According to Honda team manager Marc Marquez will also make a difference in Sepang.

Marc Marquez after his second place in Australia could repeat in Sepang: Alberto Puig, who in his usual post-Gp briefing doesn’t mince words, is certain of this. “When you have a rider like Marc, who is getting in shape and is clearly special, you can never leave him out of the equation. It won’t be easy, but we’ll go there and see what happens. The most important thing is that he is improving his condition, Honda has to give him the tools to do what he is capable of doing.”

Marquez at Phillip Island got the tire right: “Before the race it wasn’t a far-fetched choice, but it didn’t feel right. The rider knows what is the best tire and a special rider knows even better.” Thanks to centaur number 93, Honda sees the light again after a very difficult period: “We will continue to work for the future to bring the best possible bike to Marc and return the title to Honda. This is our commitment and our duty as a leading racing company.”
