Marc Marquez ready for counteroffensive with Pecco Bagnaia
The centaur from Cervera congratulated Pecco but promises battle
It must be hard, for a champion of Marc Marquez’s caliber, to see someone else celebrate the world title. And in his Spain, to boot. The ‘Cabroncito’s’ season, which started very late due to the endless convalescence linked to four shoulder operations, ended with a fall.
The centaur from Cervera took stock of his year, already looking to the future. When he will try, in his own words, to give battle to the newly crowned champion on the Ducati.
“Today Pecco rode as stiff as a post. He did what he had to, and it’s normal that he was tense, but he won the championship in Malaysia: starting eleventh, taking a risk, fighting with Bastianini and winning was like banging a fist on the table hard. He deserves to be world champion because he had a great second half of the season. When you are fast you can win as many races consecutively as he did. I think it will not be the only championship he will win, because he is a driver who can handle difficult situations. We will try to make it difficult for him going forward,” the Iberian rider told Marca.es.
After hitting a 125 world championship in 2010 and a Moto2 one in 2012, Marc Marquez officially debuted in MotoGp in 2013 on a Honda. Already in his first year in the top MotoGP category, he won the championship ahead of Jorge Lorenzo and teammate Daniel Pedrosa. From 2014 to 2019 he wins five more World Championships, not triumphing until 2015, the year in which he serves as the needle in the challenge between Valentino Rossi and Lorenzo.
