Marc Marquez, Puig’s backstory: "Not even half a bike…"
HRC team manager Alberto Puig in an interview with As told the backstory of Marc Marquez's farewell to Honda: "We tried to get him to stay, the only way to convince a champion è with facts, and we were unable to give him what he wanted".
"We have interesting plans for the future but we didn't get there in time,” Puig continued. “Marc can'fight for the title with half a bike, but Honda didn't even give him half a bike to be able to do that".
" I am sure that with the Ducati, even if from the previous year, he will fight for sure. He will beò happy if Marquez wins again, but I want to beat him, I work for Honda and we have to develop a bike".
The big regret of 2020: "There's been a summation of circumstances, almost all of them negative, that didn't help. If Marc had not had that accident in Jerez, things would have been different".
