Valentino Rossi also wanted to comment on the return to the track of Honda centaur Marquez

Marc Marquez’s return to the track in Aragon has generated a lot of hype in Spain: the Honda rider immediately appeared competitive despite months of stop and a bike that he still does not feel is his own, drawing applause from many riders and insiders.

Among them surprisingly were those of former rival Valentino Rossi, in Valencia for the GT championship test. “It didn’t go badly, did it? But Marquez is always very fast,” were the words of the centaur from Tavullia to Iberian reporters, reported by Corsedimoto.

Rossi hopes to score a podium finish in one of the two sprint races at Ricardo Tormo: “It’s obviously a track I know very well from racing there on two wheels. I’ve driven there many times and it’s where I completed my first test with Team WRT and Audi at the end of last year- The last Sprint Cup race in Misano went well, we got into the top 5. We will try to do better here.”
