The words of Marc Marquez

Pecco Bagnaia stole pole position from him at the last second but Marc Marquez is still satisfied after qualifying in Le Mans: “I’m very happy, from yesterday to today I took a step forward. Yesterday I was going strong but I didn’t feel the bike and I was missing something. When you go so long without riding you lose the feeling a little bit. Today, however, I felt different on the bike. Slowly we are going stronger. We will struggle here in the race because in the many laps the Ducatis are stable on the braking. But I’m happy.”

He closed on his Honda: “With the new chassis we made a small step forward but I am not the right person to talk about that, I do 100 percent and work with the team to give the maximum to this project.”

After hitting a 125 world championship in 2010 and a Moto2 world championship 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.
