosa who had been fast all weekend but was unable to push in hard qualifying. Despite being the fastest rider in the speed trap with a top speed of 309.7km/h, Pedrosa was only able to qualify ninth for tomorrow’s 28 lap race with a time of 1’33.023.

“I’m riding a little smoother this weekend and not so aggressive, due to my injured forearm, and when I wanted to push to improve my times I wasn’t really able to. I think that in general we have done a good job in practice and I will try to get a good start in the race, because I am very far back. It will be important to bring the tyre temperature up on the warm-up lap and try to overtake some riders in the opening laps,” said Pedrosa

Rossi and Lorenzo on second row
Movistar Yamaha MotoGP riders Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo will start Sunday’s Monster Energy Grand Prix de France race from the second row with Rossi in fifth and Lorenzo in sixth position.
An intense 15-minute qualifying session saw both riders hold provisional positions on the front row as the lap times tumbled, only to be denied in the last moments. Their final times on the second row were just a tenth of a second from second place.

Rossi stated, “I’m quite happy, especially after Friday which was a disaster. I wasn't able to ride the bike in a good way then, but today with my team we improved the setting a lot and I’m satisfied. I’m always fast; I have a good pace and a good setting so I like the bike. In the qualifying I had the potential to be on the front row but at the end it's ok like this.”

“I’m in fifth ahead of Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa and I think they will be great rivals. Marc Marquez is also very fast, but I can fight with them!”

Rossi’s teammate Lorenzo commented, “It’s been the opposite of Jerez, here we have good pace but we couldn't make a very fast lap time. I didn't make a perfect lap and just by one tenth I couldn’t be in second place. For the race we have more options than the last races so I’m going to try and finish on the podium. We have to pay attention in the first laps because everyone wants to overtake but I think we can keep our place and move up.”

Dovizioso on front row and happy with pace
Ducati Team’s Andrea Dovizioso qualified on the front row of the grid at the Monster Energy Grand Prix de France and is confident about his race pace.
The Italian rider notched the Italian factory’s first front row grid result of 2014 with a 1’32.755 lap to take third behind pole man Marc Marquez and rookie Pol Espargaro. Dovizioso trailed Marquez by 0.7s but the World Champion was on record pace around the 4.2km circuit.

Dovizioso was pleased with the grid position, but was more satisfied with his overall preparations and pace before Sunday’s fifth race of the year.

Summing up Saturday’s action he stated, “I’m so happy about the first row but also about our lap time. 1’32.7 is really fast and we got a good feeling before qualifying. Our pace with the hard tyres is quite fast and is close to the fastest riders.”

“It confirms we have improved and specifically improved the steering of the bike. It will be very difficult as many riders have a similar pace, but this is our best ever condition for a race. We have a good chance to fight in this race and here will be a bit better than Jerez. We can be close to the fight for the podium. We’re sill not quite on the same level as the other riders but we are getting

First front row for Tech 3’s Espargaro
Saturday at Le Mans saw rookie Pol Espargaro secure second on the grid for the Monster Energy Grand Prix de France - his team’s home event.
The Moto2™ World Champion put in a 1’32.734 late in the session to push Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) down to third. That lap was 0.692s down on pole man Marc Marquez but still gave Espargaro his first front row start in the premier class.

Espargaro’s Monster Energy Tech 3 teammate Bradley Smith qualified in tenth but was just over 0.3s down on this colleague.

The Spaniard commented, “For me it is my first small victory. We worked so hard to be competitive and finally we are here. We put in a lot of effort in the pre-season and the first races and it is such a great reward to get this at the team’s home round. I know that it was just one lap and our rhythm is not as high as the other guys. But starting from second will give me some strength for the race.”

He added, “We have to be realistic about the podium though. Our rhythm is not as high, maybe in a few faces we can think about the podium. I will obviously try and push my hardest but for sure Jorge Lorenzo’s rhythm and speed is very high.”
