Marc Marquez's rivals are aiming to take advantage of the uncharacteristic layout of the Bugatti circuit at Le Mans and unpredictable weather conditions as they seek to halt the Spaniard's early season domination at the French MotoGP Sunday. Defending champion Marquez, who Thursday penned a two-year extension with Honda until the end of 2016, has won all four races this campaign – a victory Sunday would see him match Italian great Giacomo Agostini's five straight wins to open the 1972 season. Marquez has finished on the podium in 20 of his 22 MotoGP races, notching up 10 victories to date but has yet to win in France.Two-time world champion Lorenzo is also a three-time winner at Le Mans but has endured a sluggish start to the season, leaving him fifth, a staggering 65 points adrift of Marquez.
