MARC MARQUEZ has warned he will ’suffer’ at Mugello next week.
The Catalan cruised to glory at Le Mans and looked dominant throughout.
It was yet another show of force from the five-time world champion who also bagged wins in Jerez and Argentina.
However, with a trip to Italy next up on the calendar, Marquez isn’t too confident about getting a result at Ducati’s stomping ground.
“All are important and Mugello will be a race that apparently will not be like Le Mans and Jerez if we look at the history,” he said.
“MotoGP hero Marc Marquez says he could struggle at Mugello ”
“We will suffer more, last year we fell, but we were very well prepared to fight for victory.
“I will fight to the last lap and that’s where at least I have the motor to defend myself better this year.
“Last year I fought [Andrea] Dovizioso in many races and many won but not because I lost melee but because it was a circuit in which I suffered and still hopefully we can maintain the same dynamic as last year even if they beat us.”

Jorge Lorenzo, meanwhile, continues to flounder at Honda. He could only finish 11th at Le Mans.
But despite the challenging weekend, Lorenzo was keeping upbeat post race.
“11th place is not where we want to be but I saw progress,” he posted on social media.
“This makes me happy and gives me even more enthusiasm for the next races.
“It was the first weekend I finished a day in the top five, qualified in the top eight and you know, apart from Qatar where it was a slow race, this is the race where I finished closest to the winner.
“We’re learning more each weekend and race, it is just a matter of time.
“Thanks to the Repsol Honda Team for continuing to work hard and congratulations to Honda for 300 wins.”
