Marc Marquez: "I’m finding myself, I’m not ruling anything out"

Ducati Gresini team centaur Marc Marquez commented on his fourth place in the Grand Prix of Italy: at Mugello, the Catalan rider fought for a long time with Enea Bastianini for the podium but had to surrender to the great finish of the Beast: "I did not get on the podium becauseè the others had moreè today, but I am satisfied, I tried in every way to fight. I tried to push, to keep the pace". 

"Honestly when I passed Bastianini I thought I was going to catch Martin, then Enea è came back very strong and è he came second. In front Bagnaia did a great race in his turn. Looking at my race I was behind three bikes, that made the front tire temperature rise, as well as the pressure, and that’s why I couldn’t use the front much. To be closer you have to use the rear more, but when you do that you use it up more.

On the differences between GP24 and GP23: "I am struggling with them, so the level on the track è quite similar. They shouldn’t be very different, and I’m fighting with the best Ducati riders".

On the fight for the title: "It&#39s a year when I am finding myself, I&#39m going to do 100 percent and it doesn&#39t matter if we&#39re 35 points behind. I do not exclude anything, when I have to celebrate we celebrate, when I have to have fun, I have fun. We do not exclude anything but neither do I want to justify myself for having an inferior bike compared to Bagnaia and Martin, becauseé when I signed for Ducati they made it clear right away what they would give me and I accepted it".
