PROGRAMMING NOTE: The Red Bull Indianapolis GP will air LIVE on FOX Sports 1 on Sunday, August 18 in a four-hour programming block that starts at 11:00am ET.

‘Marquez Mania’ hit the Brickyard on Friday as Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez only furthered the argument that he’s already the class of the MotoGP field with another breathtaking performance.

Just 20 years of age, the Spanish class rookie swept both Friday free practices to kick off the Red Bull Indianapolis GP weekend in style.

Marquez’s rivals hoped to return from the summer break ready to meet his growing challenge. However, no one could match the Friday pace of the sport’s newest sensation, who opens the season’s second half leading the points and carrying consecutive victories into Indy.

The end result at Road America was fantastic for the whole team, really. Both for manufacturer and driver points.

It wasn’t really from being fastest on track – It was all about good strategy and fantastic work from the crew in the pits that did an absolutely brilliant second pit stop. That moved us from 7th and 8th to 1st and 3rd, which became 1-2 shortly after.

During the pit stop, our refueling time was much shorter because we didn’t have to take a full tank of gas like most of the other guys. But that all played into the strategy we chose earlier.

MotoGP World Championship leader Marc Marquez picked right up where he left off prior to the season’s summer break — on top of the world.

The 20-year-old rookie comes into the Red Bull Indianapolis GP with the points lead and riding two consecutive race wins. The Repsol Honda ace earned those victories while preseason title favorites Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa were ruled out and later hindered by broken collarbones, so this weekend’s meeting after a month-long break should be a bit more telling in terms of exactly where everyone stands as the season enters its second half.

While one sessions does not make a weekend, any thoughts that Marquez would back down now were quickly swatted away by the gifted youngster who boasts a full 0.3-second advantage in FP1, logging a fast time of 1:40.781.
